Justin Bieber jail scare following altercation with paparazzo
Justin Bieber and his altercation case is still being investigated. If convicted, Bieber could spend 6 months in jail.The 18-year-old Canadian singer went to a movie date with Gomez at The Commons in Calabasas, California on the Memorial Day.
When they left, Bieber had a confrontation with a paparazzo who was trying to take a photo of the couple at a parking lot outside the building. When the police arrived, the couple had already driven away. The case has been referred to the L.A. County D.A. for more investigation.
According to one legal expert Dmitry Gorin, the key issue in this case is whether or not Bieber acted in self-defense. “Bieber could face a charge if he pushed or hit the photographer and it was not in self-defense. But it is not really a jail-time offense”, he told L.A. Times. Gorin also said that Bieber might be a victim of “paparazzi trap”. “These guys will often make it impossible for the celebrity to pass,” which usually leads the star to confront them.
Meanwhile, Bieber jetted off to Europe for a so-called “PHASE 1 of operation secret concerts!”
