    Justin Bieber has one less thing to worry about.

    District Attorney spokesperson Jane Robison tells E! News that the court has declined to file felony charges in regards to the pop singer's attempted robbery investigation citing insufficient evidence.They have referred the case to the city attorney for misdemeanor consideration.

    According the police report obtained by E! News, nine employees of the park were interviewed and none of them saw Bieber grab the victim's phone or any physical altercation of any kind. Justin's attorney told police that the celeb would not submit to an interview. Additionally, there were no security cameras or any video footage of the incident that came forward. Based on those reasons, the DA declined to prosecute.

    Los Angeles police confirmed to E! News in May that they were investigating an alleged incident involving Bieber that occurred on the evening of May 12, after a woman claimed that Bieber grabbed her cell phone and yelled at her when she tried to snap a picture of him at a mini-golf complex in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

    "It is hard to defend myself and my privacy every moment of the day. Then to see rumors. The truth will set u free," began the first of a string of tweets from the singer after the incident occurred.

    "My mom raised me to be kind to others," Bieber continued. "I get judged, harassed, and I try to take the high road. Sometimes it isn't easy. But we keep trying...I will continue to be the man my mother raised. I love people and I will try to be kind even when things are not fair. Don't believe rumors...Thanks for those who stick by me and those that help me grow everyday. I love you."

    He went on: "Off to have fun and smile with friends. I'm human. I feel. I hurt. But I got thick skin too. I can handle it. I love you."
