Justin Bieber

Training with MIKE TYSON

Before Pap Scuffle

5/28/2012 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



0528_bieber_tyson_videoIn an odd bit of foreshadowing, Justin Bieber hung out with Mike Tyson and got some boxing tips from the legendary fighter just days before his alleged run-in with a paparazzo.

Check out the Biebs working the heavy bag with Tyson. They posed for a pic with another guy, which Tyson tweeted with the caption, "Me, @john and @justinbieber before we started training JB"

As TMZ first reported, Bieber is now a suspect in a criminal battery after Bieber allegedly got into it with a photog in Calabasas. Cops were called to the scene -- Bieber and GF Selena Gomez had already split -- and the photog was transported to a nearby hospital and later released.

Witnesses say the pap incited Bieber and got tips from a lawyer at the scene about calling an ambulance and filing a police report.

It's so obvious, and downright desperate, how he sets up ALL of these photo-ops w/hip-hop artists and other prominent African-Americans in a pathetic attempt to give himself some street cred. Leif Garrett, Shaun Cassidy, Jordan Knight, Nick Carter, JC Chazez, ANY Jonas Brother. He's next. Justin Timberlake and Usher transitioned from teen star to adult star, but they had adult fans, not just fat, middle-America trailer park moms who listen because of their 9 yo girls. His "adult" attempt at music, Boyfriend, is falling down the charts. Next up, the tattoo shop and a DUI, and then reality tv/Dancing With The Stars.

According to Perez Hilton...a witness at the scene claimed that the photographer intentionally blocked in Justin's car with his car so he could get a better shot of Justin and Selena. He was physically holding them there in the parking lot against their will with his vehicle. If what the witness has alleged is true, Justin and Selena are the victims of a form of kidnapping. A person does not have the right to block your path or detain you without permission, as it is considered to be kidnapping under the law. He, Justin, therefore had the right to confront and stop the assailant, as this would be considered self-defense.

Funny, who would hate my last comment, save for that crooked photographer or those repping him? I have actually been on the side of paparazzi most of the time, but this is clearly a case of someone looking for a pay-off via a settlement, and thus, this whole thing is a sham, and that is what got my interest. Now, I found-out that the photographer blocked the egress of Justin and his girlfriend using a car. Really, are we asked to believe that Justin attacked this man, unprovoked, and this person could not defend himself...and had to go to the hospital, how bogus! This has fraud written all over it. The photographer is a grown man, and couldn't defend himself against a 130 pound kid, if that--and he is claiming an injury that needed an ambulance and doctors? Please! This is California's George Zimmerman, but with a camera. Once more, if you block a person's forward progress, that is illegal, and is kidnapping under the law--look at the charge in the case of the Sheriff of San Francisco, he was basically charged with kidnapping his wife, by holding her arm and preventing her from exiting the family car with their child after an argument. Well, in this case here, involving Justin, the photographer used his car, which can be considered a deadly weapon, to block the path of Justin's car to prevent him from leaving the parking space, so that the photographer could get better shots of Justin and his girlfriend. That is kidnapping, it is stalking, and it is illegal. Justin had the right to not only self-defense, but he also had the right to hold the photographer, if he wished, under citizens arrest.

I think the it's a little suspicious that there just so happened to be a lawyer at the scene. Smells like a setup either by the photog or by Justin's people. It's hard to believe that when this story first broke police where looking for Justin. How hard can it be to locate JUSTIN FREKIN' BIEBER. Are the police that stupid that they can't find him or is there something else to this story that isn't being said.
