State police probing Saints alleged wiretapping

State police probing Saints alleged wiretapping

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 says the task force began work Tuesday, examining whether there were possible violations of state or federal wiretapping laws.

Loomis and the Saints have called the allegations “1000 percent false,” and have said they are reviewing legal recourse following an ESPN report Monday in which anonymous sources described a setup that would have allowed the general manager to eavesdrop on opponents from 2002 to 2004. ESPN could not verify the system was used.

Still, the alleged actions would violate NFL rules, if not state and federal laws.
