An investigation concluded that Danny Bonaduce won’t face charges after tossing Jonny Fairplay over his shoulders at an awards show.

Document released by the district attorney’s office said there is “insufficient evidence” to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Bonaduce committed battery because Fairplay, a former Survivor star, “initiated contact and acted offensively.”

Jonny Fairplay, 33, said he underwent 2 1/2 hours of dental surgery after Bonaduce tossed him over his shoulders at the Fox Reality Channel’s Really Awards last week.

After jumping on Danny Bonaduce, Jonny Fairplay landed on his face.

Documents say what video shows – that Fairplay jumped on Bonaduce, “wrapping his legs around the suspect and thrusting his pelvis into the suspect’s body.”

This is also what’s being reported in a police investigation into Criss Angel and Britney Spears. Just kidding. But wouldn’t that be funny?

Deputy District Attorney Jeffrey Boxer wrote that Bonaduce didn’t intentionally injure Fairplay and his “actions fell within the realm of self-defense.”

Fairplay’s police report claimed the actor walked on stage uninvited and made a “derogatory statement.” Jonny Fairplay later said he was giving Bonaduce a hug, one of his “signature moves.”

A video of the incident captured the sound of the audience booing.

Jonny Fairplay, a grade-A nimrod whose real name is Jon Dalton, appeared in the 2003 CBS reality show “Survivor: Pearl Islands.”

Danny Bonaduce, 48, was a child star on “The Partridge Family.”

He starred in the 2005 reality show “Breaking Bonaduce,” and has recently co-hosted Adam Carolla’s radio show. Guy has some anger issues.
