There has not been further explanation why authorities decided not to file charges, but the actress' rep has previously denied the allegations.
Jodie Foster

has been cleared over allegations she attacked a teenage photographer in May - police have refused to file charges. The Oscar winner was accused of lashing out at a 17 year old at The Grove shopping center in Los Angeles after his father filed an official police report stating the actress has "pushed and shoved" his son.

The "Silence of the Lambs" star's representative vehemently denied the claims, and insisted the teen was a paparazzo who had hounded Foster and her kids for hours. And the L.A. authorities have sided with Foster - no charges will be brought against the star over the allegations.

City attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan tells E! News, "We did get a copy of the complaint but declined to file charges."
