The New York Daily News confirmed a TMZ report that no charges will be filed. TMZ reported that a shove did not even occur, and that the police officer tripped while entering Avery's home.
Los Angeles Police Department Lt. Jorge Pardo told City News Service at the time that a neighbor's noise complaint sent police to the home at about 1 a.m. local time.
Pardo said Avery answered the front door, shoved an officer and slammed the door but cooperated when officers knocked a second time.
The officer wasn't injured.
Avery, 31, was booked on suspicion of battery on a police officer. He was released about seven hours later after posting $20,000 bail.
