Justin Bieber has plenty to be thankful for…a successful music career, unbelievable wealth, a second shot at a relationship with Selena Gomez (well, maybe)…and now The X Factor star and hit singer has one more thing to add to that list: no charges for his alleged altercation with the paparazzi!
Last May, Justin Bieber allegedly tried to prove that he was the man in his relationship by beating up a paparazzo he thought guilty of harassing girlfriend Selena Gomez. This altercation took place outside of a shopping mall near Justin’s residence in Calabasas. The paparazzo called the cops and an ambulance, but by the time the police arrived, Justin and Selena were already gone.
Since May, local law enforcement has been investigating the case. However, conflicting eyewitness accounts and a general lack of evidence have gotten in the way of securing an answer to that unbelievable question: is Justin Bieber really capable of beating up a paparazzi? Unfortunately, we’ll never know the answer, because the TMZ has reported that the case was recently thrown out. As we suspected, the LA County D.A. found that the lack of evidence made it impossible to come to a real conclusion.
This is good news, because, had he been charged with misdemeanor battery, Justin could have faced up to six months in prison. Obviously, celebs always get it easier than us mere mortals in prison, but we’re guessing that the Biebs still wouldn’t have been too happy with that outcome.
Can you see Justin Bieber as guilty of attacking a paparazzo? Or does throwing out the charges make sense? Feel free to share your reaction in the comments section below!
