Police in Los Angeles have opened a misdemeanor battery case after one of Justin Bieber's bodyguards allegedly scuffled with a fan who tried to take a photo of the Biebs.
TMZ reports Bieber and his entourage were kicking it at a hookah lounge in Hollywood when a starstruck bystander decided to snap a pic. The bodyguard attempted to stop the fan from taking pictures and a scuffle ensued.
The snap-happy fan called the cops, but Bieber and his people had already bolted by the time police arrived on the scene. Bieber himself is not considered a suspect in the battery investigation. Though battering bystanders seems to have become a trend in Bieberland.
Earlier this week, while in Miami, Bieber and his crew were involved in three separate altercations with picture takers, including one that was caught on tape. On the recording, Justin can be heard dropping an F-bomb and ordering his bodyguard to steal a man's photography equipment.
Not long ago, Bieber physically attacked a paparazzo in London. And he currently faces the possibility of prosecution in a separate incident, where he is accused of battery on one of his Calabasas neighbors after a fight escalated over the "Beauty and a Beat" singer's alleged reckless driving.
