0528_russel_hantz_EX_getty"Survivor" fan favorite Russell Hantz -- who just won $100k on the show -- just scored a major legal victory ... he's officially off the hook for allegedly attacking someone at a street festival last month.

TMZ has learned the District Attorney in Lafayette, LA has decided not to file criminal charges against the reality star -- and we're told the decision was made at "the victim's request."

As TMZ first reported, Hantz was thrown in jail for allegedly shoving" someone to the floor at the festival.

Russell brought this show to a whole new level, a level that is so close to hell, it almost ruined the show.He's such a pig and I hope we never have to see his nasty face on tv again.

He should be in the next Hobbit film. He wouldn't need any makeup.

This imitation of human life will no doubt find its way back in front of a judge many times - now that it feels its famous for being bad - "it" will be worse than ever and have people picking fights. May it find peace in prison.

Russell may be dominating Survivor, but the real king of the game is the Jury. Russell can never be the king of the game unless the jury agrees with him.

32. Russell is flat out awesome.

He is, by far, the best Survivor player ever.

He is the "Babe Ruth" of Survivor.

I never watched the show until he came on, then it was worth watching.

The only reason he didn't win was because of shallow minded people who were unable to get past their own bruised egos and respect play that bordered on pure genius.

KEEP ON ROCKIN' RUSSELL! YOU TOTALLY KICK @$$ BUDDY!!! :-D What I don't get is why the HLEL SOMEONE in Hollywood hasn't snatched him up already! He's incredible!

P.S. (((THANK YOU))) TMZ for the Russell update!

Us true Russell Hantz fans appreciate that. Keep up the good work!

Geez Russell..(I mean "Tony")....that is an awful lot of love for Russell. Russell would say, "If Russell Hantz wanted you to fall in love with Russell Hantz, I would tell you to fall in love with Russell Hantz and bam, your in in love with Russell Hantz. You're either with me or you're against me. If you're against me, you're gone. I'm Russell Hantz."

this little man is scary,he just gives off bad vibes, I think your previous comments are right, he's like a second coming of charles manson, the type of person you love to see losing at everything he does, because he's such a little "icky" "creepy" "nasty" small individual, please don't have him on any more survior programs, if you do then I will stop watching one of my favourite shows.
