Justin Bieber
's pals Lil Za and Lil Twist acted like Lil Thugs by attacking a paparazzo in Miami last June --  so claims the photog who's suing Bieber and a bodyguard.

Photog Jeffrey Binion says in his depo -- obtained by TMZ --  he was confronted by Za, Twist and 2 of Justin's bodyguards after taking pics of Justin outside of a recording studio.

Binion says Za demanded the photog's camera ... threatened to break it ... then tried to wrench it from his hand. Binion claims the struggle lasted 3 to 5 minutes.  As for Twist ... Binion says he was egging Za on.

Binion also claims one of the bodyguards threatened him with a gun.

Binion says he was strong armed into deleting the photos ... because a bodyguard had him in a choke hold.

He's now suing Bieber and that bodyguard ... claiming he's injured and mentally screwed up.

Bieber is scheduled to give his version in a deposition next month ... and he's already asked a judge to keep his testimony under wraps -- away from the public.

There was a time when juvenile delinquents like all three Lil's would be sent to reform school or a juvenile hall and made to do time.
Today they are free to terrorize adults and neighborhoods.

The gun charge is contradicted by eyewitnesses according to some old reports; if that is so what else is exaggerated by this person?

Is that the event where Bieber was on the voice recording giving all these instructions? If so, I heard no once else on that tape egging him on, it was all Bieber.

Like always, Bieber is trying to cover up the evidence against him. The very reason he is there now is because he tried covering it up, and now he wants to do it again, taking away the camera from the public.

He will never learn his lesson because he is another overpaid celebrity who gets away with everything.

Its also the same thing as Bieber making people sign contracts who enter his own, threatening million dollar lawsuits if they don't do what it says.

The ONLY reason you would do that is if you had something to hide, like something illegal.
