Kim Kardashian won't press charges in powder attack
Kardashian told the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department she didn't want to press charges against the woman. And on Twitter, she simply described the evening as "EVENTFUL."
Deputies from the West Hollywood Station responded to a possible battery call shortly before 8 p.m. at the London Hotel in the 1000 block of North San Vicente Boulevard, where Kardashian was hosting an event to publicize the launch of a new perfume.
Upon arrival, deputies were informed that Kardashian had been standing in the hotel lobby when a woman allegedly threw powder on her. The woman was detained by hotel security, authorities said, and paramedics were summoned.
Kardashian refused medical attention and said she did not want to press charges. She went to a hotel room, removed the powder from her hair and clothing, and returned to the event, according to a statement.
The woman, who was not identified, was later released at the scene.
