According to a report in the Houston Chronicle, Steve Foley, former linebacker for the San Diego Chargers and Houston Texans, has been absolved of blame in a personal injury suit involving a dog attack.


Prosecutors in Texas dismissed the case against Foley after he was indicted on third-degree felony charges three years ago after a pair of pit bulls he owned attacked a female neighbor and her puppy.


The woman, Twana Schulz, was bitten on the face and arms and her dog, a puppy named Schnickers, died, according to the report.


Foley’s dogs were seized by animal control officers and euthanized. Foley was not home when the attack occurred.


According Mark LaForge, assistant district attorney for Fort Bend County, Foley compensated Schulz for her medical costs and “it was her desire to move on from the situation.”


Foley, 34, was in the NFL for nine years. In addition to the Chargers and Texans, he also had a stint with the Cincinnati Bengals.
