According to the report, the Cowboys knew of the investigation before Spillman took the field the next day. He was allowed to play the rest of the season, and was indicted two months after he became a free agent that summer.

Spillman was also accused of attempted rape on a Bay Area massage therapist, but charges were never handed down.
