A photographer has accused several members of Justin Bieber's security team of attacking him in a restroom. The unidentified snapper was trying to take pictures of Bieber at a branch of American restaurant chain IHOP in California on Wednesday night (18Dec13) and alleges he was accosted by several of the pop star's minders while using the eaterie's bathroom. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ.com the paparazzo has now filed battery charges with local cops. It is the latest in a series of run-ins for Bieber's bodyguards - in November (13), security personnel for the star allegedly snatched a camera from the hands of a fan trying to photograph the Baby hitmaker during a surf lesson in Australia, and earlier that month bodyguard Dwayne Patterson was arrested for third degree assault and fourth degree criminal damage following a confrontation with a photographer in Hawaii.
