Justin Bieber cleared in mobile phone robbery case because of 'insufficient evidence'
The singer allegedly delved into woman's bag after accusing her of taking photos
Tuesday 17 June 2014
Justin Bieber has been cleared of wrongdoing in an attempted robbery investigation where he was accused of taking a woman's mobile phone.
The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office said prosecutors rejected the allegations because of insufficient evidence to back up the claims.
The 20-year-old singer was accused of trying to take the woman's phone in May to try and remove photos he thought she had taken from him at an amusement park in Van Nuys, California.
She was with her 13-year-old daughter at the time.
Bieber's representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
He is still under investigation for allegedly egging a neighbour's mansion in nearby Calabasas, California, and causing damage.
The “Boyfriend” singer has seen his popularity damaged by a string of recent controversies, including being filmed making a racist joke including the n-word.
He has faced charges of assault in Toronto, driving under the influence, resisting arrest and using an expired license in Miami Beach, Florida.
In April, he was publicly shouted at by a family friend for being a "little p***k’"after misbehaving in a supermarket, before going on to offend Chinese and South Korean fans for visiting a Japanese shrine honouring war criminals later that month.
