The L.A. City Attorney’s Office decided not to move forward with the case against Penn.
“The office rejected this case because of lack of corroboration and on the ground that there is no reasonable likelihood of conviction on the domestic violence matter,” a spokesperson tells TMZ. “Bottom line, lack of sufficient evidence.”
A few weeks ago, TMZ Sports reported that Penn was a suspect in a domestic violence incident after he allegedly slapped his wife’s butt and then poured a drink on her head.
According to the report, cops were called to Penn’s Los Angeles home Sunday evening, but Penn had already left the scene when they arrived.
Penn’s wife told police that he “got handsy” and slapped her butt before pouring a drink on her head and grabbing her by the wrist
Penn, 35, originally signed on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Utah State back in 2006. After a few months in Minnesota, Penn signed on with the Buccaneers during his rookie season and spent eight years in Tampa Bay before he was released back in 2014.
The Raiders signed Penn to a contract soon after before signing him to a $21M extension last year.
In 2017, Penn appeared in 14 games for the Raiders and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 23 offensive tackle out of 81 qualifying players.
