REDMOND, Wash. -- Virginia Tech and Seattle Seahawks football star Kam Chancellor sent out a series of tweets Wednesday night in which the Hampton Roads native said employees at a Seattle-area athletic club called police on him. Chancellor showed up at the club because he was thinking about buying the place which went out of business after losing its lease, Q13 reported.

Chancellor said two women inside the building called 911 after they saw him look into the window and ask for help.

Redmond Police later confirmed what happened and issued a statement:

On March 2nd, 2016 at 4:25pm, Redmond Police Dispatch received a 911 call from a local gym. Two female employees were inside the closed facility alone and reported that five adults were outside their facility, some were pounding on the door and looking in the windows with cameras, as if they were trying to gain entry. The employees reported they weren't exactly sure what was going on, but the individuals did not appear to be leaving, even though the gym was closed for business.

Redmond Officers responded and made contact with five adults, who expressed they had an interest in purchasing the gym and were trying to make contact with someone inside the facility. Our interactions with the group were very positive, the group left the area without incident and no police report was filed.
