Justin Bieber recently took part in a deposition stemming from a civil assault case filed against him by a former bodyguard, and his behavior in video released from the hearing is often extremely aggressive.
The 20-year-old pop singer was deposed on March 6 in Miami in the civil case that alleges he instructed a former bodyguard to physically assault and steal from a paparazzi photographer. The case is unrelated to Bieber's Miami Beach DUI arrest, for which video and photos were also recently released of him in jail.
