Justin Bieber cleared in alleged laser-tag assault Justin Bieber has been cleared of assault allegations related to an October incident at a laser-tag center in British Columbia.

Like Charlie "Plaza Hotel meltdown" Sheen before him -- OK, that's a bit harsh, but work with us --  the Biebs has learned he won't be facing criminal charges. Evidence in the case didn't support moving forward with the investigation, Canadian police told MTV News on Tuesday.

A 12-year-old boy had complained the 16-year-old pop star hit him while both were playing laser tag Oct. 15.

"Justin did what any other person would do during a laser-tag game, and was just trying to get away from getting shot at and accidentally hit the kid while running away," a game-center staffer told Canadian celeb blogger Zack Taylor.
