Tom Sizemore won't face felony domestic violence charge

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles prosecutors say Tom Sizemore will not face felony domestic violence charges after his arrest last month.

A charge evaluation worksheet by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office completed Friday stated the woman Sizemore is accused of attacking had minor injuries.

The case has been referred to city prosecutors for a possible misdemeanor filing.

The 54-year-old actor was arrested July 19 on suspicion of felony domestic violence battery. A prosecutor cited Sizemore's previous domestic violence convictions but noted the most recent was seven years old.

Sizemore's arrest came amid a comeback attempt after years of substance abuse problems. He has a recurring role on the USA Network series "Shooter" but his career has fallen from its heyday when he appeared in such films such as "Saving Private Ryan" and "Black Hawk Down."
