The 'Boyfriend' hitmaker becomes a suspect in the misdemeanor battery case stemming from his scuffle with a male photographer in Calabasas, California.

What happened after the altercation between Justin Bieber and a shutterbug in Calabasas, California over the weekend? According to TMZ, the Canadian singer is investigated for a misdemeanor battery following the scuffle.

The male photographer involved in the fracas reportedly complained of pain to his upper torso. An ambulance was called to the scene and he was taken to a local hospital for medical treatment before being released a short time later.

Police said they wanted to talk to Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez, who was with him when the altercation occurred. When the officers arrived at the scene earlier on Sunday, May 27, the couple had already driven away.

Witnesses testified that the paparazzo tried to prevent Justin from leaving by blocking his car. A scuffle ensued when the guy refused to move away. The cameraman filed a police report after being advised by a lawyer who said he could get a lot of money out of the incident.

A representative for Bieber didn't immediately answer request for comment. He himself tweeted, "gonna focus on the important stuff. the music. #DieInYourArms hits ITUNES in less than #24HOURS - #BELIEVE."

Any witness who has information about the incident is asked to contact detectives at (818) 878-1808. Anonymous tipsters, meanwhile, may contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).

Bieber has just bought a new home in Calabasas for a reported $6.6 million. The 10,000 square-foot house, which boasts seven bedrooms, was initially listed at close to $9 million. He went to a movie date with Gomez at The Commons before having a confrontation with the paparazzo.
