Chargers' Antonio Cromartie won't face criminal charges

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) — The San Diego Police Department says it has determined there is not enough evidence to prove a bar patron's claim that Chargers cornerback Antonio Cromartie hit him in the head with a champagne bottle hours after the team's victory at Denver.

Spokeswoman Monica Munoz said Thursday the case will not be sent to the City Attorney's Office because the investigation found there was not enough evidence to prove a crime occurred.

Cromartie had been under investigation for assault with a deadly weapon.

Detective Gary Hassen said a witness claimed Cromartie threw a champagne bottle but the player said it slipped from his hand.

A man sustained a cut to the back of his head but nobody was hospitalized or arrested early on Nov. 23.
