UCLA redshirt junior cornerback Ishmael Adams will not face felony charges following his arrest for allegedly attempting to steal from an Uber driver last month.

County prosecutors did not find enough evidence to file felony charges and passed the case to city prosecutors to evaluate potential misdemeanor charges, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.

Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office, said city prosecutors have not yet received the case, and does not know when they will make a decision. City prosecutors will decide whether to charge Adams with misdemeanor charges.

University police arrested Adams for allegedly stealing an Uber driver’s cell phone on campus on Aug. 31. He was released two days later on $100,000 bail.

Adams, a starter for the past two seasons, was suspended indefinitely from the team. He was arrested about a week before UCLA’s season opener on Sept.5 against Virginia.
