Raiders LT Donald Penn won't be charged following domestic violence investigation


Raiders left tackle Donald Penn will not be charged following an investigation into an allegded domestic violence incident, a Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman told NBC Sports Bay Area on Wednesday afternoon. 

L.A. police were called to Penn's house on April 29 and, according to a police report obtained by TMZ, Penn slapped his wife's behind, poured a drink on her head and grabbed her by the wrist during an argument. Penn was not at the house when police arrived. 

Donald and Dominique Penn issued a statement through a representative the following day stating that a verbal disagreement never turned physical. Police conducted an investigation with Donald Penn as the main suspect, but the City Attorney chose not to pursue charges relating to the incident. According to the City Attorney spokesman, the decision was "based on insufficient evidence likely to result in a conviction."

Donald Penn has been present during Raiders offseason workouts, but remains sidelined during on-field sessions while recovering from foot surgery.
