    The Associated Press reports that Justin Bieber will record a public service announcement on cyberbullying in order to resolve criminal charges filed against his manager and an executive from his label after a frenzy erupted at a Bieber appearance at a New York mall in 2009.

    Thousands of Beliebers turned up at a Long Island clothing store to see the teen idol sign autographs. Police hadn't been expecting the crowd, and ordered the event cancelled as a result of their inability to contain and control the ladies who love The Bieb.

    Additionally, Def Jam Records executive James Roppo was arrested after police said he refused to help disperse the crowd. Police also pressed child endangerment charges against Bieber's manager, Scott Braun, after the fact. Braun hadn't been at the mall, but police said that when reached by phone, he refused their request to send out a tweet telling Bieber's fans that the singer wouldn't appear.

    Prosecutors told a judge Friday that they are dropping charges against both men. The record company and a management company pleaded guilty to fire code violations.

    What do you think of the outcome of this case?
