Following an alleged altercation with a photographer last month, Justin Bieber flew out of the country for scheduled performances. However, California police say he is now wanted for questioning and they want to speak to him regarding the incident when he returns to the States this Friday. Bieber is accused of assaulting a member of the paparazzi at a shopping center in Calabasas, California. His girlfriend, Selena Gomez, was with him at the time.
The photographer was treated at a nearby hospital and then released, but he is considering filing a civil suit against the singer. Los Angeles-based lawyer Anahita Sedaghatfar told Fox News: “[Bieber] will definitely be called in for questioning. This is a high-profile case which has gotten a ton of media attention… the police will have to get his side of the story in order to determine whether to dump the case or turn it over to prosecutors.” However, she added that the paparazzo is likely just looking for “monetary compensation,” saying, “It is unlikely there will be any criminal charges filed… We’ve seen this time and time again, celebrities being accused of minor crimes like this.”
