Cops Want To Talk
To Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is wanted by the cops after he tussled with a photographer outside a movie theater in Los Angeles over the holiday weekend. What happened?

Justin Bieber tussles with photographerOh, baby Bieber, where have you gone? Justin Bieber is all grown up now, and apparently he has that male aggression to go along with it. The Believe singer, 18, is under investigation by Los Angeles cops after a weekend altercation with a photographer.

Bieber and gal pal Selena Gomez — they didn't break up after all (yay!) — were out and about in Calabasas, California on Saturday afternoon when he aggressively approached the pap, giving him "physical injuries," according to E! News. An ambulance was called but the superstar couple left before EMTs showed up.

Come on! Bieber inflicted serious injuries on the photographer? He weighs like 100 pounds soaking wet.

The photographer is going forward with the assault complaint, though — and Bieber could face jail time. However, Dmitry Gorin, a former deputy district attorney, told The Los Angeles Times that it all depends on if the singer acted in self defense, adding that photographers often "block" in a celeb and make it difficult to move.

“Bieber could face a charge if he pushed or hit the photographer and it was not in self-defense," Gorin added. "But it is not really a jail-time offense.”

Well, that's good. Cops might have to wait to get Bieber in for questioning, though: He's currently in Europe promoting his upcoming album.

"Ok. going to board. OFF TO EUROPE! PHASE 1 of operation secret concerts! lol. OSLO first stop. See u soon....and..." Bieber tweeted on Monday.

Justin Bieber is no stranger to booze >>

"NORWAY!!! here with the team," he added on Tuesday. "Loving the people! thank u. good food too."

Doesn't sound like he's too concerned.

So true Courtney! It is so silly that celebrities go after the paparazzi when they are just adding to their fame. This is what they signed up for, so they need to deal with it or get out of the industry. There are always better ways to handle situations than with violence.

It bugs me when I hear stories about celebs attacking the pap. They wanted to be well-known and have a career where the world knew their name. Demanding fans and paparazzi come with the job, so be respectful and don't fight back. Bieber you asked for fame so you got it, if you can't handle it, then leave.

I doubt he'd face jail time either way, but I would love to see what songs he'd write from prison.

Oh Biebs. He was just being protective of his lady I'm sure! The paparazzi can be really intense, and Bieber isn't really violent, so I'm pretty sure it was in self defense. And jail time? That would be really ridiculous. On the bright side, I'm glad he and Selena are doing well!
