Russell Crowe won't be charged over Azealia Banks scuffle

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles prosecutors say they will not charge Russell Crowe with battery over a hotel room scuffle with rapper Azealia Banks.

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.

Banks accused Crowe of grabbing her by the neck, calling her a racial slur and spitting on her during an Oct. 15 gathering at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

An after-hours call to a London representative for Banks was not immediately returned.

The decision was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
