FILE - In this Sept. 8, 2011 file photo, singer Justin Bieber attends the Fashion Night Out Dolce & Gabbana event at the Dolce & Gabbana store in New York. A spokeswoman for Bieber says there is no truth that the singer fathered a baby by a woman who has filed a paternity suit against the teen heartthrob.

A Los Angeles police commander says his department could investigate an alleged sexual tryst between an underage Justin Bieber and a now 20-year-old woman because it violates California's statutory rape law.

Cmdr. Andrew Smith said Thursday that no report has been taken about the October 2010 incident at Staples Center. However, police could look into the matter after various media outlets reported Mariah Yeater filed a paternity suit earlier this week against Bieber.

Yeater had just turned 19 when she says she and Bieber, then 16, had a sexual encounter after one of his concerts. Bieber's camp denies he is the father of her baby boy, born in July.

California law states anyone who has unlawful sex with a minor and not more than three years older is guilty of a misdemeanor, which carries up to a one-year jail sentence.
