(TSX / STATS) -- New York Jets teammates Darron Lee and Leonard Williams will not face discipline from the NFL for an incident that occurred at a music festival in June.

"Following a review, we concluded there was insufficient evidence to support a finding that there was a violation of the personal conduct policy," league spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement Monday.

Video appeared to show Lee getting into an argument with his girlfriend before he was restrained and forcibly removed by Williams, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound defensive lineman. No arrests were made in the incident, which occurred at Governors Ball Music Festival in New York on June 3.

Lee, who was the 20th overall pick in 2016, recorded 73 tackles in 13 games as a rookie linebacker last season.

Williams was the sixth overall pick in the 2015 draft. The former University of Southern California standout totaled 68 tackles and seven sacks last season.
