won't be charged for assault over allegations that he beat his then-pregnant girlfriend
in Las Vegas last March.
The ex-girlfriend, Supriya Harris
, filed a complaint
with the Las Vegas police last month claiming that Jackson took her to the hospital afterward and asked that she tell medical officials she slipped in the shower. The couple had a healthy baby boy a few days later.
Yesterday a spokeswoman for the Las Vegas police told
the Associated Press
that Harris' allegation from eleven months ago
could not be substantiated. "Our
investigation is complete," said the spokeswoman. "I don't think the
time passage was a factor
here. We contacted the victim, the accused and witnesses. There's
insufficient evidence to go forward with the case."
