This is not a sentence I ever thought I would utter . . . but JUSTIN BIEBER is being accused of PUTTING A GUY IN THE HOSPITAL. (???)
--Here's the deal: Justin and SELENA GOMEZ were at a mall near his home in Calabasas, California on Sunday. As they were heading to their car, a paparazzi scumbag tried to take their picture.
--A scuffle ensued, and the photographer called 911. By the time police got there, Justin and Selena were gone. But the guy was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital where he was treated for pain to his upper torso.
--Police are investigating, and they want to talk to Justin and Selena.
--Now here's what witnesses had to say about the incident: The guy was blocking Justin's car and he asked him to move. When he wouldn't, Justin got out of his car and that's when things got physical.
--But get this: A lawyer who just happened to be on the scene walked up to the photographer after Justin left and advised him that he could make a nice wad of cash if he called an ambulance and filed a police report.
--Before you ask, there's no word exactly how the fight . . . or whatever it was . . . went down. Even with all these witnesses, there don't seem to be any details.
--But we do have some PICTURES . . . and it does look like Justin got into a physical altercation with the guy. Justin even loses his hat . . . and a shoe. He also has a BAD-ASS look on his face.
(--Did Justin throw a shoe at the guy? Who throws a shoe? Really?)
(--Check out the pics, along with a copy of the police report, here.) (Hollywood Life)
(--Here's a somewhat ironic video of Justin TRAINING WITH MIKE TYSON . . . just days before the paparazzi throwdown.)
