    The Florida State Attorney’s Office has declined to pursue charges against NFL safety Clinton Hart, who was arrested in late April following a domestic incident involving the internet site Facebook and his wife.
    According to Suevon Lee of Ocala.com, Hart had been arrested on a charge of battery/domestic violence despite the protests of his wife, Kelli, who was involved in the altercation.
    Prosecutor Toby Hunt said “There obviously were some issues with the case.” Baiscally, Hunt said Kelli Hart “didn’t want to cooperate with prosecutors,” and that was the main reason no charges were filed.

    According to the police report, the incident began when messages were delivered to Clinton Hart’s Facebook account by another woman on April 28th.
    Clinton and Kelli Hart were at her business, and when he left to retrieve his cell phone to log out of the account, she refused to let him back into the business.
    The two then allegedly got into a struggle over the phone, which somehow had found its way into Kelli Hart’s back pocket. Her pocket was ripped and she may have been struck durring the encounter.
    Kelli Hart then allegedly threatened to throw a brick through her husband’s windshield, according to the police report.
    Prosecutor Hunt said there were no independent witnesses to the incident and due to Kelli Hart’s refusal to cooperate, the state didn’t have a case to go forward with.
    “Her indication was that she had no desire to prosecute,” he said.
    Reached by phone Monday morning, Clinton Hart said he felt there should have been another “judgment call” made by police that day.
    Clinton Hart is an seven year veteran of the NFL who has played for the Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers, and St.Louis Rams. He has 268 tackles and 10 interceptions in his career.
