The student claimed that the Pole hit him after the 17 year-old shouted he "earns too much money" after it was announced that Lewandowski would be leaving Borussia Dortmund for rivals Bayern Munich.
The German Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper reports local police spokesman Kim Freigang as saying: "For us, the case is closed," after the fan withdrew the allegations.
Lewandowski denied hitting the fan after being sworn at outside his home in the presence of his wife.
The Pole told media after the allegation was made that following being insulted by the irate fan, he approached him, put his hand on his shoulder and asked him "why he was doing this?".
The Polish international, top scorer for Dortmund this season, will be leaving for Bayern Munich at the end of this season after a free transfer deal was sealed in January. (pg)
