Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Zay Flowers is under investigation by police regarding allegations of domestic assault, according to a report.
On Thursday afternoon, The Baltimore Banter reported that Flowers is being investigated for an alleged domestic assault incident in Baltimore County last month. The report stated that police in Acton, Massachusetts, are also investigating the matter:
“Baltimore County Police are investigating an alleged domestic assault involving Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers, The Baltimore Banner has confirmed.
The investigation also includes a police department in Acton, Massachusetts, which acknowledged a domestic violence incident report related to an incident in Baltimore County last month and involving Flowers.
Acton Police declined to release the report, citing state laws that keep confidential communications between victims and police in cases of domestic violence or sexual assault. An Acton Police spokesman also cited the law and declined to answer questions on the matter.
When asked if they were investigating Flowers, Baltimore County Police also acknowledged that the department had been made aware of an alleged assault in the Owings Mills area on Jan. 21. A spokesman said the matter was pending and the department would not release additional details at this time.”
Flowers has not been charged with a crime.
The Boston College product was drafted in the first round (22nd overall) by the Ravens in last year’s draft. Flowers emerged as the Ravens’ leading receiver, finishing the year with 77 receptions for 858 yards and five touchdowns.
Baltimore finished with the best record in football (14-3) and advanced all the way to the AFC Championship Game, where they were ousted by Patrick Mahomes and the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs.
The 23-year-old Flowers played four seasons of college football at Boston College (2019 to 2022). He was a two-time First-team All-ACC selection who also earned Third-team All-American honors in the 2022 season.
We’ll be sure to provide more details on this matter when they become available.
