The Biebs low on battery!

Justin Bieber has landed himself in a soup as his battery case against a paparazzo could be sent to the prosecutors. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said, “Nothing has been presented yet, but there is a possibility it will be”. The Biebs might end up in court if the police decide to refer his case of criminal battery for possible criminal prosecution.

The spokesperson Shiara Davila Morales from D.A’s office told MTV News on Tuesday that nothing is presented yet but that doesn’t mean that action won’t be taken. TMZ also reported that the case will be referred for possible prosecution. The site reports according to unnamed sources that the police investigating the case have decided to refer it to the prosecutors although they are still in the middle of investigations. Allegedly Justin Bieber was involved in a fight with a paparazzo whose identity has not been revealed on Sunday afternoon in a mall in Calabasas, California. The police are interviewing the witnesses and are eager to interview the 18 year old pop star who is away for his promotional campaign in Norway. Lieutenant Margarito Robles of the L.A County Sheriff’s Department told MTV News that there’s no update on the case as of now but a large percentage of such cases are referred to the D.A where the prosecutors decide on how to proceed. Bieber is a suspect as he got into a fight with the photographer who was trying repeatedly to get a shot of him. The photographer called 911 but till the police reached the scene Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez had left. The photographer was taken to a local hospital after he complained of pain in his upper torso and was later discharged. He later filed a police report which is being investigated as a misdemeanor battery case. It is not clear as to what injuries the paparazzo suffered and what took place during the incident.

Bieber’s spokesperson had no comment on the incident and according to TMZ if convicted he could face up to 6 months in jail. However, the good news is that due to the overcrowding in L.A jails and a federal mandate to ease the overcrowding, the singer would much likely spend little time behind bars.
