Keyshawn Johnson - Keyshawn Johnson's Domestic Violence Case Dropped

Los Angeles prosecutors have decided not to press charges against retired American footballer Keyshawn Johnson following an arrest for domestic violence last month (Apr14).

The sportsman became embroiled in a heated argument with his on/off girlfriend at his Calabasas, California home on 21 April (14), and a local who overheard the couple's shouting match became alarmed and called police.

Johnson, a former neighbour of Justin Bieber's, was booked for misdemeanour domestic battery and was released on $20,000 (£12,500) bail, but now authorities have chosen not to pursue legal action.

According to Tmz.com, officials determined the emergency call was an overreaction and the fight over a cell phone was not serious enough to require prosecution.

Johnson, who now works as a Tv pundit for U.S. sports network Espn, hit headlines last year (13) after fuming about Bieber's sports car-driving, fast-paced partying lifestyle in the gated community they shared in Calabasas.

They have both since moved out - Johnson sold his pad to Kourtney Kardashian in August (13), while Bieber offloaded his mansion to the reality Tv star's sister Khloe in March (14).
