A week and a half ago, Los Angeles Rams DE Ethan Westbrooks was arrested on domestic violence charges. Today, those charges have been dropped:

The Sacramento County district attorney's office has declined to file charges against Los Angeles Rams defensive end Ethan Westbrooks, a spokesperson said on Tuesday.


Westbrooks was arrested March 5 on suspicion of domestic violence after police responded to a call regarding a child custody dispute and found injuries to the upper body of the mother of one of Westbrooks' children. An investigation determined she had suffered non-life-threatening injuries during a domestic violence incident that involved Westbrooks, according to a news release issued by the Sacramento Police Department.

Without having the details of the investigation and the subsequent decision of why the charges were dropped, it’s impossible to know what went on. Suffice to say domestic violence is not something to take lightly. If you, or someone you know, is a victim of domestic violence, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−SAFE(7233) or TTY 1−800−787−3224.

Westbrooks remains a restricted free agent.
