Actress Jessica Alba will not be charged over poster vandalism in Oklahoma City, can reveal.

“The decision has been made to close the case of the shark posters plastered in downtown Oklahoma City,”  police sergeant Gary Knight said. “The case will not be presented to the District Attorney’s Office.”

The Fantastic Four beauty  - who has already issued an apology over the prank – got involved with a group that plastered shark posters on electrical boxes, a bridge and a United Way billboard.

Under Oklahoma law, defacing or damaging property is a misdemeanor if the damage is less than $1000 and a felony if the damage is over $1000.

Oklahoma City spokesperson Kristy Yager said that the property damaged does not belong to the city but she estimates that they have spent between $500-$700 removing posters in the past.

An online shark conservation blog posted photos of Alba gluing a great white shark poster to the Bricktown underpass (which is a railroad property) and another photo of her posing in front of a shark poster placed on a United Way billboard.

Neither the railroad or United Way have filed a police report. It’s understood that Alba’s attorney has agreed to give a donation towards a new United Way billboard that would cost $235 to erect.

Alba, 29, has been in Oklahoma City filming The Killer inside Me alongside Kate Hudson and Casey Affleck.
