A manager for the Black Eyed Peas will not face criminal charges for an assault on celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
Liborio Molina was charged with assault for punching Hilton during an after- party into Toronto on June 22nd.
According to TMZ.com Molina, wrote an apology letter to Perez in exchange for having the assault charge dropped.
“I apologize for what I did on June 22nd of 2009, even though you engaged in highly offensive comments including a homophobic slur to my clients. I acknowledged that these kinds of issues should not be resolved through a physical response,” Molina wrote in his apology letter to Perez Hilton.
Hilton accused Molina of striking him out of anger, after the celebrity-blogger called producer/rapper will.I.am of the Black Eyed Peas a “f**ot” during an altercation.
As part of the deal Molina must avoid contact with Perez and he’s forbidden to carry a weapon for at least one year.
Hilton is still suing Molina in civil court for over $25,000 in damages.
