Video After The Jump
Judging from the video obtained by TMZ, it's clear that Justin Bieber was not happy about being grilled for 4 1/2 hours in his deposition by the lawyer of a photographer who is suing the singer and his bodyguard, Hugo Hesny.
Jeffery Binion claims that he was assaulted by Hesny at Justin's request when he attempted to take pictures of the pop star outside of The Hit Factory recording studio in Miami in June of 2013. (Read the incident report here)

According to Binion, Hesney flashed his gun, threw him against a wall and choked him while he and several other bodyguards took the memory card out of his camera. As a result, Binion says he suffered mental anguish, bodily injury, pain and suffering and had to pay for medical expenses.
"Justin Bieber is now an adult, and he should act like one. He needs to learn that he cannot use bodyguards as weapons to harm innocent people. Bieber’s violent behavior toward photographers must end, and he should take responsibility for his actions," Binion's lawyer, Russell S. Adler, told TMZ at the time the lawsuit was filed. "No amount of fame or fortune justifies Bieber’s shameful and outrageous conduct. To send him that message and deter his misbehavior in the future, we will seek punitive damages against him as allowed by Florida law."
During Justin's deposition last Thursday, March 6, he was defiant. The singer cursed at a court reporter, got angry when asked about on/off again girlfriend Selena Gomez, mugged for the camera and said he, not Usher, was responsible for his success. He just doesn't give a damn in general.
