Keyshawn Johnson not charged, says he shouldn't have been arrested
The LA County District Attorney has declined to file charges against former NFL WR Keyshawn Johnson, who was arrested last month following a domestic violence incident.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney has declined to file charges against former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson, who was arrested last month following a domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Conrad.
Johnson, who works as an NFL analyst for ESPN, won't be charged because Conrad is no longer cooperating and, according to the District Attorney's report (via ESPN.com), "the injury appears to have been minor and caused accidentally."
"I am pleased that law enforcement acted quickly and that this matter has been fairly resolved," Johnson said in a statement. "The quick decision results from the fact that I should not have been arrested because no crime was committed. I did not and would not touch, grab or strike a woman -- any woman. Though Jennifer and I are both pleased that this matter is over, we very much resent the fact that I was ever arrested in the first place. I apologize to my friends, family, fans and colleagues for this matter."
Johnson, the Jets first-round pick in 1996, played 11 NFL seasons before joining ESPN in 2007.
