justin bieber csi 01 500 Justin Bieber accused of battery: Paparazzo wants to press chargesA paparazzo is claiming that Justin Bieber, 18, battered him outside a Calabasas, Calif., mall when he tried to snap photos of the Bieb with girlfriend Selena Gomez.

The incident went down on Sunday outside The Commons mall where, claims the photographer, a “physical altercation” took place after he tried to take Justin’s picture. The photographer called 911 complaining of pain in his upper torso, but by the time cops arrived Justin and Selena were long gone.

According to TMZ, law enforcement officials now want to talk to Justin, Selena and anyone else who may have witnessed the exchange. Cops are reportedly investigating the incident as a misdemeanor battery.

The moral of the story? Don’t hang out at the mall if you’re Justin Bieber.

P.S. This is the second day in a row that Bieber and Gomez — who had been suspected of breaking up — were spotted together.
