Everson Griffen will not face felony charges

Everson Griffen will not face felony charges stemming from his arrest Monday in Los Angeles on suspicion of battery after he allegedly assaulted a police officer.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney announced it declined to pursue felony charges because the officer was not injured and Griffen does not have a criminal history, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The case will be considered for a misdemeanor and Griffen was released from jail today after posting bail of $50,000. He’s scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 25.

The Vikings and NFL are looking into the matter. Griffen was arrested on Saturday for being drunk in public.
