Justin Bieber's High-Speed Paparazzi Chase Case Now with Los Angeles City Attorney's Office (PHOTOS)
Justin Bieber's latest unfortunate brush with the paparazzi has now landed on the desk of the Los Angeles City Attorney.
The high-speed chase case is under investigation to determine whether charges should be filed against the photographer involved in the incident with the pop star.
The 18 year-old “Boyfriend” singer was cited for allegedly reaching speeds of around 100 mph during the chase along a Los Angeles freeway on July 6.
Subsequently, Bieber filed a harassment complaint against one of the paparazzi with the California Highway Patrol (CHP), who has now passed the case to the Attorney’s office, Celebuzz confirms.
So will Bieber be facing charges too?
Spokesperson for the City Attorney, Frank Mateljan, confirmed that his office has indeed received information from the CHP, but said a decision over charges against any of the parties involved has not yet been reached.
“We have received information with the CHP and we continue to work with that agency as we review this case,” Mateljan told Celebuzz.
When asked if the photographer would be charged under California’s new anti-paparazzi law -- that cracks down on paparazzi who endanger people while following celebrities -- or whether Bieber is also facing charges, the spokesman said: “No filing decision has been made at this time."
Another case involving Bieber and a photographer is currently with the District Attorney’s Office, which is reviewing whether to charge the pop star with assault.
The case is investigation allegations by a photographer in May claiming the pop star struck him after he took photographs of the singer and girlfriend Selena Gomez at a Calabasas, Calif. shopping center.
