DENVER, Colo. - A coach seen on video forcing cheerleaders to do splits while they cried out in pain won't face criminal charges.

The video first surfaced in August.

Prosecutors in Denver say that coach, Ozell Williams, won't be charged.

They say while they don't condone the behavior, it doesn't warrant a criminal act.

Williams was fired from the high school where he worked after the video surfaced.
