Dodger James Loney won't face charges in Maserati crash


Dodger James Loney, who was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after his Maserati allegedly sideswiped several cars on the 101 Freeway in November, will not be criminally charged, prosecutors said Wednesday.

The Los Angeles city attorney's office announced there was insufficient evidence to bring charges and that all drug tests on Loney came back negative.

The accident took place Nov. 14 about 6:12 p.m. on the 101 just west of the 405 Freeway in Sherman Oaks, said California Highway Patrol spokesman Leland Tang. Loney, 27, was arrested at the scene and then taken to Sherman Oaks Hospital.

A CHP officer who first encountered Loney wrote in his report that the Dodger appeared to have "objective symptoms of being intoxicated or being under the influence of something."
