Justin Bieber Photog Beatdown Going to Prosecutors
tmz ^ | 5/29 | tmz

Posted on 05/29/2012 12:02:35 PM PDT by RummyChick

Justin Bieber's brawl with a photog over the weekend isn't going to just disappear ... TMZ has learned the case WILL be referred to the L.A. County D.A. for possible criminal prosecution.

We're told cops have already decided to refer the case to prosecutors, even though the investigation is far from complete. They have requested to interview the Biebs, but he's in Norway now. It's pretty typical for police to refer high-profile cases to prosecutors.

TMZ broke the story ... Bieber's a suspect for allegedly committing criminal battery against a photog in Calabasas Sunday afternoon. The photog called 911 after the scuffle, but by the time cops arrived, the singer had split.

The pap was taken to a nearby hospital in an ambulance. He then filed a police report naming Bieber as the culprit.

If Bieber is charged and convicted, he'd face 6 months in jail. But the photog faces an even worse fate -- having to tell people Justin Bieber kicked his ass.

If I were on the jury he’d be acquitted.

Story I heard was the photog had positioned himself against the door to Bieber's car and refused to move so Bieber could get in the car. Bieber proceeded to grab the front of his shirt, pull him away from the car and give him none to gentle push to chest which knocked him down. Probably not the wisest course of action, but understandable considering the situation. Also probably not the best course of action to quickly leave the scene instead of waiting for the police and jump on a plane bound for Norway, that just made him look guilty.

The biggest question for me is, "Doesn't a international superstar of Bieber's stature have a security guard or ten??? I mean, heck, he risks getting mauled by a pack of teenage girls just stepping out in public. You would think he would have security so he doesn't have to get his hands dirty in situations like this."

Any comparative stats on these two violent street fighters? You know, height, weight, reach, etc.

This could make an interesting Reality Series: Photo Island, where the “Ear Ring” fights the “Lens” to tune of a different song every week.

I understand that the “Beab” had a weapon. It was a “man-purse.”

The celebs live in this glass bubble of their own creation. They wanted their fame and everything that goes along with it, and that includes the paparazzi. They cannot complain about their loss of privacy when all their lives they have striven to become a public icon and get their face in front of every camera in sight.

In any case, assault is a crime........

From seeing the pictures , I would say it’s just another illegalk mexican looking for a paycheck.

I wish I could get on the jury.

I would find the photographer guilty of attempted theft by extortion.

You must need something like that to tote all your entourage and accoutrements around in, If you're a rock/movie star.

Sort of a Bieber version of The Grinch's paraphernalia wagon?

Are you mental? What gives any camera stooge the right to distrupt anothers life; is Zimmermann deserving of the camera princess’ intrusion because he was made a mark by Obama’s look-alike son? You have no sense, get some sleep for God’s sake.

Me, too. I read an article in Forbes that says he's been a sharp venture investor with his money, and that he's a self-taught musical prodigy from a single-parent home.

Getting back on topic, it looks to me like the photog was begging for an ass-kicking. Blocking your access to your own car while extorting a photo is a form of assault. Maybe the photog saw more money in a lawsuit than in just another photo, anyway. He just fell right down, it seems.
