That’s when the photographer claims he was attacked by Bieber. 

Following the incident the paparazzo was taken to a nearby hospital then, after his release, he filed a police report calling Bieber the culprit.  Some eyewitnesses reportedly claim Bieber’s car was blocked by the photographer and that’s what sent him into a rage.  If so, that’s illegal in California and the paparazzo could be the one facing charges.
