Ravens Player Involved In Domestic Assault Investigation: Report
Last updated Thursday at 6:17 p.m.
OWINGS MILLS, MD - Police are investigating a domestic assault case involving Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers, The Baltimore Banner reported Thursday afternoon.
Flowers has not been charged with any crimes. It's unclear how Flowers was "involved."
The Baltimore County Police Department told The Banner that it "had been made aware of an alleged assault in the Owings Mills area on Jan. 21."
The Banner said the investigation also involves a police department in Acton, Massachusetts.
Both agencies declined to release further details to The Banner.
"We are aware of the report regarding Zay Flowers," a Ravens spokesperson told FOX 45. "We take these matters seriously and will have no further comment at this time."
Flowers played in Baltimore's AFC Championship loss on Jan. 28, seven days after the date listed for the assault allegation.
It's unclear when the investigation began. It's also unclear whether the Ravens knew about the investigation before playing Flowers in the AFC Championship.
Flowers just finished his rookie season. The Ravens selected him with the 22nd pick in the first round of the 2023 draft.
The 23-year-old caught 77 passes for 858 yards this season. The Fort Lauderdale native also ran eight times for 56 yards.
Flowers graduated from Boston College. That's about 25 miles from Acton.
The Acton Police Department declined to comment when Patch called. A spokesperson cited a Massachusetts law that prohibits police from commenting on domestic violence investigations.
Acton Police would not confirm nor deny that they are part of an investigation involving Flowers. They directed our inquiry back to Baltimore County police.
Patch called the Baltimore County Police Department's public information office. They asked us to email our questions.
We submitted that request and asked for clarification on how Flowers was "involved." We haven't heard back.
