District attorney's office will not file charges against Lakers forward Matt Barnes

Citing insufficient evidence, the Sacramento district attorney's office announced on Monday that it would not file domestic-abuse charges against Lakers forward Matt Barnes.

Barnes was arrested last month on suspicion of domestic violence after an alleged altercation with his fiancée in suburban Sacramento.

Police officers who responded to a 911 call on Sept. 8 said there was evidence of an altercation, but Barnes' fiancée later disputed the charges.

Barnes signed a two-year deal with the Lakers in July.
