COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A prosecutor says charges won’t be filed against Dallas Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott following domestic violence allegations.

The office of Columbus City Attorney Richard Pfeiffer cites conflicting and inconsistent information in evidence supporting the filing of criminal charges.

Pfeiffer’s office said it examined the credibility of all identified witnesses.

Elliott’s agent Frank Salzano said Tuesday Elliott and his family were pleased with the outcome and Elliott looked forward to putting the issue behind him.

A police report says Elliott denied allegations that he assaulted his girlfriend in July, causing bruises and abrasions.

Three witnesses told police they didn’t see Elliott assault the 20-year-old woman. Elliott says the woman got the bruises and abrasions in a bar fight.

Elliott is a running back who played at Ohio State.

The NFL said it would conduct its own review of the matter, and spokesman Brian McCarthy said Tuesday that is continuing.
