Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks will reportedly not be charged following his domestic violence arrest.

On Tuesday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reported the Sacramento County district attorney declined to file charges, although a spokesperson clarified it was "pending further investigation."

Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com previously reported Westbrooks was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in Sacramento, California.

Gonzalez noted police found injuries on the mother of one of Westbrook's children when they responded to a child custody dispute. The Sacramento Police Department called the injuries "non-life-threatening" in a news release, via Gonzalez.

The defensive lineman went undrafted out of West Texas A&M but played all 16 games in 2016 and tallied a career-high 24 tackles. Curtis Crabtree of Pro Football Talk noted Los Angeles placed an original-round restricted free-agent tender on Westbrook this offseason that was worth $1.797 million.
