Tom Arnold's battery claim against Survivor creator Mark Burnett has been shut down by the L.A. City Attorney's office, and now spokesman Frank Mateljan tells RadarOnline.com exclusively prosecutors "declined to file criminal charges due to insufficient evidence."

The bitter battle between the two men started when Arnold, 59, accused Burnett, 58, of possessing tapes featuring President Donald Trump using racist and sexist language, which included the N-word, while filming Trump's former hit show, The Apprentice.

Their war of words turned physical, however, during a pre-Emmy party in September, which resulted in criminal charges against Arnold after the two got into a fight on the red-carpet.

Arnold claimed that he was choked by Burnett and that the brawl was broken up by other celebrities.

Burnett's wife, Roma Downey, blasted Arnold on Twitter, claiming that Arnold started the fight and that she suffered a bruised hand injury, which she shared with her followers.

"Sitting in West LAPD filing charges against your best bud Apprentice Outtakes Mark Burnett who lost his mind, attacked and choked me last nite sic," Arnold tweeted on Sept. 17, while filing the report against Burnett.

The alleged tapes featuring President Trump's remarks have never surfaced and he has adamantly defended himself over the racist accusations.
