UPDATE: Singer Michael Ketterer, a finalist who finished 5th on NBC's 'America's Got Talent,' will not be charged after being arrested last week after he was arrested on a domestic violence charge.

TMZ, who originally reported the incident, says that the L.A. City Attorney's Office has declined to file charges against Ketterer.

Instead, they have chosen to hold a City Attorney hearing for the 'AGT' singer, which is often used as an alternative to criminal prosecution for low-level crimes.

It's reported that Ketterer will also get counseling on domestic violence as part of the hearing and be warned of the possible consequences for repeat violations.

TMZ, who first reported the arrest, said officers were called after Ketterer got into a fight with his wife. He was arrested when they noticed she had a visible red mark.

Ketterer told TMZ that is was a big misunderstanding, and that his wife didn't want to press charges, but they arrested him anyway.
