Beyonce, Jay-Z and Beyonce's bodyguard Julius in Croatia (August 18th 2009)

The man doing his job to protect Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z while the couple were spending some quality time together in Croatia last week will walk free of charges.

The charges originally brought against Julius the bodyguard were officially thrown out in court last week, meaning there will be no jail time for the big bodyguard, who had assaulted paparazzi and destroyed some of their personal property, including throwing one camera man’s tripod into the sea only after the same camera man threw it at him as his back was turned.

The bodyguard will reportedly be fined an undisclosed sum for the damaged equipment and police will not pursue further legal action.
