Former USC and NFL football player Keyshawn Johnson won't face any charges in connection with his arrest last month after reports of a domestic battery incident involving his ex-girlfriend at his Calabasas home.

Johnson, 40, was taken into custody shortly before 1 a.m. April 21 when Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies responded to a call of possible spousal assault at his home. His former girlfriend reportedly told the investigator her finger was scratched during an argument over a phone.

A prosecutor, however, noted the girlfriend did not cooperate with a subsequent investigation and her injury was minor and appeared to be the result of accidental contact.

Johnson first made his name as a USC standout receiver before playing in the NFL for the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers. Since retiring, he has worked as a TV football analyst and appeared on "Dancing With the Stars."

He gained notoriety in his Calabasas neighborhood last year for confronting singer Justin Bieber after he reportedly saw the pop star's car speeding through their gated community while children were outside.
