According to a report by the Wisconsin State Journal’s Ed Treleven on Thursday, criminal charges will not be filed against Wisconsin sophomore wide receiver Danny Davis III stemming from a criminal complaint back in August.

The second-year player was mentioned in the same complaint from an April 22 incident as junior wide receiver Quintez Cephus. Wisconsin then suspended Davis for the first two games of the 2018 season. Cephus faces two felony sexual assault charges and is expected to go to trial proceedings after this past Monday’s preliminary hearing.

As Treleven noted, the complaint declared that Davis took photos of and laughed at one of the two women.

Treleven reported that Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne “said without elaboration that Davis will not be charged with a crime,” and that the wide receiver’s lawyer “declined to comment.”

Davis appeared back on Wisconsin’s depth chart earlier this week and is available to play Saturday against BYU (2:30 p.m. CT, ABC).
