Prosecutors won't file charges against a cast member of MTV's "Jersey Shore" who had been accused of punching another woman at a South Beach nightclub.

Prosecutors in Miami-Dade County said Wednesday they won't charge Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola after another woman claimed she was punched in the face May 8.

Prosecutors say a case of battery may have occurred but it's not their policy to file misdemeanor charges against those no longer in the county. Giancola has since returned to New York.

Prosecutors said the case, though now closed, could be reopened if Giancola returns to the Miami-area.

Giancola's attorney, James Leonard Jr., says his client doesn't plan on returning to Florida. He calls the accusation "a feeble attempt to get publicity."
