Justin Bieber to Face Criminal Charges For Alleged Photographer Battery?

by at . Comments

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.

Mike Tyson and Justin Bieber

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!

5'6 and 100 lbs bieber?! that photographer is a loser!


He could have handled it like an adult insted of punching the guy! The dude did it once already! He should grow a pair and get used to paparazzi, if not give up on his soon-to-be-gone career. I won't mind if he chooses the second choice.


one i root for justin because the pap dosen't need to be stalking celebuzz they need privacy to not just them i bet if justin did the same thing the pap did it would happen the same but i think justin dosen't need to go to prison or jail i love you justin bieber and selena gomez is my idol i don't write death threats i am acutually happy for you to have a good life justin your #1 girl and onelesslonleygirl

Ok hes not very big big but im rooting for him! I hope he kicked his ass! Those idiot photographers need to back off. Celebs cant go anywhere at anytime without it becoming a 3 ring circus. They get in their childrens faces, they follow them and are just intrusive. Everybody deserves peace and quiet and not to be annoyed at every second. How would you like it if you couldnt even get a burger or some TP in peace?


I honestly say Bravo on Justin if this really did happen. People seem to forget these paparazzi (and even the paparazzi themselves) that they are harrassing these people, taking pictures without permission, stalking.. Things that are against the law for normal citizens but they get away with it? Where is the justice in that? The way some of them drive while chasing after a celebrity is insane. There is a thing called privacy and permission, paparazzi need to learn it. Just because they get pictures and crap, doesn't make it all right for them to break the law. And you would be surprised what kind of pain a person can do, even justin's size, when they are in a rage.
