ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Heat forward Chris Andersen was the victim of a wide-ranging Internet hoax that resulted in a raid of his Denver-area home last year, his lawyer said Wednesday, and prosecutors confirmed Andersen was cleared of wrongdoing in the ``extremely complex'' case.
Lisa Pinto, spokeswoman for the 18th Judicial District, told The Associated Press that the office is reviewing a 4,000-page report before charging decisions are made, but added that ``based on the information that we have been able to obtain and analyze, we are not pursuing charges against Chris Andersen.''
Andersen's lawyer and agent, Mark Bryant, said his client was duped by a woman in Canada who sought a relationship and gifts and who threatened a female acquaintance of Andersen's in California while impersonating the tattoo-covered fan favorite known as ``Birdman.''
