Just when things were starting to calm down with him, Justin is in hot water again with the LAPD after being involved in a dispute with a woman and her 13-year-old daughter at a mini golf complex on May 12. Police are trying to determine if Justin committed attempted robbery when he wrestled the woman’s phone away from her to delete any pics she had taken of him, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVE details.
Justin Bieber apparently just doesn’t know when to stop. As if he wasn’t on the LAPD’s bad side already, the police are now looking into an altercation he had with a woman at Sherman Oaks Castle Park on May 12 when he allegedly stole her phone because he suspected she was taking photos of him, and he may be charged with attempted robbery.
Justin Bieber Steals Fan’s Phone — Attempted Robbery?
A woman and her 13-year-old daughter were enjoying their night at Sherman Oaks Castle Park, a mini golf and batting cage complex in L.A., when she saw Justin and his entourage taking part in the activities. Justin and his friends were involved in a minor altercation with another group of men when the singer noticed this woman going for her cellphone, she revealed to TMZ.
Justin allegedly turned his attention towards her and demanded that she give him her phone to see if she’d taken pictures. When she refused, Justin reportedly went into her purse himself and took it. The woman and Justin then began wrestling over the phone, and she claims that he ripped it out of her hands.
The singer then allegedly forced the woman to unlock her phone and prove that she hadn’t taken any photos. When the woman obliged and then explained to Justin that she and her young daughter just wanted to say hi, he reportedly responded, “You’re humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don’t you just get out of here.” That’s when the daughter allegedly started crying.
The woman lodged an official complaint regarding the horrible incident and police reportedly went to her house on May 13 to begin an investigation to determine whether a crime had taken place.
Justin Bieber: ‘Classless’ Singer Fights With Fan
For all those downplaying this altercation and chalking it up to a fan interaction gone bad, an eyewitness confirmed all gruesome details to HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
“Everything you’ve read happened,” the insider said. “Justin and his group were so rude the entire time and this place had so many kids. So many people were happy to see Justin and he was a complete jerk. Parents and kids talked about the incident after it was over and were shocked at how awful he was to the woman and her daughter. It was the definition of classless and embarrassing.”
However, a source close to Justin downplayed the incident and told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “This wasn’t a big deal, the woman didn’t stand out… There were plenty of people taking pictures, some more aggressive than others, which is totally normal. This is another example of someone making an issue where there isn’t one.”
While Justin may not be able to be charged for attempted robbery for briefly stealing the woman’s cell phone, this incident has certainly done a number on the singer’s already tarnished reputation. What do you think about Justin’s outburst, HollywoodLifers? Let us know.
