Bieber stares ominously into space at the Sentul International Convention Center in Bogor, Indonesia in 2011.
Justin Bieber, the baby-faced 18-year old singer, has assault charges pending with the LA District Attorney. It's like hearing John McEnroe agreed with a referee after arguing a call, felt bad about it, and then baked the ref brownies.
The alleged altercation would put Bieber on par with Tommy Lee, Chris Brown and a laundry list of other celebrities, and it definitely doesn't fit the family friendly, boy-next-door image Bieber's used to sell millions of albums.
TMZ cites several witnesses who claim a lawyer approached Jose Sarros, the paparazzo pressing the charges, after the alleged altercation, and told him to file a police report and call an ambulance ... then told him he could get a lot money from the incident. But the real question is, can Sarros live with the stigma of getting trounced by the wee Bieber?
