ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Investigators in Florida are not charging U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson over a domestic incident with his estranged wife.

Officials with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Orlando said Friday that probable cause didn’t exist to support the allegation by Grayson’s wife that he had pushed her against the front door of their home.

A judge granted Lolita Grayson a restraining order against the Democratic congressman from Orlando earlier this week after she alleged that Grayson pushed her against the front door of their home last Saturday when he stopped by the house.

Grayson’s wife, Lolita, filed for divorce in January. On Wednesday, she asked a judge to enter a default judgment, claiming Grayson had failed to respond to her petition in a timely manner.
