According to reports, Kanye West won't face violence charges after allegedly hitting a fan during an incident in Los Angeles earlier this year.

A fan apparently approached the rapper for his autograph, which led to an argument that grew physical.

 According to Fox News, Mike Feuer, the LA City Attorney, issued a statement addressing the incident.

In a January report, the alleged victim identified West as the culprit and filed a battery report.

 West's attorney also spoke about the outcome of the investigation and said, that the rapper"made every effort" to extricate himself from the alleged victim, "whose behavior became that of an aggressive stalker"

 In the recent incident, had the rapper been found guilty, West could have faced a maximum six-month jail sentence if convicted of misdemeanour battery.

The alleged assault allegedly happened while the West and his ex-girlfriend Julia Fox were supposedly in Los Angeles.

 Kanye previously entered a no contest plea to misdemeanour violence in 2013 during an altercation with a paparazzi at the Los Angeles International Airport.

He was given a two-year probationary period, 250 hours of community service, and anger management counselling.

West could have received a maximum six-month jail sentence if found guilty of misdemeanour violence in the recent incident.
