Report: Prosecutor declines to charge Minnesota wrestler

County prosecutors have declined to charge a University of Minnesota wrestler with selling the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax, according to a report Friday on KMSP-TV, the Fox affiliate for Minneapolis-St. Paul.

A spokesperson for the Hennepin County Attorney's Office told KMSP there is, "insufficient evidence at this time."

An investigation by the University of Minnesota Police remains open. J Robinson, head wrestling coach, remains on paid administrative leave as the school continues its investigation.

Last month, the same station broke the story alleging that four Gopher wrestlers had been selling Xanax to fellow students, and that ten student-athletes were using the drug. In subsequent weeks, Robinson's agent, James C.W. Bock, issued a statement on behalf of the long-time mat coach, refuting some of the information that has been in multiple media reports.
