Detroit Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks will not be charged in a domestic incident that occurred Aug. 30 in Birmingham, Mich., Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper told the Detroit Free Press on Friday.

Cheeks went to the Birmingham police station for questioning and was released after police were called to a Woodward Avenue address. He was not arrested. Birmingham police conducted an investigation and presented its findings to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office.

Cooper said the witness in the investigation was uncooperative with prosecutors and refused to press charges. "She left the state and refused to cooperate," Cooper said.
