Pittsburgh Steelers' center Maurkice Pouncey and twin brother Mike were involved in an altercation at a Miami nightclub in July where patrons accused the brothers of assault and battery.

Those involved hired personal injury attorneys and the proceedings involved civil lawsuits against the Pouncey twins over the allegations.

As reported by Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the following statement was released by Jeff Ostrow, Pouncey's attorney, saying there will be no charges filed against the Steelers' Pro Bowl center over the incident.

"As expected, the Miami-Dade Office of the State Attorney has determined that the Pouncey brothers should not be charged in connection with an altercation that occurred at the Cameo Nightclub on July 12, 2014. This confirms that the previous claim that the brothers were involved was false and fabricated by individuals seeking notoriety and monetary gain."

The Pittsburgh Steelers organization can now move on from this incident and focus on football as they rewarded Maurkice Pouncey with a 6-year contract extension worth $45.49 million in June of this year.
