Though rumor has it the NFL is going to fine him for attending an unsanctioned event without wearing something Panthery.

Cam Newton of Carolina Panthers not a person of interest after shooting, police say - ESPN
WSOC-TV in Charlotte published photos and video Tuesday night that showed Newton on stage with Young Jeezy -- one of the rappers scheduled to perform at the party -- before gunshots sent people ducking to the ground and fleeing for the exits. According to the station, shots were heard moments after the pictures were taken.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department spokesman Rob Tufano says Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is not a person of interest following a weekend shooting at a Charlotte nightclub.

So here's what I surmise from this, deductive reasoning if you will, with my Hater hat on:

  • They cleared Newton once they saw neither his Colt 45 or his Ruger had not been fired
  • All of the weapons in his entourage checked out too obviously
  • Neither Plaxico Burress nor Greg Hardy were with Newton at the club
  • Though police made it clear Newton is NOT a person of interest they do still find him interesting and sought his autograph on several occasions
  • Cam's fashion sense is still out there a little bit (WTF is that scarf and jacket?)
  • The Bucs and Falcons still suck
  • Young Jeezy isn't looking so young anymore
  • Nightclub video quality is still stuck in the '80s
  • The CIAA basketball league suddenly got amnesia on where their sanctioned events are being held
  • The Charlotte media will report on anything that has to do with Cam
That about does it...what did I leave out?
