Justin Bieber might have another hit on his hands. But not the kind that he would prefer.

Celebrity photographer Jason Nicholas tells E! Online that he was assaulted by the 16-year-old "Baby" singer's bodyguard last Friday, after the shutterbug tried to snap a pic of the Biebs.

According to Nicholas, he was innocently standing outside of New York's London Hotel, waiting for Kylie Minogue to emerge, when he noticed Bieber's security crew leaving the hotel, followed shortly thereafter by the singer himself. Nicholas claims that he politely moved in to get a photo—at which point, Biebs' bodyguard "snapped." The photog recalls,

"He shoved me up against the SUV. He was super aggressive and it happened right in front of Bieber, who got right in the car, but I got some usable pics out of it."
Adding insult to injury, Nicholas claims,
"When Bieber got into the car, he put his mouth to the glass and let out a roar, like a primal scream, with his mouth wide open, it was so odd."
Maybe he was just urgently inquiring where the nearest restroom is?

Nicholas claims to have suffered back pain following the altercation, and was transported via ambulance to New York Presbyterian Weill-Cornell Hospital, where he was diagnosed with a strained muscle and released.

The photographer filed an assault claim against the bodyguard with the NYPD, but isn't planning to file a lawsuit—yet.

    Kenny was just trying to protect justin. something worse couldve happened if he didn't. Lots of people have acted innocent but did cause trouble and he didn't want that to happen again... so he was just extra cautious this time. u never wanna take chances ya know??
