Britney Spears will not be charged over dispute with staff member

Authorities will not be pursuing charges against Britney Spears after investigators looked into a dispute with the singer and one of her employees.

The Ventura County District Attorney's Office said in a press release on Wednesday that after reviewing the case submitted by the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, they decline to file charges "based upon insufficient evidence that a crime had occurred and the lack of injury to the housekeeper or significant damage to the phone."

Last month Spears' housekeeper alleged that the singer struck a cell phone out of her hand during an argument over the veterinary care of her dog.

"This is overblown sensational tabloid fodder -- nothing more than a fabricated 'he said she said' regarding a cell phone, with no striking and obviously no injury whatsoever," Mathew Rosengart, attorney for Spears, said in a statement to CNN at the time. "Anyone can make an accusation, but this should have been closed immediately. "

Meanwhile, the Grammy winner is in the midst of a public battle with her father, Jamie Spears, over her court-ordered conservatorship. The next hearing is scheduled for September 29.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
