Chris Brown can breathe a big, prison-free sigh of relief.

After allegedly attacking Frank Ocean outside of a recording studio over a parking space, Frank began the process of filing assault charges against him. However, Frank has since had a change of heart and said he will not be pressing charges against Chris.

In an open post on his website, Frank explained why he made this decision. "As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man. But as a man I am not a killer," he wrote. "I’ll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace.”

The news will likely be welcomed by Breezy, who was accused by more than one witness of throwing the first punch in the altercation, according to TMZ. If he were convicted, an assault charge would have been a direct violation of his five-year probation for assaulting Rihanna, which commenced in August 2009.
The next time they see each other will be this Sunday at the Grammys, where they are both up for nomination in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category.
