'No charge' over Rihanna photo leak

Prosecutors will not bring criminal charges against Los Angeles police officers who allegedly leaked photos to TMZ.com of Rihanna bruised and beaten after a fight with Chris Brown.
The Los Angeles Time reports that it has obtained a March report that says that after a three-year investigation, Los Angeles prosecutors did not have enough evidence to show the tabloid paid officers for the photos, which became an obstacle in charging them.
Officers Blanca Lopez and Rebecca Reyes may still get fired from the LAPD for allegedly leaking the photos and are slated to appear before disciplinary panels in August.
Chris was arrested on suspicion of beating the pop star on February 8, 2009.
