Jay-Z's Bodyguard -- Charges Dropped

Just like the tripod he tossed into the sea, the charges against Jay-Z's bodyguard have been officially thrown out.

Croatian law enforcement tell TMZ there will be no jail time for J's hired muscle, who had assault and destroying personal property charges filed against him after a tussle with a local reporter earlier this week.

The bodyguard will have to pay a fine -- and we're told the police will not pursue further legal action.
