Justin Bieber to be quizzed by police

Los Angeles - Justin Bieber will be quizzed by police over his alleged brawl with a photographer.

The Boyfriend singer - who is currently promoting his new album Believe around the world - was reportedly involved in an altercation with a photographer in Calabasses, California, in May, and is expected to be called in for questioning when he returns to the US.

Lawyer Anahita Sedaghatfar - who is not connected with the case - told Fox News on Wednesday: "He will definitely be called in for questioning. This is a high-profile case which has gotten a ton of media attention. The police will have to dot their I's and cross their T's for sure.

"However, Bieber is under no legal obligation to talk to the police. He likely will speak to them nevertheless, of course with his attorneys' guidance."

Little evidence

According to the legal expert, the case is unlikely to be taken further until Justin speaks to police.

The lawyer added: "The police will have to get his side of the story in order to determine whether to dump the case or turn it over to prosecutors.

"They certainly cannot press charges based on the little evidence they have now."

Teen idol Justin hit the headlines last month for allegedly striking paparazzi Jose Sarros across the face in a fit of anger.

According to witnesses, Jose was blocking Justin's car as he tried to leave with his Disney star girlfriend Selena Gomez, 19. The photographer was treated for minor injuries in hospital.

Justin, 18, declined to comment, but the Los Angeles county sheriff confirmed the case was still open.
