After the alleged incident, the photographer called 911 but by the time police had arrived Justin Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez had left.

An ambulance was called after the pap complained of upper torso pain, and he was released from a local hospital after being examined.

He filed a police report naming Justin Bieber, and police are investigating it as a misdemeanour battery and want to speak with Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, plus any other witnesses.

Several witnesses say the pap was blocking Justin Bieber's car, and a scuffle broke out after Biebs asked the man to move out of the way.

They also claim a lawyer approached the photographer and advised him to call for an ambulance and file a police report because he could get a lot of money out of the incident.

While Justin and his reps have been silent over the alleged incident, the pop star has been busy promoting his latest single, 'Die In Your Arms' (set for release today) as well as thanking his fans for their continued support via social networking site Twitter.

Justin tweeted: "my fans have always been there. from day 1. they are there for me thru everything. they lift me up. so...im there for them. always. #FACT [sic]"
