It appears no matter how famous and successful Justin Bieber becomes there is no reprieve from his being confronted with scandals. Hollywood Gossip has covered his most recent legal problems in a story by Hilton Hater on March 30, 2013, Justin Bieber Battery Case: Headed for Prosecution. Authorities say Justin Bieber is likely to face criminal battery charges because of his argument with an angry neighbor earlier this week.
The incident apparently involved a confrontation with Jeff Schwartz, a 47-year old father of three, who berated Justin for driving recklessly around the neighborhood. Schwartz and his wife, along with a third witness, claim Bieber spit on his antagonist during their disagreement and that he had to be restrained by his bodyguard from going after him. Law enforcement insiders have said Los Angeles County Investigators have looked into the incident and will present the case to the District Attorney.
Another version of this story has been covered by MTV, Justin Bieber Battery Case Against Paparazzo Could Be Sent To Prosecutors. Although a spokesperson for the Los Angeles D.A.’s office has told MTV News that nothing has been presented yet, legal action may still be coming. This account of the story claims the guy Justin got into a disagreement with was a photographer who was reportedly attempting to snap a photo of Justin when a physical altercation took place between them. The photographer is said to have called 911 after the incident, but by the time the police arrived, Justin, who was with his girlfriend Selena Gomez, had already left the scene together. It appears Justin may need a good lawyer to help him out with this mess.
