DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, will not face charges following allegations that he punched a person outside a nightclub in downtown Los Angeles.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles City Attorney's office said "after a thorough and careful review of all the evidence, our office is declining to file based on no reasonable likelihood of conviction."
