Justin Bieber Sued by Photographer Following Memory Card Incident

A photographer takes legal action, claiming that the 'Beauty and a Beat' singer ordered his bodyguards to attack him, while the others forcefully took his camera's memory card.

A photographer who was involved in a feud with Justin Bieber's bodyguards took legal action against the 19-year-old superstar and one of his bodyguards, Hugo Hesny. According to TMZ, the photographer, Jeffrey Binion, sued Bieber because the singer allegedly ordered his bodyguards to harass and threaten him after he tried to take Bieber's pictures at Hit Factory's parking lot.

Binion said that Hesny threw him to the wall following Bieber's order. Hesny also allegedly grabbed Binion by the throat, and "displayed a gun" under his shirt while other bodyguards grabbed his camera to take the memory card. Because of the incident, Binion suffered from injury, pain, mental anguish and incurred medical expenses.

Binion's lawyer Russell S. Adler told the site, "Justin Bieber is now an adult, and he should act like one. He needs to learn that he cannot use bodyguards as weapons to harm innocent people. Bieber's violent behavior toward photographers must end, and he should take responsibility for his actions."

"No amount of fame or fortune justifies Bieber's shameful and outrageous conduct. To send him that message and deter his misbehavior in the future, we will seek punitive damages against him as allowed by Florida law," Adler continued.

On Saturday, June 8, a report that Bieber and his group harassing another person in a lounge emerged. Someone, who reportedly was not a paparazzo, allegedly had a heated argument with Bieber's bodyguards after he tried to snap a picture of the singer. The police came to the Hollywood lounge after they received a call from the alleged victim, but Bieber and his group already left.

According to the site, the police are going to investigate the incident for misdemeanor battery. However, Bieber is not considered a suspect and his role in the incident is unclear.
