Los Angeles County prosecutors did not file charges against the rapper because he had reached a civil settlement with the man and there were no significant injuries recorded.

A document rejecting a battery case says the 18-year-old man had used a racial slur in an argument with West's fiancee Kim Kardashian on January 13.

West was not arrested and his lawyer Blair Berk declined to comment on the prosecutors' decision.

The prosecutors' charge evaluation sheet says there were conflicting witness accounts about how many times West punched the man, but it noted that he was not seriously injured.
