Photographer Aja Oxman, who claims he was assaulted by Justin Bieber’s bodyguard on a Hawaii’s Shipwreck Beach last year, is suing the pop singer for assault and negligence.
Aja Oxman sued Justin Bieber, 20, and bodyguard Dwayne Patterson on August 20 in Los Angeles.
The photographer is seeking unspecified damages for injuries and mental and emotional distress that he claims are a result of being attacked on Hawaii’s Shipwreck Beach in November.
Aja Oxman’s suit accuses Justin Bieber of ordering Dwayne Patterson to force Oxman to hand over his camera memory card.
Dwayne Patterson was arrested on suspicion of assault after confronting Aja Oxman, who shot photos of Justin Bieber jumping off a cliff.
According to court records, Dwayne Patterson pleaded no contest to harassment and criminal property damage and has paid $6,000 in restitution to Aja Oxman.
