Case closed for Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber and all his Beliebers can breathe a sigh of relief.
CNN has learned that the teen pop star won't face charges regarding an alleged scuffle that erupted at a Canadian laser tag park in October.
A spokeswoman with the Richmond Royal Canadian Mounted Police told CNN that while they can’t speak specifically about the individuals involved in the matter due to their ages, they could say that their investigation into the Bieber case is complete, no charges will be forwarded as the evidence doesn’t support that motion, and that the case is now closed.
Back in October, word spread that Bieber had been accused of assaulting a 12-year-old during a game of laser tag at a facility in Richmond, British Columbia. Among reports that the Grammy nominee allegedly punched the 12-year-old in the face, TMZ cited an unnamed source as saying that Bieber was targeted by his 12-year-old laser tag opponent.

YO what the heck you are jealous hanna take one moment because your a jealous girl a super jealous girl so stop being jealous in deal with it
ok people i hate jb yay u know who i'm talking about justin bieber cause I saw him holding hands with a Gril named julia
really? Justin would never do anything to hurt anyone he is an awesome man. maybe it was self defence. everyone makes mistakes. for the bleibers i think that we will still enjoy him its not like you havent gotten in truble he is an normal kid jsut like us so just come on
OMG! Tell me he's not wearing lip gloss.
seriously people shut the hell up. why are you dissing a 16 year old BOY ? he didn't do anything wrong...you people need lives and stop commenting and reading about him if you don't like him. justin bieber is amazing and i don't care what you people say. your probably older people who has nothing better to do ..
Simply Amazing that someone would come to the aid of Justine Bieber.
I guess if she would have taken off her momma's sun glasses she might have had a chance
of whipping that 12 yr old!!! LOL.
The headline said he was working on his "street cred"
Would that be SEASME STREET CRED???
That woulda been funny if I spelled it correctly....
Let's try it again....

ok ppl replying back to me when the bloody hell did i say i was an adult im a teenager close to JBs age! Im 18 and also Miley Cyrus was taking half nude pix when she was 15 not 18, and also i shorten my word cuz its the 21st century we r in the texting world these days and it is much easier since im using my phone!
I have enjoyed this young man since before he was famous as I struggled to find him on U Tube. His love to entertain and bring joy to those viewing him shows in his WORK to do a great job for his viewers even when he was a small boy. He is successful not only because he was discovered by a manager with connections. He is successful because he WORKS HARD and has devoted his life to be great. The manager and Usher are lucky individuals to have found him first! I hope and pray the envy crowd, drug culture, the leeches that try to steal his earnings and peer pressure are unsuccessful in breaking his love to entertain. I do hope the assults mentioned are Really false. At 16 I hope his mom and others will help him stay away from this distructive behavior. He is a HARD WORKING YOUNG MAN and my prayers are with him that as his voice and appearance changes he is able to adapt and stay the great entertainer he is! I want to be still watching him living my dream in 20 years while I'm in the nursing home!
all u HATERS get over ur self you would done the samething if you was Justin
get better that http://www.SUPERSONIC.US.COM
I think the guy is a great entertainer and singer. People will always have something negative to say when you're successful. Keep on doing what you do brother.
I love how people get on these things and try to talk all intellectual when really they sound kinda ignant, lol cracks me up
This bull. In my country we would take beiber by throat and tell "sing or you become wife."
Good for the 12 year old maybe he'll learn to shut his mouth there's nothing better than smacking someone in the mouth when they can't shut it
@mike carter "Let's trade him to the U.S.A. , and get Pam Anderson back."
We've already used her up, you can have her back.
I'm sure he gets hard time from alot of guys who are jealous of him but hey JB if it happens again don't punch them in the face punch them in the throat it's much more effective and effecient.
what a kook!
Thank god..... the world can now breathe a sigh of releif!
The whole thing was a sham so that people will not realize that Justin has strong mixed gender feelings that are getting worse. I can't stand this little girl wanna-be wussy.
That little sissy,
Hope this helps Justin get into drugs and other bad things..............
everyone is making this thing way....... BIGGER than it has to be...its crazy and dramatic..at one point in your life or maybe your childs life there has been an physical altercation that did not result in the imprisonment ....kids fight..hell grown ups fight..not saying that thats the right thing to do its just reality and this young man faces the same drama that we edo in our daily lives he just slipped up..and was human for a moment..the children in my family loves u and that boy better be glad that they werent there because we got your back...later 4 all yall haters....
I dont believe that young guy who is in the music industry with probably hundreds and possibly thousands of fans do that and risk everything that he has accoplished with his success with his music. if i was in the music industry with nashville i wouldnt risk my dream of becoming a country singer. ive always wanted to be a country singer. i just dont know how to go about it. if someone could email at the email above and give me some pointers that would make me happy. i am getting married next year and would love 2 start a family and would love 2 get into the singing career so i can give my fiance and our future kids things that they would want.
I love jb soooooo much!!!!
Who cares, is this how far our society has fallen by caring or worrying about the life of a girly-boy and his daily activities or scuffles with another child. Get a life, little girls. 12/15/10
Wow what a loser.
It's so funny to see the lack of punctuation from his supporters. Guess its true that his fans haven't gotten their periods yet.
and by the way just me saying that doesnt mean i dont care for the kid for crying out loud hes got an amazing voice
does it matter what justin does he is gonna end up same path as half of kid stars down drug alley or up booze street either way his busy schedule is going to break him down its called burn out
I'd probably pull the hair myself to see if it's real. What a girlie-boy.....
That kid who got clocked just had a bit of the "Bieber Fever" that's all.
I like his songs but not him or his voice :•}
miley cyrus is the antichrist and Justin Beiber, rob pattinson, taylor lautner, and joe jonas are the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
For u haters. It takes so much energy to hate. Use your energy to promote the betterment of mankind. Remember to hate someone is a reflection of how u feel about yourself.
Not to mention the i phone does make it a pain and slower. Lots slower if you really have something to say.
At this moment I an greatly satisfied with my choice to not suffer listening to this kid, or Miss Cyrus in my house. Never the less, a sixteen year old on a twelve year old is wrong even he the kid was being obnoxious. Barring absolute self defense from being seriously injured or killed. Children should be taught to show some self control, especially if they are going to make their living off the hard work of others. But, boys will be boys. Hard work so they do not have the energy to use on being punks is a good proscription. On another note, I read above about punctuation problems. Of course most childrencannot do so properly that are in our schools today. Our schools are dumb what do you expect from the blind leading the blind? Last year I was told that the students are being trained to use each other to learn and correct each other. Supposed social skills. How the hell are they supposed to learn he the teacher ain't teaching
You realize how embarrassing it would be to have you ass kicked by Justin Beiber?
Man u ppl really do have problems. What u guys don't have somewhere to be right now? Why don't you go get laid or something. I don't like Justin Beiber i Think he's got like 2 more years left before he withers up and dies like a flower but i don't hate on him 24/7. I came across this article and thought it would be interesting to figure out what the little girl did to get prosecuted and you know what i find a bunch of virgin haters that bang thier computers because they can't get a girlfriend.
Yes, all haters need girlfriends... because all these haters are guys... right... so if a girl is a hater does she need a girlfriend, too?
When you point out other people's problems/issues, you lose sight of your own.
"Yes, all haters need girlfriends... because all these haters are guys... right... so if a girl is a hater does she need a girlfriend, too?
I think Justin is somebody's girlfriend.
i cant stand ustin beibers music it drives me nuts but come on two kids fighting how is this news it happens all the time and criminal charges what ever happened to kids being kids peeoples way to serious these days
This kid will be in rehab for doing coke off one of his "greatest hits" album before he's 22
yall are just so jealous of that Justin B. dude.
Im sorry but these things are dumb. He is a teenager,famous or not why cant they just be left alone? Look at lindsy lohan..her entire life was out in the open and now look at her!! GET A LIFE PEOPLE
I give him 6 weeks before he is on the bong!
seriously guys, its not cool to say that stuff about him. Im not a fan but you gotta admit he's pretty successful for his age. why dont we all just pray he doesnt end up like the guy version of lindsay lohan or worse paris hilton!!! ewww
@godsmack rules, im angry bcuz ppl excuse all these celeb teens behaviour as cute and all that, when they get off the hook easier than us ppl who acctually work for a living. And also u cant bloody say n e thng bout wot money i make when u obviously dont know mate also he isnt just a kid to me when im about the same age
Don't try to con us into thinking you're an adult... it's not working. You obviously don't talk like one with your shortened words like "bcuz."
Kids these days, trying to grow up too fast yet fall so short...
he'll be going soon like the rest of the bubble gum teen idiots. thank god.
or just the ones with money? oh yea lets not 4get money is the root of all evil
Money is NOT the root of all evil.
The LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all evil.
Get it right.
Wow! So much negativity in one place! Damn I just wonder how many of you judgemental ppl were actually there since your so certain hes guilty. And since the beginning of time boys have been fighting, probably some of you. Should all boys be prosecuted
bieber got hurt.....he fell off the ladder trying to reach puberty 😛
Vixen Blue why are you so angry? Lol! He is just a kid. What's the matter? Are you hating on him because he makes more money than you would in your lifetime? I'm no fan of his also but he doesn't bother me that much that i would hate and rip him apart.
oh ppl that are hatting and cant stand him or his "girly" voice and wish you didnt have to hear him or about him..one question WHY YOU READING the story about him?? Lol oh thats right its cuz you "dont care" hahaha oh and btw not even a fan was just reading articals and came across this one ppl ppl please find something better to do than rag on a 16 year old thats got more money in his pocket then any of you right
The little boy started it with me and he deserved it so i punch him my dad was laughing so were my friends and me so forget the snotnosed kid
DAMN SO MANY HATERS GESH ANIT NVA SEEN SO MNY HATERS HATE I MEAN REALLY YAL NEEDA GET A LIFE OHHH I 4GOT YAL DONT CUZ YAL SITIN HEA HATIN ON JUSTIN BIEBER AT LEAST HE DOIN SUMN WIT HIS LIFE UNLIKE YAL
What exactly are you doing? I assume that would be the same thing you accuse us of doing...
Ciara – If that is your REAL name....
"Ciara", hows about staying off your parents computer and attend some english classes that way when you grow up others can understand what you are trying to say.
Estebon, he doesn't just sing. he plays piano, guitar, drums, and he can dance. And for everyone who is hating on him, what are you?? like 7? Be mature people! And this is coming from a 15 year old!
Errr..... Bill, if you actually listened to his new song 'Pray' you'll find that Justin's voice is actually very deep. And if you listened to him live, you'll find its actually very deep. They obviously make his voice sound higher. Please don't bash on someone you don't know. Its rude.
this is the same kid that got away with assaulting a cop in md and a whole lot of moms think this is their kids idol...really, lets get real people-he will eventually be the next rehab junkie b/c no one shows their kids there are consequences anymore, especially in the entertainment business!
Royal Canadian Police investigated for 2 months & not only finds Justin Bieber innocent but found evidence the other kid was the real aggressor! So if the BIEBs doesn't press charges, doesn't take revenge, he will look like a real SAINT.
We are expecting hundreds of comments from haters & fools. If u were not there to see what happened, u are just expressing your bias. This uncensored internet remains a real open stinking sewer for crazy nutters who hide behind the anonymity of it. Wouldn't it be embarrassing if all that changed tomorrow (eg. Wikileaks) & u were traced via your IP address & held to account for all your hurtful comments! Maybe some day u will get charged for "verbal assault"?
Let this kidd sing when his balls drop call 801-389-1438 for the beiber haters.!
omg.. such a big fan! xoxo i love u justin! you are awesome and never forget it! AHHHHHH!!!! XOXO
Peeps, jb rox. Why cant you get that through your head????? You guys are just jellous! :p
Can't wait till this little plick hits puberty and his voice sounds like a frog instead od a 10 year old girl.
OMG! Give him a brake! Hes nice and cute! I cant imagine anyone not liking Justin. Love you Justin! xoxo
people need to just leave him alone. how would u like it if people hated you just because ur famous? like they should have taught u in 1st grade "treat other the way you want to be treated"
Hey if Usher, Akon, and Ludacris are down with the beibs so am I.....and maybe that kid deserved to get punched. If he wanted to act like a bad he should be able to back it up! PS I like his haircut!
Usher and the rest saw an opportunity to attract a bunch of pre-pubescent little girls and singed him. He'll last a year or two and be gone.
Hes a cute boy so leave him alone
i know he's cute and i also love his everythin but just being cute can't be the reason for all of this...well I don't blame this situation to justin bieber but i just think that your opinion dosen't make sense. does it?! (just my opinion)
All I can say is watch out. You mess with the Bieber and you might be in for a good cat fight.
Dang it, can't believe he won artist of the year award! I know he's a good kid and all but I wish he could do something else besides singing.
Ok look if this was a regular person they would have been kicked out... i cant stand the feminine 16 year old boy who hasnt hit puberty
Who's that pretty lesbian pictured above?
Beaver beaver beaver justin justin justin!!!!!!!!!!
I trully dont like diz boy beaver. Am sure hes gettin it in hes butt already by usher... He will be another aaron carter smokin weed and doing who knows what else..
whose justin beiber???
who R U then?! ^_^ haha I'll just take that as a joke.. U must be jokin'
U spelled wrong!! it's not beiber it's bieber!!
You guys are just jealous. God gave us all gifts that we take for granted. Justin was smart enough to use his. He is also helping his mom which happens to be a single parent. .I am a single parent I know its tough and I have two beautiful girls with an amazing voice and if my girls ever made a career out of that so what. leave the poor kid alone already.geeze
He got the best justice that money can buy
You guys are just jealous. God has given us all gifts that we take for granted.Justin was just smart to use his, and he is also helping his mom which is great.
I love how people are "jealous" when they don't agree with your opinion. Why don't you learn some real debating skills. Learn to make your point with facts, not by labelling other posters.
Cheefsfury where are you? Did you fall off the radar?
Haha! This is ridiculous! Boys fight all the time! If he got charged, that would be criminal! I don't enjoy his music either, but I would hope that if my son got in a "scuffle" he wouldn't land in court. Now, if he vicously attacked this other kid.. Then maybe! But it doesn't sound like that is what happened. I do see him following the path of the Lohan child star syndrome, but thats just my opinion.
BOY...GO GET A HAIR CUT OR SOMETHING CAUSE THATS UGLY
He took a swing at the kid...hes officially a punk.
Too bad it was just a laser gun.
Get a mans haircut sissyboy.

Im not a fan of bieber but all this drama about him hitting the kid in the face c`mon who cares and move on with ur life.
OMG such venom! Its amazing how he is found guilty on the basis of no evidence. I don't particularly like his music or understand his attraction but give the boy a break! How can you hate somebody when that person has never done anything to deserve such hatred. Let's get some perspective people!
Haaaaaaaa lucky little kid ...... Trying to be a tough guy
I'm waiting for the day we get to hear about him committing suicide in a Waffle House bathroom.
I saw two people doing it in a waffle house. It was awesome.
Hey guys, lay off. I'm not a Fan of Bieber, but Fighting equalling a court case? That's insanity, because if that really did happen for hitting someone, many more people would have criminal records on their heads. :-\ I'm not saying it's right, but that's just wrong wanting him to have a criminal case.
Two words.......who cares?
X marks the dum-azz
Um ... you care! I mean why post anything if you really don't care? LOL! Such hypocrits on here.
Beieber is my astronaughty
Than too, for the spelling police
I can tell very easily the ones here that are still in school. Punctuation people. Didn't you learn anything at all in school? This is a disgrace on the American school system. If you can't spell the word, just stay off of the computer. Study a little more, you will find the benefit more that adequate when you search for a job.
I think you need a grammar lesson as well as the people you've accused of having poor punctuation. You may be one step above the rest of the commenters, but that's not saying much.
wait......Walker Texas Ranger.
Chuck Norris.....enough said
God forgives. May He forgive all of us in Jesus name. We all have come short of His glory cos we are sinners. The Bible said that we should love others as we love our selfs, So people, let's forget and forgive, God bless all of us, Amen.
Is god going to hang out with santa claus next weekend, or is he to busy helping the easter bunny paint his eggs?
Hey quit hating on justin bieber I think he is a good singer and he doesn't have a girly voice. He didn't need to be charged with this and he doesn't need to belocked up in jail either. He is only 16 yrsold and a good singer.
ROTFLMAO! Shouldn't you be in school?
Omg I Didnt Know He Did That Im Glad He Didnt Get Charged U Rock Justin I love u Justin Keep Up With The Good Songs U Make And The Good Acting U Do
A 16 year old punched a 12 year old in the face cuz he was been teased and no case huh...he was wrong to do that..
Maybe it was thrown out because the Judges daughter(s) has BIEBER FEVER!
...and I leaned over the balcony, and started going...hgugh! Hgugh! Hgugh!
Hey u people need to step off im pretty sure some little girl or pre teen or teenager that likes justin hes talented i would of reacted the same way people r money hungary and should teach their children not to taunt people im a real big jb fan hey
haha ppl whats ur point about saying "hes just a kid" im a kid and i cnt stand him! So is that what evryones excuse is now? Miley cyrus took half nudes and smokes salvia but i suppose thats ok too cuz "shes just a kid" right?
Miley is in the "18 and over" category, fool.
No charges against Bieber? Well, you go girl!
He will be gone when he hits puberty and loses that little girl voice.
I think if the truth be know that the 12 year old probably kicked his ass and Justin's happy that the public didn't find out!
This is news?? Is this a joke? Who cares, we people need to grow up and care about more important things like this scam called war on terror aka. Billions in government officials pockets. WAKE UP PEOPLE
What an uptight butt hole, why come on the entertainment section of the news to preach to those who have deliberately chosen to read mindless dribble. We're all adults we have chosen this section of the news instead of the hard core news for a reason, because we are tired of thinking about the world and its problems! You go do the same and stop taking yourself so seriously!!!
Funny, you read it. Then felt so compelled to take time to comment on it. So what does that make you? Not everyone wants to read conspiracy theories. Not everyone wants to read all depressing, make you want to jump off a bridge stories about death, suffering, and destruction all the time. The suicide rate would be much higher.
Wow, non ignorant; looks like you do care since you chose to post anyway. You truly sound ignorant! LOL!
Me thinks tho art an idiot....
As this IS the ENTERTAINMENT section where folks like myself and OTHERS like to ESCAPE the daily grinds of war, politics, and MORONS LIKE YOU!!!
Get a grip man, go on back to your little cave and do what ever it is you trolls do in there .
y r people haten on him he may be still 16 but he still a person would any one want someone to be like how u r to u no i pretty sure u wouldnt want that so really just keep bad coments to yourself n write comments that r like that but can be taken as a good comment dont just be on one star theres a lot out there
Where were you educated?
A translator is needed for your coment.
What the Hell was that? Was that English?
This message brought to you by the letters y, r u, i, and n...
Damn, I was hoping they would lock him up and throw away the key and we would never have to hear his girly voice again.
He is going to end up a male hoe on the streets of Hollywood.
At least it's not another fat story.
He is working on his street cred.
What world do u live in where a fight dont result in a civil suit? Thats part of the problem in america, everybody wants to get paid for doin squat!
Except that this happened in Canada genius.
Canada is in america genius.
Wow the lack of education some people get...like geography.
I hate his voice!!! I wish that there were charges so we could get some peace and quiet
He may be a kid but he's still a total FREAK SHOW! (gross little girl).
I live near here and the story that's been going around the whole time is that the 12 yr old and his friends were chasing and taunting Bieber and Justin pushed him to get past the group and moved on. The kid's father is a lawyer and the word is that he was hoping that criminal charges would help their civil case.
This kid gets on my nerves.
Jeeze he is a kid. Jealous are you?
If it was an normal kid they would have just been kicked out and banned. no one would open a civil case on a couple boys fighting.
He's very much guilty but as you know money can make your troubles go away...until you committ murder, just ask phil spector
Are you really comparing a 16 years old pop star laser tag scuffle to phil spector crimes?
Odd to use Spector as a comparison...considering money did NOT help him out of his troubles, he's locked up for the rest of his life. Not to mention cold blooded murder and decades of domestic violence don't really compare to a teenager scuffle.
Nickster and YoureNot, you both are unbelievably stupid. Reading comprehension is the cornerstone of success. You are both already failures.
Oooo come on now he's a kid & who knows he might make a song u might like one day...i just hope he doesnt slip into some kind of stuper like some of these young celebraties..lol!!
My music is supposed to cause world war 3!!!!
Dam no charges i cant stand his voice or him
Let's trade him to the U.S.A. , and get Pam Anderson back.
This news is bogus! I was there when that fights happend... this 12 yrs old kid grabbed Justin Bieber's hair cuz he thought it was a wig (soo shiny and then Justin got mad and pulled the boy's hair as well...it's like a tag of war!!! Justin got beat up soo bad he started screaming like a girl..so bodyguard came in for rescue and punched the boy in the face. True story!
I will be kind to Canadians...let's launch him into another galaxy...it's a matter of time this kid will be in some obscure Reality TV show on MTV if he is not arressted for something or other.
Ummm.....I hope this story isn't true. Justin B. is 16 years old. Doesn't really matter who started the fight he shouldn't be hitting someone younger than him.
Him? I though he was a she? I think that she is very pretty.
How in the world is a 12 year old butch lesbian going to improve her street cred.
