LOS ANGELES (AP) — An investigation into a fight between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean will soon be closed without any charges being sought.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore said investigators will speak with Ocean before closing the case, but the agency is unlikely to pursue a misdemeanor battery charge against Brown.

Ocean has accused Brown of hitting him during an argument outside a West Hollywood recording studio last month, but wrote on the social media site Tumblr on Saturday that he wanted the matter closed.

Ocean’s post stated he did not want Brown prosecuted and he had no intentions of filing a civil lawsuit.

Brown remains on probation for the 2009 beating of Rihanna and is scheduled to appear in court for a progress hearing on Wednesday.
