A confrontation over the weekend involving teen sensation Justin Bieber is headed to the district attorney in L.A. County, TMZ.com reports.
The alleged physical encounter between the singer and a photographer will be turned over for possible criminal prosecution, the story says.
TMZ reports: “We’re told cops have already decided to refer the case to prosecutors, even though the investigation is far from complete. They have requested to interview the Biebs, but he’s in Norway now. It’s pretty typical for police to refer high-profile cases to prosecutors.”
The story reports that Bieber is a suspect in the case and may have committed criminal battery against a photographer in a confrontation that took place Sunday in Calabasas, Calif. The photographer reportedly called 911 following the fracas, but Bieber had left the scene by the time police arrived.
The photographer was reportedly taken to the hospital by ambulance, and later filed a police report in which he pointed the finger at Bieber.
Bieber could face six months in jail if he is charged and convicted, the story reports.
