Justin Bieber escapes charges

Teenage star Justin Bieber has escaped criminal charges relating to an incident at a laser tag centre in Canada.

The pop star had been accused of assaulting a 12 year old boy at the centre in Richmond, British Columbia.

He accused of striking the boy in the face while playing a game of laser tag - an infrared points scoring gun game - in October.

Corporal Turley of the Richmond Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the investigation is now complete and no charges will be forwarded as the evidence collected [doesn't] support doing so."
