"On July 1, my client Eric Wright was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles and was arrested for suspicion of DUI," the statement reads. "Today, I am pleased to announce that the Los Angeles County District Attorney has reviewed the facts and decided not to file any charges. Therefore, no charges at all will be filed against Eric. Eric is glad this is behind him and is eager to begin training camp at the end of the month."

Wright was arrested on suspicion of DUI when he rear-ended a vehicle, causing injury to the other driver. Wright admitted he had been drinking but refused to submit to a breathalyzer or field-sobriety test. He was taken to jail and later released on $10,000 bond.

Wright had been scheduled to appear in court July 23.

Wright is entering his first season with the Buccaneers. He signed a five-year, $38 million deal as a free agent this offseason.
