FARGO, N.D. - Authorities say no charges will be filed against one of the Canadian twin brother stars of HGTV's "Property Brothers" following an incident at a North Dakota bar.

According to a police report, Jonathan Scott repeatedly refused to leave the Fargo bar at closing time early April 24. A bar staffer told police that Scott said, "Do you know who I am?" when asked to hand over his drink.

Security camera footage shows Scott resisting bar staff while being escorted out. The video shows Scott returning before being physically removed again.

Police asked prosecutors to consider charges of disorderly conduct against Scott. Fargo City Attorney Erik Johnson says there's not enough evidence to establish a crime.

A spokeswoman for Scott says he was trying to defuse a situation "between other people."
