Drake will not face arrest for his involvement in an alleged nightclub brawl with Chris Brown, according to reports.

A report had been circulated that the rapper would be arrested for reckless endangerment after a scuffle between him and Brown in a New York club earlier this week (June 13) supposedly led to several bystanders being injured, but according to TMZ, law enforcement agencies have insisted they have "no suspects, complaints or arrest warrants at this time".

It has previously been claimed that the fight began after Brown sent a bottle over to Drake's table. The Toronto rapper then approached Brown and started arguing over Rihanna, Brown's ex-girlfriend who Drake also had a short relationship with.

Mark Geragos, Chris Brown's attorney, has claimed that he has evidence that Drake threw a bottle during the incident, while Brown posted a picture of his gashed chin on Twitter after the fracas along with a tirade of messages directed at Drake's crew – although they have since been removed.

Drake, however, has denied his involvement in the fight, and said he was heading for the exits when the brawl broke out. A spokesman for the rapper said: "Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.I.P. He was on his way out when the altercation began."
