Justin Bieber's Bodyguards Attack Photographer in Miami, Accused of Battery and Theft

Justin Bieber is a thug.

Well ... At least lil' homie's trying his hardest.

Lately, the Biebz has been publicly beefing with ex-NFL superstar Keyshawn Johnson. He's been the subject of multiple reckless driving investigations by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. And he even allegedly spit in a neighbor's face and threatened to kill him.

Now on vacay in Miami, JB's been all about illegal underage drankin' at SoBe clubs and Biscayne nudie bars. And if that wasn't thuggish-ruggish enough ... His bodyguards have allegedly attacked a Miami photographer.

UPDATE Bieber actually fought another photographer in Miami. And it was all caught on tape. "Grab that camera! Get that fucking camera outta here!"

Yesterday afternoon, according to Gossip Extra, Justin was just tryin' to score some skate time between recording sessions at North Miami's Hit Factory recording studio ... And soon, a paparazzo showed up.

That's when the Biebz's hired toughs confronted the photographer, put him in a headlock, snatched his camera, and stole the memory card.

Miami Dade Police Detective Roy Rutland has confirmed the incident with Gossip Extra, saying: "The [responding] officer concluded that what occurred may have been a simple battery and possibly theft," adding that "the photographer can pursue this with the state attorney's office if he chooses."

Currently, we here at Crossfade are checking whether charges are actually being laid. But there are still so many other questions ...

Has JB finally spiralled totally out of control? And why is lil' homie so obsessed with this spoiled pop thug fantasy? And does Beebzy realize he's about to become the new Breezy?
