By Mike McDermottProsecutors in Massachusetts have dropped groping charges filed in November against Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman.
Edelman had been accused of touching a woman inappropriately on a dance floor at a Boston nightclub. Suffolk County prosecutors say they did not find enough evidence to prove an intentional act of indecent assault. The investigation included review of a videotape of the dance floor and statements from witnesses.
"The evidence suggests that he approached a woman on the dance floor and took her hand briefly," Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said in a statement, according to The Boston Globe. "Review of the videotape indicates that the physical contact between the two was fleeting ... and did not meet the elements of any crime."
