No charges will be filed against Tim Joslin, president and chief executive officer of Community Medical Centers, who was accused of allegedly hitting his girlfriend on the back of the head with an iPhone.

Clovis police arrested Joslin for felony domestic violence after the Aug. 24 incident in his home. Fresno County Superior Court records say he was released from jail after posting $25,000 bail.

The Fresno County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday it would not file charges due to “insufficient evidence,” said Stephen Wright, assistant district attorney.

The investigation by the office’s domestic violence unit determined there was no evidence that Joslin “altered, deleted or manipulated recorded video surveillance,” Wright said, as had been originally alleged.

He did not comment on whether additional video surveillance existed.

A police report said Joslin may have deleted a portion of surveillance video. Joslin denied deleting any video from a hard drive.

The woman’s lawyer, Jacob Rivas, said his client suffered a head injury and sought medical treatment for a concussion. Joslin’s laywer, Jeff Hammerschmidt, said the woman suffered no major injuries.

The woman, 41, and Joslin, 55, had been in a relationship for about 2 1/2 years. She was not identified because she was an alleged victim of domestic violence.
