It’s true. Justin Bieber, menace to society, could possibly be facing six months in jail. Of course, since all of us here are Lohanologists, we know that it won’t happen. Most celebrities who deserve jail will never see it, and if they do, it’s only for a couple of minutes. They’re far too precious for the cold, hard prison life. Besides, could you imagine Justin Bieber in prison? Yikes.
But the story is that the case of Justin beating up a photographer is going to be referred to prosecutors. Based on the knowledge I’ve gained from Law and Order: SVU, I can assure you that that means that things are getting serious.
Justin Bieber ‘s brawl with a photog over the weekend isn’t going to just disappear … TMZ has learned the case WILL be referred to the L.A. County D.A. for possible criminal prosecution.
We’re told cops have already decided to refer the case to prosecutors, even though the investigation is far from complete. They have requested to interview the Biebs, but he’s in Norway now. It’s pretty typical for police to refer high-profile cases to prosecutors.
TMZ broke the story … Bieber’s a suspect for allegedly committing criminal batteryagainst a photog in Calabasas Sunday afternoon. The photog called 911 after the scuffle, but by the time cops arrived, the singer had split.
The pap was taken to a nearby hospital in an ambulance. He then filed a police report naming Bieber as the culprit.
If Bieber is charged and convicted, he’d face 6 months in jail. But the photog faces an even worse fate — having to tell people Justin Bieber kicked his ass.
Even though we know how this will end up – no jail time, probably no conviction at all – this is interesting, isn’t it? Here’s what I think happened: Justin definitely threw some punches or some high kicks or something. There’s no other way to explain how he lost his shoes and his hat, or that raging look in his eyes. And obviously the photographer knew who he was dealing with, so I think he exaggerated his injuries in an attempt to get some of that Bieber money. That’s not far-fetched at all, is it? But then again, that theory means that the photographer was totally cool with pretending to be knocked out by Justin Bieber, and would that kind of humiliation be worth whatever money he could possibly get?
