The Hollywood Reporter:
Los Angeles prosecutors say they will not charge Russell Crowe with battery over a scuffle with rapper Azealia Banks in a Beverly Hills hotel room earlier this year.
A charge evaluation worksheet released Wednesday by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office states Crowe struggled with Banks and threw her out of his hotel room in October after she picked up a glass and threatened people with it. They rejected filing a battery charge against the actor due to Banks’ actions and her lack of visible injuries.
The filing states a prosecutor determined that a jury would likely “find the physical escort out of the room was justified to prevent the imminent violence threatened by Banks.”
