DENVER (AP) - An attorney for Chris "Birdman" Andersen says he believes the allegations that led to a search of the Denver Nuggets player's home this week involve a spurned female fan.

Denver attorney M. Colin Bresee confirmed to The Associated Press a statement he gave to the Denver Post. In it, he says the woman asked Andersen for "financial remuneration" after traveling to Colorado last year.

Bresee's statement says he expects the investigation by the Douglas County sheriff's Internet Crimes Against Children unit to take three weeks, and it will show no criminal wrongdoing by Andersen.

Sheriff's officials did not immediately return calls asking for comment about Bresee's statement. But they confirm that the Crimes Against Children unit began investigating Andersen in February after a law enforcement tip from California.
