Photog makes battery allegations against Bieber

Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department are investigating claims against pop star Justin Bieber by a paparazzo who says the 18-year-old got into a scuffle with him Sunday.

According to the department, the photographer in question told deputies that he'd been taking pictures of Bieber at the Commons at Calabasas when he got into a physical altercation with the star. Bieber was reportedly with his 19-year-old girlfriend, Selena Gomez, at the time.

The photographer also said Bieber and Gomez left before deputies arrived at the scene.

According to the sheriff's department, the pap complained of pain and was taken to a hospital for treatment. He was later released.

TMZ reports that detectives want to speak with Bieber, Gomez and anyone else who witnessed the alleged incident.

Although Bieber hasn't publicly addressed the report - and his reps haven't responded to requests for comment - he did tweet after midnight Monday that he was "gonna focus on the important stuff. the music."

    Bieber doesnt seem to be too smart. An idol with no brains is not likely to survive. Or they will be an addict. Like Marilyn Monroe or James Dean or Jean Harlow or Freddie Prinze or Selena or Whitney or Brittany Murphy or Heath L etc etc on and on. he needs some leadership and he needs it NOW

    Really? Really? This trouser stain beat up someone? I didn't even bother to read the article. Justin B. already left a black eye on the music industry by making quite possibly the worst music in the history of, well, music. My dog passing gas has more melody than a Beiber tune. No, really. A good "Alpo toot" from Rover sounds quite pleasing compared to "Baby baby".

The other rumors flying around are (1) an attorney saw the whole thing and presented his card to the popped paparazzi, and (2) Beebs had just come from a boxing lesson with Mike Tyson, who he's best buds with (allegedly).

      Not all these so called photographers are near celebrities to simply take pictures. Some intentionally instigate a reaction from people in the public eye. Some do it to get a controversial picture, some do it because they are looking for a dramatic reaction so they can have a "pay day". Most celebrities are aware of this. Apparently Beiber is not. But he soon will be.

Bieber is a lousy musician and his success is merely a sign of how messed up society has become. Punching a photographer was the closest thing to male behavior that this androgynous freak has ever shown.

    1. If you get beaten up by Justin Bieber, YOU should go to jail for being a total p u s s

AND why did the "beebs" take a $200,000.00 car and chrome plate the entire car? He said "so the paparazzi can't take flash photos of him"... it seems the flash cameras reflect back and blind them.

    Hmmm. After really looking at some of the other things that have been happening lately, I would say that the behavior of papparazzis is the same as bullying. I think people like Julia Roberts would also agree. She is livid about the way these guys behave around her and worst yet, her kids. I also very much recall the papparazzis that hounded Princess Dianna and aided and abetted in her death and the death of 2 other people in the car.

    I find it so funny that all the people who dislike Bieber comment on his inability to fight/do anything that isn't girly. If you even bothered to read an article or two on his life, you'd find out that his dad was an MMA fighter. So, Justin definitely knows a thing or two about throwing a punch.

      We sometimes genes can skip a generation and they certainly did there! My dad was a fighter pilot and I am scared to death of flying! Believe me the girls he hangs with could take care of him with a slap!

      Hello, if you read his life story, his father does not even know him. Not until he became well know did he start coming into his life. For what? Hello his money!!!!!!!!!!

      The envy is overwhelming. The kid was blessed with looks, hes a multi instrumentalist, can dace, sing and look good doing it and can pull it off live. I don't care for his music, I'm a 50 year old white guy, but Bieber knows who his fans are and does it for them. If you think this kid is actually even aware of these nothings, think again; He's living the dream, you haters are not.

      They criticize because their own lives are pathetic and worthless and they are jealous of those who, for whatever reason, have gained wealth and popularity. If I was rich and famous I certainly wouldn't care what some halfwit on CNN wrote about me.

    Now if all Celebrities would follow suit and punch this ambulance chasing wannabe photographers, Diana crash scenario would be a thing of the past. But hiding behind the law and following people to the bathrooms with camera so you can pay your bills must be a satisfying job, especially if you can cry to the Law everytime you feel your space threatened.

    Bieber may have to shell out a few bucks to make this one go away, assuming he did attack the photog. Like them or not, if it's a public place, they have every right to take pics and be annoying.

    But no one has the right to physically push anyone else around.

    The "pap" thing has long been out of control. It's simple to fix: before these idiots can take a picture of a celebrity engaging in their private lives for publication, they must get permission. If they don't get the OK, they should be fined/prosecuted. Also, there should be a buffer area, i.e., say, 10-20 ft, within which a paparrazzi is NOT allowed to enter for the express purpose of taking pictures. If they do, then it should be treated as an invasion of privacy, intimidation, whatever, and they shouldbe subject to prosecution. People have NO idea how disturbing these photogs can be.

    The police should charge the photographer with the offense of "getting beaten by a girl." The photog's name should be revealed so no one hires him in the future, and everyone can mock him for getting beaten up by a girl.

    I agree, Anna. There should be an exemption to the battery laws for paparazzi. I think tasers should be used on 'em. If a celebrity is just trying to walk around somewhere and their path is constantly blocked by these people, then tasers should be deployed to clear the path. Or at least if Bieb had a huge group of photographers with him that could continuously block the intentions of paparazzi photographers it might help the pap realize how totally annoying it is to not be able to even walk anywhere without having your path blocked.

    Biebs is alot tougher then anyone knows, I grew up with him in Stratford Ontario Canada and we used to spend our time jamming to Slipknot songs, smoking green bud and cranking some metal. Biebs knew that the money was in pop and it was his oppurtunity to become famous so he sold out, but who can blame him...He is doing great, banging Gomaz and is treated like a king. We used to head to Kitchener Ontario for knife, small arms and hand to hand combat training, Biebs can take care of himself.
