LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles prosecutors won’t file criminal charges against six University of Southern California students who were arrested after party-noise complaints — arrests that prompted claims of racial profiling.

The city attorney’s office announced Wednesday that there was lack of evidence and “no reasonable” chance of a conviction.

The students were arrested on May 4 after police responded to noise complaints involving two house parties near the campus.

Students and some bystanders alleged that police showed racial bias by making arrests at a party mainly attended by black students but not at a party across the street attended mainly by whites.

Police say they began making arrests after a student threw a bottle.
