Teething Pain: DNA Tests Put Bite On Marv Albert

Q: Do DNA tests link sportscaster Marv Albert to the alleged sexual assault of a Virginia woman?

A: Yesss!

Here's a police lab report, filed this week in the Arlington County Circuit Court, detailing how genetic evidence ties the NBC broadcaster to a February encounter in an Arlington hotel room. Laboratory tests matched an Albert blood sample with semen recovered from the victim's clothes and her chest. Other genetic material, recovered from a bite mark on the woman's back, also matched Albert's DNA profile.

Albert, who denies any wrongdoing, is scheduled to face trial September 22 on sodomy and assault charges.

Please note that while we never alter documents on our site, we have deleted the name of the victim of this alleged sexual attack from this report. Thanks to Allison Bowles, The Smoking Gun's northern Virginia bureau chief, for tracking down this document. (6 pages)
