Photographer suing Bieber, bodyguard
Photographer Jeffrey Binion also claims Bieber told his musclemen to grab the camera's memory card during the altercation June 5 outside a Miami recording studio.
Binion claims Bieber was behind the attack in which bodyguard Hugo Hesny threw him against a wall, clutched his throat and flashed the gun, holstered under his coat, while he and the other bodyguard took the memory card.
The photographer says he endured bodily injury, pain, suffering and mental anguish and incurred medical expenses.
His lawyer, Russell S. Adler told TMZ: "No amount of fame or fortune justifies Bieber's shameful and outrageous conduct. To send him that message and deter his misbehaviour in the future, we will seek punitive damages against him as allowed by Florida law."
