Don Johnson Cleared in Documents Case

BERLIN (AP) - Former ``Nash Bridges'' star Don Johnson faces no action by German authorities over documents found in his car that listed transactions totaling $8 billion, but were found to belong to someone else, a customs official said.

``An examination has shown that no offense was committed from a German point of view,'' Leonhard Biel, a spokesman for German customs investigators, said Wednesday.

Johnson, 53, also starred in the 1980s ``Miami Vice'' television series. His films include 1996's ``Tin Cup'' with Kevin Costner.

His car was stopped for a routine check as he entered Germany from Switzerland last November with two other men. Officials photocopied the documents, but they did not seize them and allowed Johnson to continue his journey without formally questioning him.

Johnson has said the bank statements weren't his and has strongly denied any wrongdoing.

Investigators determined that the documents belonged to another person who had remained in Switzerland, Biel said. He declined to identify the owner.

German authorities never launched a formal investigation and now consider the matter closed, he said. U.S. authorities have been informed of the listed transactions in view of the sums involved.
