The Associated Press reports that no charges will be pursued against UW center Artem Wallace in connection with his will May 6 arrest for involvement in a hit-and-run incident in West Seattle's Alki neighborhood.
Seattle police have decided to pursue hit-and-run and negligent driving charges only against the driver of the vehicle in which Wallace was a passenger.
Coach Lorenzo Romar may still have his own discipline against Wallace, however, it now seems likely that 6-foot-8, 240-pound junior will remain a member of a team and a key part of the solution in filling the hole left by Spencer Hawes' departure to the NBA.
Last season Wallace started seven of 31 games and averaged 2.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 11.3 minutes. He seemed to come on especially toward the end of the year, when he became a powerful compliment to Jon Brockman along the Huskies' front line and started showing more offensive skill around the basket.
