Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department are investigating claims against pop star Justin Bieber by a paparazzo who says the 18-year-old got into a scuffle with him Sunday.

 

According to the department, the photographer in question told deputies that he’d been taking pictures of Bieber at the Commons at Calabasas when he got into a physical altercation with the star. Bieber was reportedly with his 19-year-old girlfriend, Selena Gomez, at the time.

The photographer also said Bieber and Gomez left before deputies arrived at the scene.

 

According to the sheriff’s department, the pap complained of pain and was taken to a hospital for treatment. He was later released.

 

TMZ reports that detectives want to speak with Bieber, Gomez and anyone else who witnessed the alleged incident.

 

Although Bieber hasn’t publicly addressed the report – and his reps haven’t responded to requests for comment – he did tweet after midnight Monday that he was “gonna focus on the important stuff. the music.” According to CNN.

Rodney King Ordered Into Sobriety Program

Rodney King

Rodney King, whose videotaped beating by police led to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor reckless driving in connection with his arrest in Moreno Valley last summer on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Under a plea agreement, King was sentenced to 20 days home detention and ordered to wear an ankle bracelet to monitor his movement. Authorities agreed to drop two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, although King was fined $500, ordered to complete a nine-month sobriety education program and placed on three years probation, according to John Hall, spokesman for the Riverside County district attorney.

King entered his plea through a court appointed public defender and was not present during the hearing.

In July, King was driving a 1994 Mitsubishi when he was pulled over by a traffic officer in Moreno Valley, about 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Following his July arrest, King told CNN he was under the influence of a “medical marijuana prescription” but denied driving while intoxicated.

According to Riverside County prosecutors, King’s blood alcohol reading was 0.06 percent, which is below the 0.08 legal limit in California.

“He was driving while intoxicated and found to have a measurable amount of alcohol in his system. However, we believe we would have been unable to prove beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury that his blood-alcohol content was 0.08 percent or higher,” Hall said. King did not respond to calls for comment.

King’s 1991 beating by Los Angeles police officers after a traffic stop left him with skull fractures and brain and kidney damage. It was captured on video by a nearby resident, and four officers were indicted as a result. Their trial the following year led to three acquittals and a mistrial in the predominantly white suburb of Simi Valley, verdicts that set off three days of riots in African-American neighborhoods.

By the time it was over, 55 people were dead, more than 2,000 were hurt, and property damage exceeded $1 billion. Two of the officers were later convicted of federal civil rights charges, and King won $3.8 million in damages from the city in a civil suit.

King was on parole for robbery at the time of the beating and has had several run-ins with the law in the ensuing years. He served a 90-day jail term in 1996 for a hit-and-run involving his wife at the time, and he pleaded guilty in 2004 to reckless driving and driving under the influence of a controlled substance.

In March, he was cited for driving without a license after being pulled over in Arcadia, California.

In a 2011 CNN documentary, King spoke to CNN’s Don Lemon about his struggle with alcohol abuse. “I’ll always have an issue when it comes to alcohol. My dad was an alcoholic, the addiction part is in my blood,” King said. “What I’ve learned to do is to arrest my addiction. Arrest it myself, so I don’t get arrested.”
