The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office has decided not to file any charges in connection with the August 28th nightclub brawl involving Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis and Playboy Playmate Jayde Nicole.

The D.A.'s office says as far as it's concerned the case is closed, and it will not take any legal action against Francis, Nicole, or her boyfriend Brody Jenner, who was at Guys And Dolls at the time of the incident.

In the course of its investigation, the D.A. did a report called the"charge evaluation worksheet", and according to that paperwork obtained by RadarOnline.com, in making its decision, the D.A.'s office stated that Jayde Nicole (last name Gelette) poured a drink on Francis and that he responded by pulling Gelette's hair from the back and pulling her

down.

Furthermore, the D.A.'s office goes on to say that surveillance video provided by the nightclub indicates that "Gelette appears to have acted without immediate provocation in her  assault upon suspect/victim Francis,"  meaning there was no clear reason for her to pour a drink on the Girls Gone Wild founder.

The report concludes with "the interests of justice do not support the filing of criminal charges".

Francis and Nicole Jayde have each filed civil suits against each other and those cases have yet to be resolved.
