Beverly Hills Police Lt. Elisabeth Albanese said Thursday that investigators had determined there were no violations by either Bieber or the photographer and no citations will be issued.
Bieber struck the 57-year-old paparazzo in Beverly Hills after leaving an event July 26.
Police said Bieber was cooperative after the incident. It occurred days after the pop star canceled his Purpose World tour following several performances in Asia.
The 23-year-old wrote a lengthy Instagram post late Wednesday saying he was grateful to his fans but also wanted his life and career to be sustainable. The post didn’t directly mention the July 26 accident.
“Me taking this time right now is saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE. I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable. So that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be,” he wrote.
Bieber, who has sold millions of albums and won a Grammy Award, has had troubles throughout his eight-year music career. He wrote that he’s not perfect but is trying to do his best.
“Im VERY aware I’m never going to be perfect, and I’m gonna keep making mistakes but what I’m not gonna do is let my past dictate my future,” he wrote. “What I’m not gonna do is be ashamed of my mistakes. I wanna be a man that learns from them and grows from them!”
