Grizzlies' Jaric Not Charged in Assault Allegation 

The Associated Press is reporting that Philadelphia prosecutors will not file charges against Grizzlies player Marko Jaric in relation to the sexual assault allegation that surfaced yesterday. The AP reports that Philly officials say the accusations "lack prosecutorial merit."

Jaric's attorney released a statement tonight that reads as follows:

“I received official word from the Philadelphia District Attorneys office that after a thorough investigation no charges will be filed against my client Marko Jaric, (an NBA player for the Memphis Grizzlies), in connection with the alleged incident with an unnamed female on February 11, 2009 while his team was in town to play the 76ers.

Persons in Marko’s position are often the target of malicious statements and it is not unusual for the police to be asked to investigate. However, these allegations were proved to be completely false, and while Marko is extremely unsettled by these accusations, he is happy that the law enforcement authorities have cleared him of any criminal conduct and the issue can now be put to rest.”
