It looks as though the man who accused Chris Brown of beating him up during a Las Vegas basketball game has had a change of heart. According to the New York Daily News, the misdemeanor-battery case against Brown was dropped after the accuser decided against pressing charges.

Allegedly, Brown and the accuser were playing in a basketball game in his luxury suite at the Palms Casino Resort on Monday when Brown punched the accuser after a dispute. According to police, the victim was taken to the hospital, treated for his injuries and released.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police issued a statement saying that the accuser "no longer wants to go forward with criminal charges," adding, "This case will not be pursued any further."

If Brown had been charged, he could have faced a fine of up to $1,000.
