Police Confirm Gym Employees Called Cops on Seattle Seahawk Kam Chancellor

By Sameer Rao Mar 03, 2016

Police in Redmond, Washington, confirmed that they responded to a call concerning Seattle Seahawks player Kam Chancellor—an incident that Chancellor tweeted about right after it happened.

Chancellor said that he went to Redmond, a Seattle suburb, yesterday (March 2) to check out a recently closed-down gym. The strong safety, who runs fitness boot camps for women, expressed interest in purchasing the gym:


Redmond Police Department issued a statement to Deadspin confirming that two employees in the closed-down gym called 911 after unidentified individuals pounded on the gym door: 

On March 2nd, 2016 at 4:25pm, Redmond Police Dispatch received a 911 call from a local gym. Two female employees were inside the closed facility alone and reported that five adults were outside their facility, some were pounding on the door and looking in the windows with cameras, as if they were trying to gain entry. The employees reported they weren’t exactly sure what was going on, but the individuals did not appear to be leaving, even though the gym was closed for business. 

Redmond Police’s public information officer further told Deadspin that the situation was diffused and a report wasn’t filed:

Our officers got there and had a great interaction with Kam and four other guys. Super positive. Super nice guy. We didn’t even do a police report.

Chancellor also tweeted that he took a picture of the employees as they called the police, but wouldn’t post it: "I want to post her face so bad on the phone looking disgusted."
