According to the Los Angeles Times, the misdemeanor battery case against singer Chris Brown will close soon. Singer Frank Ocean, the alleged victim, posted on social media that he didn't want to press charges against Brown. The Sherriff's Department said, "The alleged victim does not want to move forward, so we are not going to move forward." Officials plan to close the case without any charges and keep it on file.
