“LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program. The incident involved one individual slapping another,” the statement read. “The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.”

Smith slapped Rock after Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her bald look.

Pinkett Smith has recently shared about her struggles with alopecia, a hair loss condition.
