San Francisco Anchor Accused of Theft


The Golden State Warriors are once again in the NBA playoffs, but KGO Anchor Mike Shumann is not covering the action. 

Word is that Shumann was caught on video taking a security staffer's jacket after a team practice last week in San Antonio.

On the video, Shumann appears to take a jacket belonging to Ralph Walker, the Warriors' director of team security, as he walks out of the AT&T Center.

Several Warriors players were upset over the incident and didn't want it quickly dismissed, Shumann is a former wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers and longtime TV reporter in the city.

The Warriors have an agreement with KGO to provide exclusive interviews with players, interviews that usually have been conducted by Shumann.

Players are now refusing to do those interviews and will not talk to Shumann. 

A spokesman for KGO on Monday issued the following statement: "We are taking these allegations very seriously and conducting a full investigation. As a matter of policy, we do not comment about personnel matters."

Shumann apologized to individual Warriors players and reportedly he was sent home from San Antonio after the incident.

He was not part of the station's postgame show Sunday night.
