Justin Bieber is off the hook for two major brushes with the law that brought the singer widespread, if unwanted, publicity.

The L.A County District Attorney has declined to file charges against the 19-year-old singer for allegedly speeding recklessly and for allegedly spitting on his neighbor, ABC News Radio confirmed today.

According to documents provided by the D.A.’s office, the evidence in the speeding case hinged on a videotape, which failed to show that Bieber was in his Ferrari at the time of the alleged incident, in which he was accused of driving at high speeds through his Calabasas, Calif., neighborhood.  At the time, Bieber’s friend, “Odd Future” rapper Tyler, the Creator, copped to driving the car.

As for the spitting incident, documents show that the D.A. decided it was the neighbor’s word against the singer’s, and Bieber denied doing it.

In addition, investigators determined that the neighbor had entered Bieber’s property without being invited, so even though the singer may have threatened violence against him, his actions “did not rise to the level of a criminal threat,” according to the documents.
