Justin Bieber Cleared from Alleged Battery Charges

After a nasty run-in with an eager photographer, Justin Bieber learned today (November 21) that he will not face charges for assault.

Back in May, the 18-year-old singer was involved in an alleged physical altercation with the paparazzi after off-color comments were made towards the Biebs’ on-again off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez.

According to TMZ, the Los Angeles County District Attorney decided not to file any criminal charges because of conflicting witness accounts and an overall lack of evidence in the case.

The photographer claimed that the “Boyfriend” singer kicked and punched him, which resulted in a misdemeanor battery case.

This isn’t the only legal matter Justin’s dealt with as of late. Just last week, a California judge threw out a paparazzi’s case against Bieber in a high-speed chase in West Hollywood.
