No charges for arrested Texas Tech football players
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - There will be no charges filed against any of the four Texas Tech football players who were arrested back on March 25.

Police say they witnessed Linebacker Christian Malik-Shakur Taylor smashing the windshield of a car during that incident, but the victim did not want to press charges, so the District Attorney's office has also dropped that charge.
No charges were filed against Quan Shorts or Desmon Smith Williams.
