In a statement released Tuesday (May 29), the department says it's continuing the investigation into allegations that Biebs battered a paparrazzo Sunday as the photographer tried to snap pics of Bieber and Gomez. Detectives are planning to interview Bieber and Gomez, among other witnesses, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The photographer complained of pain in his upper torso following the incident and was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.

Do you think Bieber really battered the paparazzo? Or is the photog just looking for a quick buck?
