No charges after drug investigation of Minnesota wrestlers

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Prosecutors say no criminal charges will be filed in an investigation of University of Minnesota wrestlers allegedly involved in the sale and use of the anti-anxiety drug Xanax.

University police investigators say Hennepin County prosecutors declined to pursue the case due to ''lack of evidence.''

A spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office told The Associated Press on Wednesday: ''We have declined to press charges at this time.'' She would not elaborate.

Also, Minneapolis City Attorney Susan Segal told the Star Tribune that there was not enough evidence to support misdemeanor charges against wrestling coach J Robinson.

Campus police had been conducting an investigation into a team member's disputed allegation that Robinson attempted to cover up the widespread sale and use of Xanax by his wrestlers.

Robinson is on paid leave.
