The Los Angeles District Attorney has decided not to pursue charges against Brad Garrett for his brush with the paparazzi last month.

According to documents, the D.A. felt the photog in question "attempted to provoke a violent reaction from [Garrett] ... by using hostile and derogatory language."

While they admit there was contact between Garrett and the photog during the November 11 incident in West Hollywood, the D.A. deemed it minimal and said "the interests of justice do not support the filing of criminal charges.
