“He’s our head coach, so nothing changes with his status,” Pistons spokesman Kevin Grigg said today. “We are not commenting on the situation.”
When asked this morning for information about a complaint involving Cheeks, Birmingham Police Chief Donald Studt said there is an ongoing investigation, but he would neither confirm nor deny that it involves Cheeks.
“Generally, when domestic violence is alleged, we have to investigate and present a case to the prosecutor’s office,” Studt said.
I don’t know of anyone who suspected the Pistons might fire Maurice Cheeks due to this incident, but in case you were unsure, here you go. The bigger question is how the Pistons handle this once more information comes to light, but that can’t be answered until more information actually comes to light. So far, that hasn’t happened.
