Kanye West

D.A. Declines Prosecution

Kanye West will NOT be prosecuted for beating up a guy in the waiting room of a Beverely Hills chiropractor ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. County D.A. has REJECTED the case.  As for why ... the D.A. gave several reasons:

-- A civil compromise has been reached.  TMZ broke the story, Kanye agreed to pay more than $250,000 to the 18-year-old. 

-- The victim was not hurt.  The D.A. says "No significant injuries were documented."

-- The victim became uncooperative after the civil compromise, and would not speak with prosecutors.

The conclusion of the D.A. ... "Prosecution is accordingly declined due to Victim unavailability."

One interesting thing -- in the rejection, the D.A. notes Kim and Kanye both alleged the 18-year-old used a racial epithet.

The fakest thing ever. It enrages me that county resources were misused in such a way. I'm disgusted with the entitlement so many celebrities display.

This was a PR stunt to gain sympathy. That 250K wasn't a settlement, it was an agreed upon fee for services rendered.

I hope lawyer for kid takes most of the $250,000. Although Kanye was wrong, kid also need to be taught a serious lesson, he can be a racist if thats his choice, but he shouldnt be rewarded for it. Now hes laughing all the way to the bank- and he was'nt even hurt.

Maybe this is a dumb question but isn't offering someone a settlement about the same thing as tampering with a witness or buying them off??
