Feds Probe Alleged Wiretapping by NFL Team

April 26, 2012  | 

A joint Louisiana State Police and FBI task force is investigating allegations that the New Orleans Saints set up general manager Mickey Loomis' booth in the Superdome so he could listen in on opposing coaches.

State police Col. Mike Edmonson confirmed the joint effort Tuesday after discussing the matter with Dave Welker, special agent in charge at the FBI's New Orleans field office.

"I thought that was an excellent opportunity to share resources to see if federal or state wiretapping laws were in fact broken," Edmonson told CBS Sports. "It's important for the public to know these are allegations at this point. We will thoroughly, expeditiously, but fairly look into whether any laws have been broken. If they have, we'll sit down with the district attorney in that area to determine how to proceed."

Loomis has said the reports are "1000 percent false."

Go La.!!! Bust them thar footballers!!! Bring the Feds in too! Show the good folks of Louisiana what their tax money is being used for! After all, N'Orleans is just about crime free! No drug dealers or gangs shooting it out on the corners. Yep, impressive.
