Lil Twist denied battery allegations brought on by a woman claiming she was held against her will during a party at Justin Bieber's mansion over the summer, and authorities now agree.

The Texas rapper will not be charged after police were unable to find sufficient evidence to substantiate the woman's claims, reports TMZ.

Back in August, the accuser filed a police report stating that Twist forcefully grabbed her arm, attempting to keep her at the party once she found out Bieber wasn't actually home. According to TMZ, the police report was supported by such little evidence that prosecutors never even evaluated the case.    

Twist, who lives with the teen crooner, has been blamed for some of Bieber's bad behavior over the year and made news for a couple of his own mishaps. In May he was pulled over for speeding in his roommate's Ferrari and busted for DUI two months later, but vehemently contested the battery claims.

At the time of the incident, a rep for the rapper told BET.com, "Lil Twist was not involved in any battery. He asked the guest of a third party at the home to leave, and security escorted the guest from the premises after the guest became disruptive."
