Chris Brown and Drake can breathe a sigh of relief.
Neither will face criminal charges or any member of their entourages with any crimes relating to the infamous bottle-flinging brawl that injured several clubgoers on June 14. TMZ reports that law enforcement officials insist there’s simply not enough evidence. There will be no further investigation into the fight by police.
The surveillance video in the W.i.P Club was too dark and blurry to be useful, according to the website, and the interviews conducted by the NYPD were inconclusive. Regarding the development, Drake’s lawyer, Blair Berk, told TMZ: “Drake was never even a suspect, so it’s no surprise.”
Drake was not injured in the brawl but Brown suffered lacerations to his face, which he posted photos of on Twitter. San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker, several bodyguards and random clubgoers were also hurt in the melee.
Although Drake and Brown were clear of any criminal charges, the two still face civil suits. W.i.P nightclub filed a $16 million lawsuit against the two. The club alleges the two stars overran their security when they encouraged their bodyguards and entourages to join in their fight, which was allegedly over Rihanna.
Parker has separately sued W.i.P for $20 million in damages, claiming his eye was injured as a result of the incident.
