Bieber won't be charged with assault on snapper

JUSTIN Bieber will not face charges after investigators found no evidence that he kicked and punched a photographer after leaving a cinema.

Prosecutors had been asked by police to consider filing a misdemeanour battery charge against Bieber, but Los Angeles County sheriff's investigators found no visible injuries, video or photographs to confirm the photographer's allegations.

Bieber (18) was leaving the cinema in May when he had the encounter in a car park.

Authorities interviewed several witnesses, but none reported seeing Bieber kick the man, and they noted that the photographer kept taking photos as the singer left the location.
