The high-powered Hollywood agent who allegedly groped actor Terry Crews will not face charges because the case falls outside the statute of limitations, Los Angeles officials confirmed Wednesday.

Los Angeles police in November opened an investigation into the allegation after the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star filed a report against talent agent Adam Venit. The LAPD would not elaborate on the specific allegations Crews outlined in his police report, citing privacy laws regarding sexual assault cases. But on Oct. 10, Crews said in a series of tweets that he was at an event in 2016 with his wife when a Hollywood executive groped him.

Later, on ABC's Good Morning America, the former football player confirmed news reports that the alleged assaulter was high-powered talent agent Adam Venit.

"He comes over to me, I stick my hand out, and he literally takes his hand and puts it and squeezes my genitals," Crews said on GMA. "I jump back like, 'Hey, hey.'"

The Los Angeles district attorney’s office declined to file charges Feb. 18 because investigators found no evidence that Venit touched Crew’s skin when he allegedly grabbed his genitals, which would have constituted a possible felony.

Crew's case was then referred to the LA city attorney's office. But a spokesman for that office told BuzzFeed News that Crews' case was declined because the incident, which allegedly occurred on Feb. 4, 2016, fell beyond the statute of limitations.

Representatives for Crews and Venit did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
