Justin Bieber Could Face Battery Charges

Justin Bieber is the target of a battery investigation.

Pop idol Justin Bieber could be facing battery charges stemming from an incident with a photographer last month.

Los Angeles prosecutors haven’t set a timetable for filing the charges, and legal experts say he could be charged with a misdemeanor. Investigators are looking into a photographer’s claim that Bieber hit him after he snapped a shot of Bieber with his girlfriend Selena Gomez at the Commons at Calabasas shopping center.

The photographer complained of pain and was treated and released by doctors.

Detectives want to interview both Bieber and Gomez about the incident before taking further action. So far, no comment from the pop star.
