Los Angeles County prosecutors have opted not to file criminal charges against former Commerce Secretary John Bryson, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Bryson stepped down on June 21 after taking a short medical leave of absence following several traffic accidents he said were the result of a seizure he suffered. He was found unconcious in his car. 
Los Angeles County prosecutors considered evidence presented by the San Gabriel police before declining to file felony hit-and-run charges, AP said.
