The coast is clear for the Justin Bieber attempted robbery charge; the LA City Attorney favors the “Believe” singer in a case involving a May spat and snatching incident.
mtv.com report, Bieber is cleared from allegations of attempted robbery. A complainant has accused the performer of trying to steal her mobile phone last May.
In the charge, Bieber allegedly approached the complainant and demanded she remove pictures taken of him
in an emotional outburst. Bieber reportedly was practicing at the Sherman Oaks Castle Park when he noticed the complainant taking his picture, leading to the incident.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney ruled out the case last week due to lack of substantial evidence, in an allegation that should have merited as a misdemeanor offense for Bieber. Eyewitnesses to the incident also favor Bieber, telling TMZ in an interview that the complainant actually instigated the incident.
The Justin Bieber attempted robbery is cleared and dismissed, but Selena’s ex-boyfriend is also set to face pending legal raps, including assault charges and driving under the influence.

Florida police caught up with him drag racing a leased Lamborghini; he has admitted to have taken prescription drugs, marijuana, on top of alcohol intake.
