Denver Nuggets center Chris "Birdman" Andersen's home is the target of an ongoing investigation in a suspected Internet criminal case, 9Wants To Know has learned.

Douglas County Sheriff's Office Internet Crimes Against Children investigators seized property from Andersen's home in Larkspur.

Investigators have an ongoing investigation that began from a referral from a California law-enforcement agency. Deputies recovered property from the residence they believe is connected to the ongoing case.

Andersen has not been arrested in connection with this investigation. Deputies did say they have been investigating Andersen since February 2012.

9NEWS Sports Reporter Susie Wargin says Andersen did participate in practice Thursday morning. Andersen is currently scheduled to play Thursday night against the LA Lakers.

9Wants To Know is working on details on this case.

The home of Denver Nuggets star Chris Andersen -- aka The Birdman -- is being investigated by the Internet Crimes Against Children task force in Colorado ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... the Douglas County Sheriff's Dept. received a tip from a California law enforcement agency back in February ... and finally searched Andersen's home early this morning. We're told officials seized property from the residence during the search.

We're told Andersen has not been arrested -- or charged with a crime.

Chris' attorney had no comment.

At this point, we only know that his home is being investigated, so it could be that the investigation is centered on someone who is living with him and not Birdman himself.

But yeah, it's never a good thing to see the child pornography task force show up at your home with a search warrant.

so they seized property that he purchased online. maybe some kind of fraud.

does this have to do with the harrasment of children online? i dont think so. but thats what one thinks when reading the tittle.

It doesn't appear that the ICAC task force investigates fraud:


The ICAC Task Force was created to help Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies enhance their investigative responses to offenders who use the Internet, online communication systems, or computer technology to sexually exploit children. The Program is funded by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.

​​The ICAC Program is a national network of 61 coordinated task forces representing over 3,000 federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies. These agencies are engaged in proactive investigations, forensic investigations, and criminal prosecutions.

Sounds to me just by the vague wording and no charges as of yet. That this could be a BackPage hooker "massage therapist" add gone wrong. BP is on the IACA and just about every DA in the unions eye sights, for crimes against children.

Guessing all that off time he has been hitting one too many massage therapist adds and got mixed up in a deceiving one. Which if is the case, half the NBA could/should be charged. Therapy per diem? Look up "backpage.com" (news) to get an idea of how rampant and big of deal this is.

Also even if you delete photos or videos off the drive the cache section still stores an inprint of it so anything can still be recovered.

Must have had it saved on his computer, he deserves the harshest penalty of he did it.


Viewing child pornography on the Internet without taking further action such as printing or saving files does not necessarily constitute possession, New York's top court ruled on Tuesday.

Because inmates know 100% without a doubt who is guilty and who is not, and they target only the guilty offenders...riiiggghhttt...and someone who rapes someone deserves to be put to death? While I agree child molestation is unforgiveable and the most disturbing crime someone can commit, it is hardly just to take someones life when they didn't, the death penalty is not commensurate with child rape...I'm glad you're not a lawmaker, you seem to be brimming with hate and you're a fool to boot!

The Nuggets released this statement regarding Andersen: "The Denver Nuggets are aware of today’s media reports involving forward/center Chris Andersen. It involves a legal investigation and we are awaiting further details. Chris has been excused from all team-related activities indefinitely as he deals with the reported investigation. Per team policy, the Nuggets will not comment on any ongoing legal circumstance involving any player or employee."

Child rapists knowingly ruining someone existence who is totally unable to defend themselves. Anderson definately has demons and if he was looking at disgusting things i actually feel bad for him b/c he was likely fighting them. If he sank low enough to commit the act i agree that the world is a better place without him. The correct response to some impulses it take yourself out if you cant controll them. If you dont i see no reason why the state shouldnt

Inmates actually get to get caught up on a lot of news actually so yes they do know what's happening jack ***. It's pretty damn just when you take a child and rape them and beat the **** out of them when that child has done nothing wrong. They are haunted from that crap. I wish I was a lawmaker so I could make that legal. its the best way to set the tone showing you mean business with the death penalty

I don't think there is any rehabilitation for sex offenders, they have the highest recidivism rates of offenders...that doesn't mean they deserve to die...while it is true that their crime, the rape(s), cause much more damage in the long run than the short term, most often ruining an innocent persons life, that doesn't mean they deserve to die, they didn't kill anybody, and killing them won't undo the damage they have done...

It is funny how people are anti-death penalty and call it cruel and unusual, yet they don't complain about our country's prison system, where the guilty and not guilty are subject to violence and rape by fellow inmates...someone can be not guilty, sent to prison and then be raped...its rape courtesy of the state...while a child molester being raped by a fellow inmate is poetic justice, how about people in there for drugs, or theft, hardly deserving of the most despicable act (rape)...our prison system is cruel and unusual...

If you want an eye for an eye society, the death penalty is not the punishment for rape...IMO, rapists, if proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, should be castrated, plain and simple, and locked away for the rest of their lives, never to experience pleasure again...I think 60 years in a cell with 1 window too high to see through and only 30 min of outdoor time a day is much worse than the death penalty...

I wish I was a lawmaker so I could make that legal. its the best way to set the tone showing you mean business with the death penalty

So you're saying that inmates don't harm innocent people in prison, that they know without a doubt who is guilty and who is not, that they are held to some moral compass where they brutalize only the guilty to achieve some sort of justice?

I find it funny that inmates treat child molesters and rapists the worst in prison, as if there is a code, that they feel they are doing the right thing in beating some rapist to death, nevermind the innocent man they murdered, or the woman they stalked and killed, or the house they burnt down with a couple kids inside...I killed 3 innocent people doing a drive by, but I would never hurt a child! LOL scum is scum, its comical that they try to salvage their identity...

I used to be on board with the death penalty, but I'm not so sure anymore...I still approve of it being used to execute the worst murderers, who are unrepentant and proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, but applying it elsewhere is shaky, especially when you run the risk of executing an innocent person, and using it against child rapists is unjust, I prefer my method, of castration and the rest of their lives incarcerated...as a society, we are moving away from the death penalty and you're in the minority if you think rape should be punished with death...

Even though killing the person wont undo the damage, you wont have to worry about the person striking again and its a message that this is a serious crime and you will suffer a max punishment. I don't know about you, but if someone raped my kid and I know who did it, I'm killing that person without a second thought. If its your kid you can turn that person in if you want..

How many people have said they would go and kill someone if ____ happened, how many actually had the balls to do it? It's one thing saying you'll do it, its another actually going through with it, maybe you have it in you, more likely you're just another internet tough guy...

Connecticut just became the 17th state to abolish the death penalty two weeks ago...the direction we are heading as a society is towards Europe, where capital punishment has been completely abolished...we are moving away from executing even the worst criminals in society, your advocation of using capital punishment on child rapists would never happen, and only a small segment of the population would agree with you...where do you draw the line, how about a 33 yr old female teacher raping her 14 yr old male student? death penalty? there are differing degrees of rape, none of which equal the death penalty...like I said, if you want an eye for an eye society, your argument still wouldn't hold weight...

At first that's what I thought, but now that "Chris has been excused from all team related activities"...it shows that it DOES in fact deal with him.


Now, we just gotta look at what the crime was. Depending on what (getting a video or asking for webcam or asking to meet up or actually meeting up or etc). It all depends.

But it seems sure that it does involve him and not some roomate or something

According to you, its pretty cool when inmates beat up people who may or may not have raped children...so the inmates are up on the news, but they don't know who is innocent and who's not, they just know the person and the crime, so yes they beat on and rape innocent people, and all that is pretty cool to you...

Personally, I don't rejoice in the suffering of others, not even the worst criminals, I would prefer they didn't do the crime, my concern is that they are punished and never do it again...

I have seen news stories of kids being raped and murdered, or children being killed and the family seeking justice and the father saying he's gonna kill the perp, etc...then in the end they do a 180 and dont even want the death penalty...I pray that you and I are not faced with a situation like that, ever, but don't be naive and think its easy to kill someone, its one thing to say it, another to do it, and doing so will stick with you for the rest of your life, you couldn't imagine what goes through your mind in a moment like that and fortunately neither could I...

If I was old enough to do anything about it I would.. Keep prefering they don't do the crime because in the real world they do and it's not going to stop. however a way to reduce it is to send out a message and handing out the death penalty.

I think that law had good intentions in mind but the execution was terrible. Would you want to be thrown in jail because you clicked on a thread and it turned out to be filled with pictures of child porn?

It's legal to view it but it's illegal to be in possession of it. So the only place you can legally look at child porn is on the internet.

That will not last for very long. I imagine the NY legislature will step in and fill the gap soon (i.e., criminalize viewing).

It may not make much of a difference, though, as viewing child porn remains a federal crime.

He worked with kids too. I think that is what alerted the authorities more than anything. I hope it's really just his friend or maybe him looking at 16-17 year old girls, and not actual children. Either way, not good news.

That makes no sense though if you think about it. If there wasn't an audience there goes your supply/demand. The people watching it are as bad as the people supplying it. Just terrible.

I understand there are extreme cases. Everybody gets crazy stuff in their email, but to make it ok opens up wayyyyyy too many avenues for scum. Thank you for the link bro.

I have a feeling the FBI will take a **** all over NY law though.

This is the most uneducated stupid statement I ever heard in my life. What does someone's location or team have to do with child crimes? Are no child molesters living in NY? Is Colorado the chomo capitol of the world? Do people mysteriously stop being scum because they moved to NY?

ha, thats pretty funny you called the other guys comment uneducated

I don't think there is any rehabilitation for sex offenders, they have the highest recidivism rates of offenders...that doesn't mean they deserve to die...while it is true that their crime, the rape(s), cause much more damage in the long run than the short term, most often ruining an innocent persons life, that doesn't mean they deserve to die, they didn't kill anybody, and killing them won't undo the damage they have done...

It is funny how people are anti-death penalty and call it cruel and unusual, yet they don't complain about our country's prison system, where the guilty and not guilty are subject to violence and rape by fellow inmates...someone can be not guilty, sent to prison and then be raped...its rape courtesy of the state...while a child molester being raped by a fellow inmate is poetic justice, how about people in there for drugs, or theft, hardly deserving of the most despicable act (rape)...our prison system is cruel and unusual...

If you want an eye for an eye society, the death penalty is not the punishment for rape...IMO, rapists, if proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, should be castrated, plain and simple, and locked away for the rest of their lives, never to experience pleasure again...I think 60 years in a cell with 1 window too high to see through and only 30 min of outdoor time a day is much worse than the death penalty...


I think the prison system is awful as is the way we treat ex cons. I also think that its just more reasonable to put those type people away for good then have some elaborate torture system

Maybe we should all settle down before we go calling him out...


A lawyer for Nuggets center Chris Andersen today provided a statement to The Denver Post that gives a glimpse into the complicated case involving the player's home being searched by sheriff's deputies investigating Internet crimes against children.

Douglas County investigators on Thursday went to Andersen's home in Larkspur and seized property. Andersen, 33, has not been arrested or charged with a crime.

In the statement, Colin Bresee, an attorney for Andersen, suggested that a woman from California has has tried to get items of value from Andersen. The statement reads:

"A female fan in 2010 mailed Mr. Andersen multiple letters and included several photos in which she was scantily clad. Chris and this woman communicated with each other and in 2011, this woman, who represented herself as 21 years of age, flew to Colorado, showing her required identification. After leaving Colorado, she became upset at his lack of interest. In 2012, she threatened to retaliate if he did not provide financial remuneration. "

According to the statement, someone purporting to be the woman's mother wrote in an email that " 'i (sic) want him to pay for everything on her Amazon wish list, 5K for her bedding stuff and her victoria secret wish list."

"Professional athletes are routinely targeted by these types of individuals," the statement said. "The media has been speculating that he's a suspect and not a victim in a criminal investigation. Mr. Andersen has been fully cooperative with the authorities. The investigation is expected to take three weeks. We're confident it will show that Chris did not engage in any criminal conduct."

Thursday afternoon, the Nuggets said Andersen had been "excused indefinitely" from team activities while Douglas County sheriff's detectives investigate.

Andersen has been under investigation since February, when a California law enforcement agency tipped off Douglas County.

Well good news, ESPN is reporting that basically, a female fan mailed him scantily clad pictures back in 2010, when she was probably underage but she's 21 now. And this lady and her mom tried to extort money and make him buy stuff for her, but he had no interest whatsoever. And now the police are busting that woman, and the police search of Birdman's home is just "standard procedure".

BIRDMAN COMES OUT ON TOP AGAIN.

It said they were investigating since Feb so I dont know if that's the whole story. For them to go in and take all his computers and ****, there would probably have to be more to it right? I don't know much about the procedure for this kind of thing but it seems a littled excessive if it's just a spurned fan.
