Crabtree finally home in Texas after traffic stop
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Michael Crabtree made it home to Texas for the rest of the 49ers bye week.
After a short delay, that is. The wide receiver tweeted that he was pulled over Wednesday on Interstate 280 while en route to the airport and missed his flight.
He said the police kept him for 30 minutes and then fessed up to being a fan of the Oakland Raiders, not Crabtree’s Niners.
Crabtree tweeted Thursday: “Back in Dallas, about to chill with my fam and get me some good BBQ.”
Crabtree had hoped to catch a game by his alma mater, Texas Tech, but the Red Raiders are on the road this weekend. The 10th overall draft pick in 2009, Crabtree has 20 receptions for 209 yards and no touchdowns for San Francisco (5-1).
