Mario Batali won't be charged for 2 affirmed rapes in NYC ... law authorization sources tell TMZ. We're told the NYPD has shut the two bodies of evidence against Batali after agents couldn't discover any observers or proof supporting cases made by the informers.
We broke the story ... a lady recorded a police report last March guaranteeing she was assaulted by Batali on Jan. 29, 2004 at his West Village restaurant.
NYPD was likewise researching Batali for sexual offense after a lady approached on "a hour" guaranteeing he explicitly attacked her in 2005 at his Spotted Pig eatery. We connected with the NYPD and the Manhattan D.A. ... both declined to remark.
