Police in Coral Springs, Florida, are no longer investigating Jason Pierre-Paul after determining that the fireworks incident involving the Giants defensive end did not take place in their jurisdiction.
Brad McKeon, a public information officer for the Coral Springs Police Department, told multiple media outlets that police confirmed through Pierre-Paul's representatives that the incident occurred outside the department's jurisdiction.
McKeon told NJ.com earlier Tuesday that Pierre-Paul could face a criminal fireworks possession charge.
Although Coral Springs police will not pursue an investigation, Pierre-Paul still could face legal trouble from another jurisdiction in Florida, where fireworks other than those in the sparklers category are illegal without a permit.
McKeon told NJ.com that Coral Springs police had been trying to determine exactly what type of fireworks Pierre-Paul suffered the injury from.
Pierre-Paul suffered injuries to both of his hands, including severe burns and possible nerve damage, sources told ESPN on Sunday. Although the injuries are not believed to be career-threatening, Giants officials traveled to Florida to visit Pierre-Paul in the hospital and still are trying to determine a prognosis, according to sources.
Team officials still were not able to visit Pierre-Paul as of Tuesday afternoon but are waiting patiently and hope that the two-time Pro Bowler is OK, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The injuries stemming from the incident could affect Pierre-Paul's future with the Giants after the pass-rusher enjoyed one of his best seasons as a pro in 2014. The Giants used the franchise tag on the two-time Pro Bowler, but he is not under contract since he has not signed his $14.8 million tender.
There is concern that Pierre-Paul's hand injury could force him to miss training camp and the start of the regular season, one team source told ESPN on Monday, but the Giants are still awaiting more medical answers.
