LAWRENCE, Mass.—Lawrence police have determined that there is no evidence to support Mayor William Lantigua's (lan-TEE'-gwahz) claim that someone tried to run him down in a car in front of city hall last month.

Chief John Romero said Tuesday no charges will be filed as a result of the March 30 incident and the case is closed.

The Eagle-Tribune says the investigation report was delivered to Lantigua's office on Tuesday.

Lantigua did not respond to the newspaper's requests for comment.

Lantigua told police two white men in a car were watching him and an aide and taking pictures. The car then sped away, nearly striking Lantigua. He reported the incident a day later.

Witnesses told police say they saw the car, but did not see it try to run down the mayor.
