NO CRIME. Three years ago, I reported a police blotter item involving twin brothers who played football at Northern Illinois and Wisconsin. Both brothers have been cleared.

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu, a former University of Wisconsin standout, has been acquitted of burglary charges in Illinois.

A DeKalb County judge acquitted Ikegwuonu on Friday of residential burglary and criminal trespassing.

Ikegwuonu and his twin brother, Bill, were arrested in November 2006. They were accused of trying to steal a video game system from an apartment in the city of DeKalb.

No theft, and the young men were looking for somebody who was not home at the time.
