United States Capitol Police told The Hill on Friday that it won't pursue the case against Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) regarding his confrontation with a reporter this week.  

"Consistent with our law enforcement responsibilities, we looked into the event, determined there isn't a complainant and have closed the matter," Capitol Police spokesman Shennell Antrobus told The Hill.

The decision comes a day after Fox News reported that the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia was considering pressing charges against Grimm for threatening a reporter at the Capitol on Tuesday after the State of the Union.
