LAPD investigating Justin Bieber over alleged cell phone robbery

Justin Bieber is in trouble with the law again. According to Rolling Stone on May 14, the pop star and teen idol is under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department after a woman reported an ordeal with Bieber, which resulted in aggressive behavior stemming from photos on her cell phone.

In the report first reported by TMZ, the woman, who lives in California’s San Fernando Valley, claimed that while with her 13-year-old daughter at the Sherman Oaks Castle Park, she spotted the “Never Say Never” singer and decided to take pictures. Bieber was not happy about the photo shoot opportunity and allegedly approached the woman with his entourage after she also witnessed them getting into an altercation with some other people at a batting cage.

The woman, who reported the incident to police Monday at about 10:30 p.m., said Bieber demanded to see her phone because he thought she took photos of the incident. When the woman refused, that is when Bieber allegedly reached to snatch the phone and screamed at her causing her daughter to cay.

Officer Rosario Herrea told The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday, the day the complaint was filed that detectives were currently interviewing the victim and “as of right now, no arrest has been made.” Although a spokesman for the LAPD couldn’t confirm details of the incident, the 20-year-old Bieber is again associated with behavior that has already prompted a petition to have the Canadian born singer deported.

In a year that has seen the pop star in trouble more than he has been on the charts, Bieber’s alleged robbery adds to an arrest in Miami for driving under the influence while operating a motor vehicle with an expired license and he was also investigated for vandalism in an alleged egging of a neighbor’s home. Needless to say, Justin Bieber is starting to be known more for his mug shots rather than popular magazine covers. He has yet to comment on the reported incident.
