The NFL announced Thursday that Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers will not be punished after reviewing a complaint for alleged assault against Flowers, who was suspended without charge earlier this year following a police investigation.

“After a review, the NFL concluded that there was insufficient evidence to support the conclusion that Zay Flowers engaged in activities that violated the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy,” the league said in a statement, via NFL Media. “No action will be taken by the league and Flowers remains eligible to participate in all team activities.”

On January 21, police in Acton, Massachusetts contacted Baltimore County police to inform them that they had received a report of an assault that allegedly occurred in Owings Mills, Maryland , January 16.

According to the Acton report, a woman claimed she was bruised in an assault, but told police she was reluctant to provide information because the person involved was a high-profile NFL player, via WBALTV. The woman told police the brother of the person involved pulled out a gun.

Baltimore County police suspended the investigation in February and said investigators did not intend to file charges. The case could, however, be reopened if the ministry later considers that charges are justified.

Flowers, 23, is entering his second season in the NFL. Last year, he caught 77 passes for 858 yards and five touchdowns in 16 regular season games. Flowers caught nine passes for 156 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens’ two playoff games.
