Officials at the Los Angeles City Attorney's office have reportedly dismissed the assault case filed by the 'Maximum Impact' actor against the TV executive because of 'insufficient evidence.'

AceShowbiz - TV executive Mark Burnett will not be prosecuted over allegations he attacked actor Tom Arnold at a party in California last month.

The "True Lies" star accused the chairman of MGM Television of attacking and choking him at the Evening Before Emmys party in Los Angeles, claiming Burnett went "apes**t" and then "ran away with his torn Pink shirt and missing gold chain."

The 59 year old filed a police report after the alleged attack and in an interview with TMZ, he claimed Burnett acted "like a psycho."

However, according to the news outlet, officials at the Los Angeles City Attorney's office have rejected the battery claim due to "insufficient evidence".

Sources have told TMZ's editors multiple witnesses came forward with different accounts of what had happened during the alleged altercation. The sources also claimed investigators were told Arnold started the fight.

Tom and Mark have been feuding over Arnold's Viceland show, "The Hunt for the Trump Tapes", which premiered last month. The actor has been accusing Burnett, a producer of "The Apprentice" and its celebrity spin-off, of protecting U.S. leader President Donald Trump, the former host of the reality shows, by refusing to release outtakes from them.

Tom alleges President Trump uses racial slurs and makes other disturbing comments on the tapes.

Arnold and Burnett have yet to comment on the new reports.
