After allegedly slapping a woman in an Atlanta nightclub last month, Young Thug has reportedly been cleared of battery charges due to a lack of evidence.

According to TMZ, the case against Thug was presented to the judge in hopes of securing a warrant and charging the rapper with battery. Due to insufficient evidence, the case was reportedly thrown out.

Last month, Thug's fiancée was involved in a skirmish with another woman in the parking lot of Palace nightclub, when Thugger allegedly stepped in and slapped her in the face. 

Young Thug dodged another case last week when he was cleared of felony drug and gun charges connected to a 2015 raid on his house in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Thug was able to evade charges after his lawyers proved that cops entered his home without a proper search warrant. 

He was originally slapped with a handful of charges, including felony cocaine possession, felony marijuana possession and three counts of felony gun possession. The marijuana charges were previously dropped.

Young Thug's rep offered no comment.
