Robert Schimmel Domestic Case Rejected by D.A.

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."
