The Florida State Attorney’s Office dismissed a battery complaint against Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Caleb Brantley on Wednesday.
According to court records, the case was dismissed for “insufficient evidence to sustain a conviction.”
Brantley’s case stems from an altercation early on the morning of April 13, in which he was alleged to have struck a woman at a bar in Gainesville, Fla., where Brantley starred for the Florida Gators. In a sworn affidavit, a security guard said that the woman first punched Brantley, who pushed her away without knocking her down to the ground.
The Browns selected Brantley with the first pick of the sixth round (No. 185 overall) in the NFL draft. Executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said afterward that the team was still investigating the incident at the time of the selection.
