UCLA defensive back Ishmael Adams will not face felony charges for alleged robbery, according to Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney's office.

Adams was arrested in the early morning hours on Aug. 30 on suspicion of using force to take a cellphone from an Uber driver. He was suspended indefinitely by Coach Jim Mora.

Adams was to appear in court Tuesday. Instead the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office referred the case to the city attorney's office for misdemeanor filing consideration.

"We should receive it in the next 24 hours and we will begin due process," Mateljan said.

Mateljan said that the city attorney will "review the facts and do what follow-ups are necessary."

There is no timetable for when a decision will be reached.
