The photog Justin Bieber allegedly hit during an incident in a Calabasas, Calif. shopping center has not lawyered up, but could an arrest still be in the works?

The paparazzo who Justin Bieber allegedly struck last weekend, Jose Sarros, is speaking out about his side of the story — and he’s not happy about reports on the situation he calls “lies.”

“I don’t have a lawyer — yet. The report that I spoke to a lawyer is a lie. But I cannot talk more about what happened,” Sarros told Celebuzz.

Sarros did, however, file a complaint against the singer with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department.

According to witnesses, Sarros was blocking Justin’s car as he was trying to leave with girlfriend Selena Gomez, 19. Sarros told the sheriff’s deputies that Justin got upset and hit him in the face.

Justin, 18, may have gotten off easy. According to Celebuzz, Sarros, nicknamed “Bruja,” has a reputation for being a karate black belt.

Sarros later complained of pain and was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated and released.

According to Celebuzz, when asked about his injuries Sarros hung up the phone.

Although Sarros has no legal counsel yet, chances are that the “Boyfriend” singer could still be arrested and questioned by the police.

Do YOU think Justin deserves to get into trouble for this or was it all a misunderstanding?
