Former University of Miami and Dallas Cowboys star Michael Irvin has been cleared of a possible sexual assault charge.

I have exclusively learned that the Broward County State Attorney's Office had a lack of evidence against Irvin.

Prosecutors found no likelihood of a conviction against the Hall of Famer. 

Alcohol and several drugs, including cocaine, were found in the alleged victim's system. Prosecutors could not prove that Irvin gave her any of the drugs. 

Irvin strongly denied any wrongdoing during an alleged incident in March at a Fort Lauderdale Hotel.
