Authorities in Las Vegas say Chris Brown won't be charged with a crime based on a woman's complaint about a New Year's weekend altercation in a casino resort hotel room.

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said Monday (Jan. 25) that he met Wednesday with detectives who investigated the Jan. 2 complaint, and they decided there wasn't enough evidence to seek misdemeanor battery and theft charges.

Police Officer Laura Meltzer characterized the case as suspended.

Police had said the woman complained that Brown hit her and took her cell phone when she tried to snap his photo during a private party in a room at the Palms Casino Resort.

Brown's publicist, Nicole Perna, didn't immediately respond to messages. She had called the woman's account "unequivocally untrue" and a fabrication.
