Los Angeles D.A. drops felony attempted robbery charge against Justin Bieber

By Kyle Johnson,

The Los Angeles District Attorney announced on Thursday that Justin Bieber won't face felony charges for an incident that happened in May at a batting cage.

According to TMZ, which first learned the news, the Canadian pop star was accused of trying to take a woman's cellphone from her purse after she took a picture of him at Sherman Oaks Castle Park.

They then allegedly fought over the phone and he told her, "You're humiliating yourself in front of your daughter," reports The Star-Ledger.

Bieber was facing a possible felony attempted burglary charge, but police say they spoke with nine witnesses and no one would back up the woman's story.

He could still be slapped with a misdemeanor charge, but TMZ notes that probably won't happen.

While that is one legal problem down, Bieber is still dealing with a potential vandalism charge after his neighbor accused him of egging the man's house. He also has to go to trial in July for a DUI he got in Miami.
