Justin Bieber is wanted for questioning by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigators after a paparazzo complained of being roughed up by the young pop star at a shopping center.
The scuffle allegedly happened when the photographer tried to snap pictures of the teen idol and his girlfriend Selena Gomez, after they walked out of a theater at The Commons at Calabasas yesterday.
Sheriff Lt. Robert Wiard says the photographer in question called 911 on Sunday and complained of pain to his chest.
Robert Wiard says the photographer was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.
He says Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez left before deputies arrived, so investigators want to talk to him to get his side of the story.
During the altercation, Justin Bieber, 18, appeared angry and frustrated and girlfriend Selena Gomez appeared to be trying to reason with him.
TMZ claims that the paparazzo filed a police report, and alleges that according to law enforcement sources the police are investigating the incident as misdemeanour criminal battery.
While Justin Bieber failed to keep calm during the altercation, Selena Gomez, 19, was seen helping him retrieve his baseball cap and one of his high top trainers after they flew off during the incident.
Selena Gomez also appeared to be saying some soothing words to her beau as she chatted to him while tenderly stroking his arm to calm him down.
However the level-headed starlet did look a little concerned during the ordeal.
Meanwhile, Justin Bieber had a face like thunder as he put his shoe back on while being comforted by his girlfriend.
Justin Bieber then walked away with his head in his hands seeming somewhat embarrassed at his behavior.
The incident occurred as the pair was making their way to a cinema to enjoy a movie date.
Along with his plum-colored hat and trainers that had flown off, Justin Bieber was sporting an aquamarine T-shirt and black jeans.
And Selena Gomez looked summery in a printed monochrome maxi dress with a split up one side, which she teamed with brown sandals.
