Pistons coach Mo Cheeks not charged in domestic incident
Pistons coach questioned by police but not charged after witness becomes uncooperative and leaves state.
Over Labor Day, Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks was questioned by police regarding a domestic incident. Now the Detroit Free Press reports Cheeks will not be charged in relation to the incident.
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.
Sounds like nothing there to make a fuss over, and Cheeks' cooperation with police is always comforting from a PR standpoint.
It's important to take note of situations like this, to make sure that ater you hear something like "NBA entity questioned by police" that a lot of the time, nothing comes of it. This appears to be one of those cases.
