According to XXL, the domestic violence case against Roddy Ricch has been dismissed.

On Wednesday (Jan. 15), the outlet confirmed that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office declined the case against Roddy, due to insufficient evidence.

Back in August, the rapper was arrested after an argument with his girlfriend at his Los Angeles home allegedly became physical. Roddy was booked for misdemeanor battery on a spouse or girlfriend and released on a $50,000 bond.

At the time, few details about the incident were released and Roddy did not publicly address his arrest. He was never indicted for any charges and neither he nor his girlfriend required any medical attention at the scene of the alleged altercation.

Earlier this week, Roddy’s debut album made charting history. Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial became the first rap album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 15 years. The record’s success is lead by hit single “The Box,” which currently sits at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“I ain’t follow nobody path. I did it my own way. It’s just grindin’, ya feel me? You just gotta grind,” he previously explained to XXL about his success. “When I drop, they gon’ know what’s up. This my coming-out season.”

Roddy even joked with Justin Bieber on Twitter, whose latest single “Yummy” fell short at No. 2.

“Stream yummy by justin bieber,” Roddy tweeted on Jan. 11.

Bieber addressed their competitive race to No. 1, writing, “Roddy Ricch You had to go and make a banger smh! Haha ur the man!!”

“Love the song!! congrats on your first #1!!” Bieber tweeted. “Everyone go stream #thebox.”

Besides Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, Roddy also enjoyed success last year for his Mustard-featuring single “Ballin” and collaboration with Nipsey Hussle and Hit-Boy, “Racks in the Middle.” The two songs clenched the up-and-comer three Grammy nominations, including Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song and Best Rap/ Sung Performance.
