Robert Schimmel Domestic Case Rejected by D.A.

5/21/2009 4:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Comedian Robert Schimmel was busted for allegedly getting into a physical altercation with his wife earlier this month -- but the case has been rejected by the Los Angeles County D.A.

In the document filed by the D.A., it says there was insufficient evidence to move forward with the case and Schimmel's wife, Melissa, "indicated she did not want charges filed."

The one thing Melissa did file: divorce papers five days after the alleged incident.

UPDATE: A rep for Schimmel tells TMZ, "We are very gratified the DA reviewed the case and determined that the filing of criminal charges is not warranted."

Only marry foreign women    

Domestic violence: 1) When a man's physical, sexual, emotional, economic, or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence a female family member or friend; 2) Whatever the man does that the woman doesn't like; 3) a wife's false accusation before or during a divorce to obtain an Order of Protection that will legally separate the husband from his children, home, and personal possessions.

When a husband learns his wife is having an affair or spending too much money, then demands that she stop is seen as abuse, therefore, it is considered domestic violence.

I'm glad to see the charges were dropped,if anything she should have been charged judging from his mugshot with all the bandaids on him.To think he paid for the nails that did that to him! It doesn't matter in California if the "victim" wants to press to press charges or not in domestic violence cases,they had no case.
As for Melissa wanting a divorce,I'm sure he wants one too and I hope he gets custody of their sons.He needs her like a sore a**hole

WOW....Well, all I can say about this is that he seems to have a very unique, and hilarious perspective on life, as well as his own PERSONAL situations. Just watch one of his shows.....He is soo freakin'adorable, what's NOT to like. Apparently this case holds no water. Like he doesn't have enough to deal with already?? He is currently fighting Lymphoma for the SECOND time. Sad that his wife would keep his children from seeing him with all he's going through health-wise. To sum it all up, Karma is a B**CH, so pick your battles wisely...... ☺
