Justin Bieber Could Face 6 Months in Jail If Convicted of Battery


Justin Bieber


The battery case that names the 'Die in Your Arms' singer as a suspect could be sent to prosecutors by police.

Investigation into Justin Bieber battery case stemming from his altercation with a paparazzo over the Memorial Day weekend is still on going. According to TMZ, the Canadian pop singer could face up to 6 months in jail if he is charged and convicted of the alleged crime.

The investigation is still in early stages, but police reportedly have already decided to refer the case to the L.A. County D.A. for possible criminal prosecution, which is quite common for high-profile cases. They are now seeking to question the "Boyfriend" hitmaker and all potential witnesses.

Bieber and his camp remained mum on the matter and so did his girlfriend Selena Gomez who was with him during the altercation. Instead, he released a brand new single called "Die in Your Arms" and jetted off to Europe for a so-called "PHASE 1 of operation secret concerts!"

"Gonna focus on the important stuff. the music," so Bieber recently tweeted. Without mentioning the scuffle, Gomez, meanwhile, wrote, "THANKS YOU SO MUCH to my fans for always protecting me and being there for me. I can't thank you guys enough. I'm sorry I had to rush out. Love you guys."

Bieber went to a movie date with Gomez at The Commons in Calabasas, California before having a confrontation with the paparazzo at a parking lot outside the building. When police arrived at the scene earlier, the couple had already driven away.

He is named a suspect in the case. Any witness who has information about the incident that occurred on Sunday, May 27 is asked to contact detectives at (818) 878-1808. Anonymous tipsters, meanwhile, may contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).

According to one legal expert Dmitry Gorin, the key issue in this case is whether or not Bieber acted in self-defense. "Bieber could face a charge if he pushed or hit the photographer and it was not in self-defense," Gorin told LA Times. "But it is not really a jail-time offense."

Gorin furthermore said Bieber might be a victim of "paparazzi trap." The former deputy district attorney and now a criminal defense lawyer stated, "These guys will often make it impossible for the celebrity to pass," which usually leads the star to confront them.

    Whether or not the paparazzi man did block his van. Justin Bieber had no right to attack him. He should have called the police then. There is a cost for being a celebrity. Some fans are delusional and instantly think their favorite celeb is innocent.

    They wouldn't put him with the rest of the prisoners, he'd have a private cell. Most VIP never seen other prisoners because its too dangerous.

    Um, why are celebrities legally allowed to speed to get away from the paparazzi? The situation isn't dangerous until the celebrity MAKES it that way by speeding. STFU and smile for the camera. Their overrated egos should be so lucky.

    I think the paparazzo are out of control regarding all celebraties. I understand they want the scoop, but many times the celebs cannot even move a inch due to paparazzo. I think something needs to be done about the paparazos.

    I dont think he should got to jail i mean like i would beat up paparazzi if i were him i mean seriously the paparazzi could go way to far not to be mean but they try to get celebrities angry and paranoid theres like not one place where a celebrity can have privacy so if your going to arrest justin for being stalked well thats wrong look what paparazzi is doin to him they made justin flick them off once an now hes at the point of beating them up paparazzi is goin way to far this time give the poor kid some space jeez
