The Denver Nuggets forward is under investigation for his potential connections to sexually exploitive behavior towards children.

Denver's own CBS4 is reporting that Denver Nuggets F Chris Andersen is under investigation (official sheriff's release) for potentially grave infringements.

Andersen has played five seasons in Denver, but incurring trouble with the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force could be a potentially serious problem. According to the ICAC home page, the task force deals exclusively with the sexual exploitation of children:
