Justin Bieber

Will NOT Be Charged

in Alleged Photog Battery

11/21/2012 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber has a lot to be thankful for ... not only is he back in Selena's good graces -- he won't be charged for allegedly beating up a paparazzo ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Justin was a suspect in a misdemeanor battery, after a photog claimed he and the singer got into a physical altercation back in May on the mean streets of Calabasas.  The photog called 911 and filed a police report.

We've learned the L.A. County D.A. will NOT file criminal charges, because of conflicting witness accounts and an overall lack of evidence.

Fun Facts about Calabasas:

-- The Menendez brothers went to Calabasas High School
-- Elizabeth Berkley also went there ...but was nicer to her parents

Photog battery? Oh, come on. The only thing physical Justin Bieber would do to this paparazzo is try to hook up with the guy while circulating unconvincing stories about his "passion" for his beard, Selena Gómez. When will JB finally come out of the closet?

Haha good, when paps start fights on purpose for the big money shot, celebs should be able to get away with a shove or two :D
Justin's been an athlete since he was a small kid, still plays sports, spends the rest of the year dancing and twisting on stages all over the world, he has a solid core and can handle his own ;)

Not meaning to encourage something bad for the already bs star culture (at least until the prison system corrects the parasite paradigm and stops jailing people), but SOME members of a star's entourage (Kamikaze and temporary members) could specifically be hanging around to target the very most annoying paparrazi on behalf of the star - with full expectation of being jailed or charged for assault. This should be a special paid stint monthly for those prepared to suffer jail so that said star could hammer the worst of the privacy invaders, but probably could be left alone when they talk trash about being who and who's PA and liven up the prison scene IF that stars not some 'cop' character etc..) and also indirectly link the start to the prison system . . . for what purposes - no comment). This way, any star can appear to not have given the order and still get to hammer their most hated invader of privacy by proxy entourage (who could be 'dropped' from entourage for assaulting people etc..). To be even more 'defensive', the 'kamikaze' entourage person could have their face covered MJ/Ninja style etc..

If you're a celebrity, it means you're ABOVE the law, and can expect to get off from beinbg charged with a crime. Shameful.

Note to paps, if Bieber kicks your ass best not to tell anyone.
Just an aside, where the heck do you buy baggy leather pants?
