LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kanye West will not face criminal charges over an incident in which he apparently punched a man in a Beverly Hills chiropractor's office.

Los Angeles County prosecutors declined to file charges against the rapper because he had reached a civil settlement with the man and there were no significant injuries documented after the altercation.

A document rejecting a battery case says the 18-year-old man had used a racial slur in an argument with West's fiancee Kim Kardashian on Jan. 13.

West was not arrested, and his attorney Blair Berk declined to comment on the prosecutor's decision.

The prosecutor's charge evaluation sheet says there were conflicting witness accounts about how many times West punched the man, but it noted that he wasn't seriously injured.
