An investigation into an altercation involving UConn running back Lyle McCombs at the Student Recreational Facility has closed, and no charges will be filed against either person, according to the UConn Police Department.

"The investigation is now closed," Deputy Chief Hans Rhynhart told The Daily Campus Monday afternoon. "After a review of the facts gathered during the investigation, it has been determined that charges will not be filed against either person."

An altercation ensued in the gym on Jan. 21 during a game of basketball. Multiple witnesses said that McCombs, who ranks fourth in UConn history with 2,681 rushing yards, was one of the two people involved. The name of the other student was not released.

McCombs, a redshirt junior, will play his fourth and final season for the Huskies this fall.
