Justin Bieber has been cleared by the FAA in connection with an incident that took place at Teterboro Airport in N.J. back in January.

The FAA was investigating the incident that occurred on Bieber's private jet, which he had chartered over Super Bowl weekend. The singer and passengers were detained at the airport on January 31. It was reported, at the time, that Bieber and his fellow passengers had mistreated the crew. Additionally, they allegedly smoked so much marijuana that the pilots were forced to wear oxygen masks.

The Federal Aviation Amdinistration had been looking into those claims. Though at the time of the incident, a search was conducted and no unsmoked marijuana was found. Additionally, Bieber, his father, Jeremy Bieber, and entourage were allowed to go after no one from the flight crew was willing to file any charges.

"The FAA closed its investigation into allegations that passengers interfered with the flight crew on a Gulfstream G-IV aircraft that landed at Teterboro Airport on Friday, Jan. 31, 2014," reads a statement released today (July 3) to E! News. "The FAA found no evidence that the passengers violated Federal Aviation Regulations."
