SEATTLE (AP) — Former Washington football coach Jim Lambright was arrested last week for investigation of domestic violence, according to Snohomish County court documents released Wednesday.

The 72-year-old was arrested June 18 for allegedly assaulting his 23-year-old granddaughter at his Snohomish home.

The Snohomish County prosecutor's office said Wednesday that Lambright has not been charged.

His granddaughter told sheriff's deputies that Lambright grabbed her by the arms, pulling her to the floor, according to a probable-cause statement. She said he tried to drag her out of the house by her ankle and that Lambright dragged her about 5 feet before she broke free and called 911.

A message left at Lambright's number Wednesday afternoon was not immediately returned.
