The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office says it has decided not to file any criminal charges against Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri.

The decision follows police reports of a physical altercation between Ujiri and an Alameda County sheriff’s deputy after the NBA championship game in Oakland on June 13.

“Mr. Ujiri attended a meeting with the District Attorney’s Office focused on matters that we believe merited constructive, structured mediation and conflict resolution and were better handled in a setting outside of the courtroom,” Deputy District Attorney Teresa Drenick said in an email to the Star.

The Alameda County District launched a preliminary review, followed by an investigation, on July 29, Drenick said. The additional investigation lasted until Sept. 21.

Drenick said the matter was handled in a private meeting that Ujiri attended on Monday at the Sheriff’s Department, which was attended by Assistant District Attorney Terry Wiley, Ujiri and his attorneys.

Following this, Drenick said the District Attorney’s Office won’t be taking any further action.
