“Rhythm of the Night” singer El DeBarge is in the clear after he was arrested for drug possession this week — because the L.A. County D.A. has declined to file charges.

According to official D.A. documents, the case was rejected due to insufficient evidence.

our sources broke the story … DeBarge was arrested on Tuesday for felony possession of narcotics with intent to sell — the singer”s third drug arrest since 2001.

According to the docs, police officers noticed DeBarge and another man speaking on the street — and for some reason, decided to search them … without giving a reason why.

After searching them and coming up with nothing — cops claim they perused the surrounding area … and found a baggie of rock cocaine hidden under a nearby car.

The other man insisted he was there to buy the rock from DeBarge — but DeBarge denied the accusation … and the D.A. decided there wasn”t enough evidence to make the charge stick.
