State attorney: No sexual assault charges for Michael Irvin

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Prosecutors say there is insufficient evidence to file sexual assault charges against NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin.

A 27-year-old woman accused Irvin of drugging and sexually assaulting her at the W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale in March. Irvin, 51, denied the allegations.

Broward State Attorney's officials said in an email that there was insufficient evidence to file charges, adding that they would have had a difficult time getting a conviction.

Irvin's lawyer Ken Padowitz has called a 2 p.m. ET news conference in Fort Lauderdale to discuss the case.

No further details were immediately available.
