R&B star El DeBarge will not face charges for his arrest for drug possession earlier this week, TMZ reports. The singer was busted by officers in Encino, California on Monday and was released on $30,000 bail. The police caught DeBarge and another man in a hand-to-hand narcotics transaction and he was charged with possession with intent to sell.

According to official Los Angeles Distict Attorney documents obtained by TMZ, the case was dropped due to insufficient evidence. The papers say police never gave DeBarge and the other man involved in the transaction a reason for a search, which resulted in them finding a small bag of rock cocaine hidden underneath a nearby car.
