LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors won’t file criminal charges against for Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Keyshawn Johnson for a scuffle that scratched his ex-girlfriend’s finger.
Los Angeles County prosecutors announced Friday that there isn’t enough evidence to charge Johnson with domestic violence.
Authorities said the victim was uncooperative and the injury appeared to be minor and accidental.
In a statement, Johnson, now an ESPN analyst, denied committing a crime and said he was pleased the matter has been resolved.
Johnson was arrested last month after an argument with Jennifer Conrad at a home in Calabasas.
Authorities said Johnson tried to take her cellphone, and during the struggle her shirt collar was torn and she received a small scratch.
Johnson spent 11 years in the NFL. In addition to the Bucs, he played for the New York Jets, Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers.
