DALLAS – The man who accused Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice of assaulting him has declined to pursue charges, according to police.

A Dallas police report says the assault happened inside the Lit Kitchen and Lounge on May 6 around 2:30 a.m.

The alleged victim received treatment at a hospital for what the report referred to as non-life-threatening injuries.

A few days after the alleged assault, the owner of Lit Kitchen told CBS News Texas that there were no obvious signs from security video that suggest the accuser was injured or had been assaulted.  

"If I got hit and beat up by somebody I would say, 'call the cops, call an ambulance,'" said owner Reza Dibaje.

Dibaje said he had a pleasant exchange with Rice, who he says was inside the club in the VIP area for less than a half hour and didn't order any alcohol.   

Rice is still facing multiple felony charges for his role in a multi-car wreck on Central Expressway back in March that left several people injured.
