An unspecified fine must also be paid, although Bieber does not have to serve time on probation. Another aspect of the deal requires the pop star to undergo anger management classes.

Charges Dropped against Former State Supported Employee

On Tuesday March 5th, charges were dropped against  a former Corpus Christi State Supported Living Center employee regarding an incident that occurred after the “Fight Club” videos.

30-year-old Tyesha Floyd was allegedly responsible for making two residents to fight each other and was indicted for allowing disabled persons to be injured.

However, based on new evidence given by the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), Floyd’s charges were dropped. District Attorney Mark Skurka said the HHSC report gave doubts regarding the credibility of some of the witnesses that they would have used in the case, in addition to potentially discrediting some of the actions that were reported during the incident.
