SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Columbia Police Department announced Thursday that the investigation into an altercation involving Mizzou football player Dorial Green-Beckham has been closed.

There have been no arrests; however, Green-Beckham remains suspended from the football team as it continues to prepare for the black and gold game Saturday April 19.

Columbia police released the full report to the media Thursday.

Police say that Green-Beckham pushed open an apartment door at 2:30 Sunday morning, entered and then pushed a female in that apartment down four stairs.

He then left the apartment with his girlfriend.

The person who was injured decided not to press charges because she was afraid of media and community backlash since Green-Beckham is a Mizzou football player.

The Hillcrest product was arrested in Springfield in January and that case is still being investigated as police await lab results.

Green-Beckham will be a junior this season; he led the Tigers with 12 touchdown catches in 20-13.

The Springfield Cardinals opened up a six-game Texas league road trip Thursday night in San Antonio, and the road can't be any worse than home for the Cardinals.

Springfield is one-and-five on their season opening homestand.

The one victory came against these Missions and pitcher Josh Geer.

And the Missions won the Texas league last year and raised the championship flag.

San Antonio defense in the second, Austin Hedges the catcher with the snap throw to first and cuts down Jonathan Rodriguez.

Then Cody Stanley flares this to right, but Rymer Liriano is there for the catch to end the Springfield threat.

The Cardinals would break the ice in the fourth, Rodriguez makes up for getting caught at first with this shot down the right field line, a double that scores Aleed-Mees Diaz and it's 1-nothing.

James Ramsey belted a three-run homer, but it was 4-4 in the tenth.

High school baseball was Thursday afternoon with Parkview hosting Nixa.

And top of the first, wind blowing out at Parkview, the Eagles Grayston Scott rips this deep to left, a three run homer, Nixa takes a 4-0 lead.

Same inning Eagles Dustin Sipes up to bat, he singles up the middle, Tristan Riden-Hour scores, Nixa up 6-0.
Nixa goes onto win 17-one.
