The charge that Gabriela Targos put against her former wrestler friend is dropped after prosecutors find little evidence.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles have dropped their case against wrestler-turned-actress - a month after she was arrested for allegedly attacking a friend at a motel in California.

Chyna, real name Joanie Laurer, was named in a battery investigation by officials at the Los Angeles Police Department after Gabriela Targos, who claimed the pair had been friends for years, alleged the star punched her in the face for no reason.

Targos also told police Laurer threatened to kill her and pulled her by the hair during the alleged incident at a motel in Sherman Oaks, California on April 24. But officials at the L.A. City Attorney's Office have now declined to charge Laurer, claiming there is "insufficient evidence" to continue with the case, according to TMZ.com.
