Pop singer Britney Spears does not have to stand trial for assault.
Prosecutors in Ventura County, California announced Wednesday (local time) that they will not file a complaint due to a lack of evidence. The case centered on allegations by an employee of the singer that she was attacked by Spears in a physical dispute. The police investigated the incident in mid-August.
According to the housekeeper, Spears is said to have taken the phone out of the woman’s hand. The case was referred to the Public Prosecutor’s Office for review. The authority has now found that no material damages or injuries to the employee were found, which could lead to an indictment.
Spears, who is under the guardianship of her father and another person after a mental breakdown in 2008, is currently battling in Los Angeles court. Under the hashtag “#FreeBritney,” many supporters have stood by the singer in the past few months, calling for freedom and self-determination for Spears.
