A paparazzo has filed an assault report against Justin Bieber's bodyguard, accusing the man of injuring him outside a New York hotel last week. Photographer Jason Nicholas claims he was hurt as he attempted to snap the "Baby" hitmaker when the star left the London Hotel in the Big Apple on Friday, November 26.

Nicholas alleges Bieber's bodyguard became "super aggressive" in a bid to stop him taking pictures - and he was left with back pain after the clash. The snapper tells E! News, "Bieber comes out with a small group, two bodyguards, one handler and one other person. Without blocking the door I stuck my camera out with my arm and shot him. (The bodyguard) snapped. He shoved me up against the SUV."

"He was super aggressive and it happened right in front of Bieber, who got right in the car." Nicholas was admitted to the Presbyterian Weill-Cornell Hospital after the incident and was allegedly diagnosed with a strained muscle.

He was released the same day and on Tuesday, November 30, he filed an assault report with the New York Police Department, according to the website.

Heavy handedness is NOT the hallmarks of the executive and VIP protection business. Unfortunately, we see many cases where celebrities are simply hiring the wrong people to handle their security and protection needs. Are they hired simply for their physical size and stature? Have pre-employment background investigations been conducted on them? You would be surprised at how many have been in trouble with the law. Sure, they may have a black belt, military or law enforcement experience but have they ever completed a formal executive protection training program? Are they "actually licensed to perform such services? A fact check was recently conducted on the bodyguard of a female celebrity. It turns out that this bodyguard was never "legally" allowed to provide those services. Often, when an executive protection agent puts their hands on someone that is not a "real" threat, the client can and has been held liable (financially) for damages and injuries.
