DA Won’t File Felony Charge Against Bieber Over Run-In With Woman At Mini Golf Course
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office declined to file a felony case against pop star Justin Bieber in connection with an alleged run-in with a woman over whether she had taken any cell phone images of him at a Sherman Oaks miniature golf course.
In a charge evaluation worksheet released Thursday, a prosecutor wrote that the May 13 incident at Sherman Oaks Castle Park “does not warrant felony prosecution.”
The matter was referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office for possible misdemeanor prosecution.
Nine miniature golf course employees were interviewed. The DA wrote that no one who saw the encounter described any kind of physical altercation or tug-of-war involving the woman over the cell phone.
County prosecutors have not yet decided whether to file a case against Bieber in another case. He was accused of egging a Calabasas neighbor’s home in January. The matter is still under review, according to Jane Robison of the D.A’s Office.
