No charges against Keyshawn Johnson

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Prosecutors won't file criminal charges against ESPN analyst 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 the former NFL wide receiver with domestic violence. Authorities say the victim was uncooperative and the injury appeared to be minor and accidental.

In a statement, Johnson denies committing a crime and says he's pleased the matter has been resolved.

Johnson was arrested last month after an argument with Jennifer Conrad at a home in Calabasas.

Authorities say 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 with the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers.
