Pop star Justin Bieber's bodyguards are accused of roughing up a paparazzo who was taking photos of Bieber skateboarding at a North Miami recording studio Wednesday afternoon, Gossip Extra has confirmed.
Miami-Dade Police Detective Roy Rutland said an officer responded to a report of an assault taking place outside The Hit Factory on 149th Street.
The allegations are that the Bieb's bodyguards choked the pap and took the memory card out of his camera.
"The officer concluded that what occurred may have been a simple battery," Rutland said. "Now, the photographer can pursue this with the state attorney’s office if he chooses."
