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 unco-operative 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.
