(FOX NEWS) The NFL's investigation into whether the New England Patriots used deliberately under-inflated footballs against the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship game has focused on a locker room attendant at the Patriots' stadium.
Fox Sports reported Monday that the attendant could be seen on surveillance video bringing 12 balls supplied by the Patriots for use on offense into another room at Gillette Stadium after a pregame inspection by the game officials. Under NFL rules, each team must present their chosen footballs to the game officials for inspection and approval two hours and fifteen minutes before the start of each game.
Fox Sports also reported that the attendant was interviewed by NFL investigators last week as part of their investigation. It has not been determined whether any wrongdoing took place.
