Just when you thought this story had officially died, the prosecutor for the city of Omaha has brought it back to life. Today, he decided that the city of Omaha will not press charges against fans that are accused of threatening referee John Higgins. Higgins was the subject of massive scrutiny following the Kentucky-North Carolina game. There is no need for me to go into more specifics on what happened, because all of us secretly want to forget that day. Those accused are not completely out of the water yet though. The prosecutor has contacted law enforcement officials about seven individuals and has notified the Federal Communications Commission of two media outlets that ran montages that displayed Higgins' contact information. The prosecutor said that, "any criminal charges would be best served by deferring to authorities in the appropriate jurisdictions." The names of both the media outlets and the seven individuals have yet to be released. When the Associated Press reached Higgins, he said that he has no comment and appreciates the work that law enforcement did on the case.
