OXNARD, Calif. -

The Ventura County District Attorney will not be filing misdemeanor battery charges against Oxnard Mayor Tim Flynn.

In early March, Flynn was accused of battery by a female student at Pacifica High School in Oxnard where he teaches.

Investigators said the student was wearing headphones and disrupted Flynn's class during a quiz.  When Flynn took the student's backpack outside he said she used profane language to get it back. That's when the student described the alleged battery as just a tap.

Witnesses sided with Flynn's recollection of what happened.
