“The circumstances include the conduct of the “victim” leading up to the incident, the interaction between Mr. Tyson and the “victim,” as well as the requests of both the “victim” and Mr. Tyson that no charges be filed in the case,” District Attorney Stephen M. Wagstaffe said. “We now deem this case to be closed.”
The district attorney’s office says it looked at footage taken by other passengers during its investigation, and reviewed incident reports from the San Francisco Police Department and the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. The reports said the “victim” had been drinking and “appeared to be intoxicated,” the district attorney told the Daily News.
The “victim” shared “minimal details of the incident” with the officers who responded to the scene that day, and was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, the San Francisco Police Department said last month. Police confirmed two people were detained.
The “victim’s” name is Melvin Townsend III.
