New York Giants defensive tackle Jay Bromley will not be charged by police following a January incident in which a woman said he tried to sexually assault her and then struck her with his car while fleeing, according to a statement from his attorney and a media report.
"As we stated from the outset, the allegations against Mr. Bromley were completely false," Bromley's attorney, Alex Spiro, said in a statement released Friday. "Today, Mr. Bromley has been officially cleared of all wrongdoing. We are thankful to law enforcement for their efforts, and are hopeful that the focus can now return to Jay Bromley's remarkable story."
A high-ranking police official also told the New York Daily News on Friday that Bromley is "not going to be charged. There's no criminality."
Bromley, 23, interacted with the 26-year-old woman on Instagram, according to multiple media reports. Early on Jan. 30, they went out together and then went to a Manhattan hotel, where Bromley got a room, and they engaged in some physical activity. When Bromley attempted to engage in further sexual activity, the woman refused, a police source had told ABC News.
Bromley left the hotel, and the woman followed him, demanding a ride home. She climbed on the roof of Bromley's car, but he kept driving, and she fell off, injuring her leg and knee, according to reports.
The woman was taken to a hospital, where she made the allegations of assault and attempted sexual assault, reports said.
The Giants picked Bromley in the second round of the 2014 draft. He played in all 16 games this season and compiled 36 tackles.
