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.
