“Rhythm of the Night” singer El DeBarge is in the clear after he was arrested for drug possession this week — because the L.A. County D.A. has declined to file charges.
According to official D.A. documents, the case was rejected due to insufficient evidence.
TMZ broke the story … DeBarge was arrested on Tuesday for felony possession of narcotics with intent to sell — the singer’s third drug arrest since 2001.
According to the docs, police officers noticed DeBarge and another man speaking on the street — and for some reason, decided to search them … without giving a reason why.
After searching them and coming up with nothing — cops claim they perused the surrounding area … and found a baggie of rock cocaine hidden under a nearby car.
The other man insisted he was there to buy the rock from DeBarge — but DeBarge denied the accusation … and the D.A. decided there wasn’t enough evidence to make the charge stick.
These rappers think they’re brolic, but DeBarge beat his case in a couple of days. Top that! He probably just looked in the cop’s eyes and sang a ditty until they just let him off the hook.
