Justin Bieber WANTED by Authorities?!

Yeah, you read that right. And no, not for completely ripping off JTimberlake and the rest of N*Sync for that terrible Boyfriend vid.

Biebs is wanted for questioning and is under investigation for committing possible misdemeanor battery against a photographer. WHAT?

Apparently he was involved in a somewhat minor scuffle on Sunday (May 27) after members of the paparazzi began snapping photos of him and his lady Selena Gomez, with whom he recently reunited since she was out of the country filming, in Cali.

So the love birds were taking in a movie then swarmed by the paps upon exiting. That’s nothing new, especially for Bieber, but one snapper encroached on his personal space and a fracas ensued.

TMZ reports that the pap was blocking Bieber’s car when he tried to leave, and that Bieber got out of the car and asked him to move — and when photog refused, the scuffle began!

It’s reported they got into some sort of physical altercation, and the police and paramedics were called to the scene.

Gossip Center reports that an eyewitness confirmed that “Los Angeles County paramedics arrived at the Calabasas Commons with the Fire Department and Police arriving moments later following Justin’s altercation with a paparazzo. Justin’s bodyguard arrived while the photographer received medical attention for an apparent strike to the face.”

Who know the Biebs had it in him?!

TMZ also says that several witnesses to the account say a lawyer went up to the photographer following the incident and “said he could get a lot of money out of the incident and advised the dude to call for an ambulance and file a police report.” AMERICA.

The Biebs has yet to tweet about this whole fiasco! But, in the photos, the singer lost a shoe and is visibly irritated, as she tries to calm him down.
