SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Former three-time boxing champion Wilfredo Gomez will not face any charges after police detained him Saturday while investigating allegations of domestic violence, authorities said.

Police said prosecutor Linette Velazquez ordered them to not file any charges against Gomez after finding there was no cause for arrest based on what his partner later told officials.

Gomez had been detained at a home in the capital of San Juan.

He has held the World Boxing Council super-bantamweight and featherweight titles and the world junior lightweight crown.

He has had previous run-ins with police, including a 1994 arrest on charges of domestic violence and buying cocaine.
