Brandon Lee won’t be facing changes for his bloody altercation with his father. According to TMZ, the L.A. County D.A. officially rejected the case against the 21-year-old because Tommy Lee chose not to cooperate with the criminal investigation against his son.
A spokesperson for the department revealed that the D.A. declined to file charges on Friday against Brandon, who was accused of sucker punching his father in the face last month. As we reported, Brandon claimed he thought the M├â┬╢tley Cr├â┬╝e drummer was going to strike him, due to the rocker’s alleged drinking problem, and acted in self defense.
In Tommy’s declination filed to the police, it says Brandon told his father, “Get up old man and fight me,” then punched Tommy out cold. The letter claims Brandon then said, “Look at you, motherfucker, you are knocked-out” before Tommy’s fianc├â┬⌐e Brittany Furlan called 911.
The two still have a lot to hash out. But if Tommy was purposely uncooperative so police dropped the charges against his son, well… that’s a start.
