A spokesman for Denver District Attorney Beth McCann says there was not enough evidence to file and prove criminal charges. Spokesman Ken Lane says McCann told the journalist, Susan Greene, about the decision on Thursday.
Greene, editor of The Colorado Independent, reported on July 5 that she took the photos from a public sidewalk. Greene said an officer told her to stop, then handcuffed her and put her inside a patrol car.
Denver's police department opened an internal investigation. The department on Thursday did not immediately return a message seeking an update on that review.
