Ravens WR Zay Flowers investigation alleged domestic assault
Baltimore Ravens receiver Zay Flowers under investigation for alleged domestic assault, no charges filed. Incident occurred in Owings Mills, Maryland.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers is currently the subject of an investigation by the Baltimore County Police for an alleged domestic assault, as reported by the Baltimore Banner. While Flowers has not been charged with a crime, neither the Ravens nor his agent have responded to requests for comments on the matter.
In addition to the Baltimore County Police, the Acton Police Department in Massachusetts is also involved in the investigation. However, they have declined to provide the report to the Banner, citing state laws that keep communications between the police and victims of domestic violence or sexual assault confidential.
The alleged incident took place in the Owings Mills, Md., area on January 21, as confirmed by the Baltimore County Police. Notably, Flowers, who was the 22nd overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, played in the AFC Championship game just a week later against the Kansas City Chiefs.
During the playoffs, Flowers, 23, led the Ravens in receptions with 9 and accumulated 156 receiving yards along with a touchdown. However, he also received a 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty and fumbled on a crucial goal-line drive during the game against the Chiefs, which ultimately led to the Ravens' defeat.
In the regular season, Flowers set franchise records for a rookie with 77 catches and 858 receiving yards, as well as scoring six total touchdowns. As the investigation is still pending, no further details have been provided about the case.
