U.S. Capitol Police will not be pursuing charges related to an incident between Rep. Michael Grimm, R-.N.Y., and NY1 reporter Michael Scotto on Tuesday night.

"Consistent with our law enforcement responsibilities, we looked into the event, determined there isn't a complainant and have closed the matter," Capitol Police spokeswoman Sergeant Kimberly Schneider told NBC News in a statement.

Grimm was caught on camera threatening to throw Scotto off a balcony after objecting to a question about his campaign finances.

Grimm did not attend the ongoing House Republican retreat in Cambridge, MD, according to members and aides who attended.
