According to TMZ, a photographer named Jeffrey Binion filed a police report June 5, claiming Justin Bieber directed his bodyguard, Hugo Hesny, to attack him and steal his camera’s memory card after he tried to take Bieber’s photo outside of Miami’s Hit Factory recording studio.
Binion claims that Hesny threw him up against a wall, grabbed him by the throat and ‘displayed a gun’ under his shirt while the other bodyguards took the memory card from the camera.
His lawyer, Russell S. Adler said, ‘Justin Bieber is now an adult, and he should act like one. He needs to learn that he cannot use bodyguards as weapons to harm innocent people. Bieber’s violent behavior toward photographers must end, and he should take responsibility for his actions.
No amount of fame or fortune justifies Bieber’s shameful and outrageous conduct. To send him that message and deter his misbehavior in the future, we will seek punitive damages against him as allowed by Florida law.’
