Investigators have since been looking into claims that Bieber struck the photographer after he took photos of the couple. According to the LA Times, Bieber could face misdemeanor battery charges in the incident if LA prosecutors find that he was at fault.
The photographer complained of pain and was transported by the Los Angeles County Fire Department to a nearby hospital where officials say he was treated and released.
Investigators have been trying to interview both Bieber and Gomez. They were also trying to find out if the photographer did anything to provoke the incident.
No timetable has been set as to whether charges will be filed in this case. Bieber has not commented.
