Los Angeles prosecutors are reviewing Justin Bieber's alleged fight with a photographer last month to decide if the pop star will be charged, a spokeswoman in the prosecutor's office said Wednesday.

He said Bieber attacked him as he was taking photos of Bieber and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, at a Calabasas, California, shopping center, a sheriff's spokesman said.

Bieber and Gomez, 19, left the shopping center before law enforcement officers arrived.

The photographer complained of pain and was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released, the sheriff's spokesman said.
