*Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen will not face felony charges for allegedly assaulting a police officer during a stop in Los Angeles, but could still face lesser charges down the road, according to TMZ.
Griffen was pulled over around 4:00 PM yesterday near the campus of his alma mater USC and he failed to produce ID. The athlete reportedly tried to take off on foot and allegedly assaulted an officer in the process.
The case has now been referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office for misdemeanor consideration, according to TMZ.
Per the charge evaluation worksheet — after cops tasered Griffin twice, he then reached up and grabbed the officer in the “crotch and squeezed.” Seeing as Griffin didn’t have a criminal history and there was “absence of injury,” the case was referred to the City Attorney for misdemeanor consideration.
