Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department are investigating a photographer's claims that Justin Bieber assaulted him, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The photographer reportedly drew the singer's ire on Sunday after snapping pictures of Bieber and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, exiting a movie theater at a mall in Calabasas. A scuffle ensued and the photographer called 911, but Bieber and Gomez had left the scene by the time the police arrived.

The photographer, who complained of chest pains following the incident, was taken by ambulance to be treated at a local hospital. He later filed a police report, and Bieber is now being investigated for misdemeanor battery.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
