MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – University of Minnesota running back Shannon Brooks was released from jail Monday and won’t be charged by the city attorney’s office in connection with an alleged assault early Sunday morning.

Brooks, a senior running back, was arrested for domestic assault early Saturday morning at a residence that he shares with a roommate, who isn’t a football player. Minneapolis police responded to the 600 block of 15th Ave. SE on a report of domestic abuse in progress.
