The Orange County, Fla. Sheriff’s Office said Friday that Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) will not be arrested in connection to his estranged wife’s accusations of domestic violence, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

Earlier this week, a Florida judge granted Grayson’s wife, Lolita Carson-Grayson, custody of the couple’s children, and barred contact by her husband, following an incident where Carson-Grayson said her husband pushed her against a door. Grayson has since repeatedly denied striking his wife, and his lawyers on Wednesday released a video of the incident that they said proved that Carson-Grayson had been the one who committed a physical attack outside the couple’s Orlando home on Saturday.

According to the Sentinel, the sheriff’s office interviewed Grayson, Carson-Grayson, and others before determining that there was not enough evidence to arrest the congressman. Nevertheless, the Sentinel reported, Grayson was served with a domestic violence injunction on Friday.

Carson-Grayson recently filed for divorce from Grayson. The couple has been married for more than two decades.
