Prosecutors said the charge was withdrawn because there was no reasonable prospect of conviction.
It was just one episode in Bieber’s ongoing troubles with the law.
Bieber is due in an Ontario court Sept. 29 to fight new charges. Brian Greenspan, his Toronto lawyer, said last week that Bieber had been arrested Aug. 29 on charges of dangerous driving and assault following a collision between a mini-van and an ATV that led to a physical altercation with a photographer. Greenspan said Bieber was near his hometown of Stratford, Ontario, on a “peaceful retreat” with actor/singer Selena Gomez that “was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of the paparazzi.”
Bieber had earlier been photographed on an ATV vehicle with Gomez, his on-and-off again girlfriend.
Just days before the Ontario incident, Bieber’s car was hit from behind by a vehicle driven by a photographer in Hollywood. Bieber later tweeted: “I don’t have a problem with Paparazzi but when they act recklessly they put us all in danger.”
Last month, Bieber pleaded guilty to misdemeanour charges of careless driving and resisting arrest seven months after his arrest in Miami Beach for what police initially alleged was an illegal street drag race. In a plea bargain, he agreed to an anger management course, a $500 fine and a $50,000 charitable contribution.
Bieber catapulted to fame at age 15, and then earned nominations for two Grammy Awards for his 2010 full-length album debut “My World 2.0.” Sales of his latest records have fallen off.

This is just another small example of how the corrupt legal system works in favour of those it supports.
According to this EVERYONE should then go around assaulting people because there may be "no reasonable prospect of conviction".
