FORMER AFL  SUPER-AGENT Ricky Nixon will not be charged with sex or drugs offences, according to reports in Australia today.

The man who drove the recruitment of young Irish GAA stars found himself at the centre of a major controversy when footage aired of him in his underwear in the hotel room of a 17-year-old girl.

The teenager had previously admitted concocting claims that she was pregnant to a St Kilda footballer as well as posting nude pictures of players online.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that there will be no police charges against Nixon however.

“Police have concluded the investigation and will not be laying charges in relation to the matter,” a spokeswoman said. “As this is no longer a police investigation, no further comment will be provided.”
