Terry Crews has hit a roadblock in sexual assault case against WME agent Adam Venit, E News reports.

According to court documents obtained by the site, it has been confirmed that Crews’ sexual assault complaint against Venit has been rejected by the Los Angeles City Attorney and Los Angeles County D.A.

This was because Venit did not make contact with Crews’ skin, and that there was no restraint involved. Court documents state, “given that the suspect did not make contact with the victim's skin when he grabbed the victim's genitals and there is no restraint involved, a felony filing is declined,” according to E News.

On the other hand, the LA City Attorney had to reject the case due to the statute of limitations. The statute for a misdemeanor is one year, with the incident happening in February 2016.

According to Variety website, Crews reported the incident to the LA Police Department on 8 November last year, alleging that Venit had grabbed his crotch at an industry party. Police then investigated and forwarded the complaint to the L.A County District Attorney’s office on 6 February.

The actor has been through a tough few months, claiming that his family had been tracked and bugged in retaliation to the suit. News of the rejection also comes after Crews took a seven hour long psychiatric examination.
