J.R. Smith No Charges In Alleged Pizza Shop Attack

Breaking News

0122-jr-smith-tmz-01Cleveland Cavs star J.R. Smith is officially off the hook in an alleged pizza joint attack -- with prosecutors saying he will NOT be charged with a crime for allegedly attacking a heckler. 

J.R. was named in a police report filed by a 19-year-old man back in Nov. -- in which he claimed Smith choked him outside of a NYC pizza joint after he heckled the guy about being traded from the Knicks. 

Smith had denied any wrongdoing from the very beginning -- and now it seems he's in the clear, with the District Attorney reportedly refusing to move forward with a case against the NBA star.  

A spokesperson for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office tells TMZ Sports, "After a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding this case, we have concluded that the evidence does not support criminal charges against Mr. Smith."

Smith's attorney Alex Spiro told Cleveland.com's Chris Haynes, "We are thankful there was not a rush to judgment and the truth came out."
