A bodybuilding influencer who flaunts his cash and "Lamborghini bod" online has been cleared of assaulting and threatening to kill a stranger.
Yakiboy, real name Hossein Balapour, appeared at Burwood Local Court in Australia on September 29 after pleading not guilty to a series of allegations including assault, intimidation and possession of stolen goods.
He was due to fight charges in a defended hearing. However, in a surprising turn of events, the police prosecutor pulled the charges at the last second.

Reportedly, the evidence gathered by the police did not prove that Yakiboy had threatened to shoot and kill the alleged victim at a party, which occurred at a Persian restaurant in Sydney in 2022.
The content creator was originally arrested on November 23 after a dawn raid on his house uncovered a whopping £16,732 hidden inside his shoes.
But despite raising suspicion, he successfully claimed that the rolled-up notes had come from flogging racy snaps online and his personal training business.
Consequently, lawyer Abdullah Reslan expects his client to receive every last penny back.
Upon hearing the news that the charges were dropped, the social media star burst out of court with a beaming smile across his face. Mr Reslan told NCA NewsWire that his client was “very pleased with the outcome”.
Coming from a martial arts background, the 34-year-old chose not to focus on his sporting endeavours, but to instead flog naughty photos of himself online.
Charging fans a £10.60 monthly subscription fee, the controversial character has made a fortune.
However, despite his court win, he's still not out of the woods yet. He will return in December to fight a charge for a street fight, which allegedly occurred between him and another notable bodybuilder.
