Gonna focus on the important stuff. the music.

So Justin Bieber Tweeted yesterday, following news breaking that the singer has been accused of battery by a paparazzi member who claims Bieber sent him to the hospital via a physical parking lot altercation outside a mall on Sunday.

Unfortunately for Justin, however, authorities aren't ready to alter their focus just yet.

This isn't the ideal time for a photo of Justin Bieber and Mike Tyson to hit the Internet.

Sources confirm to TMZ that the alleged incident will, indeed, be referred to the Los Angeles County District Attorney for possible criminal prosecution.

Police have requested an interview with Bieber, who is currently in Norway, and the investigation is not yet complete. It's also not unusual for cops to refer any high-profile case to prosecutors.

If somehow convicted, Bieber could face six months in prison. For now, though, let's focus on the music, as Justin has requested, shall we?

Listen to his latest single, "Die in Your Arms," now!
