Well, this is bizarre. A West Virginia man was arrested at a local middle school after he stormed into the building and demanded he be able to sing Justin Bieber hits over the school’s intercom. Say what?!
Let it be known, D’laontie Dee Lewis loves Justin Bieber and he wants the whole world to share in his joy. So much so in fact, that he actually broke into a local school not once, but twice so that he could sing the Bieb’s jams over the school’s intercom systems!
We’re as excited as the next Belieber over Justin’s new album, Purpose, being released on Nov. 13, but we’re pretty sure trespassing isn’t the best way to show one’s support. Still, that didn’t stop D’laontie from sneaking into Dunbar Middle School in South Charleston, West Virginia on Oct. 27 and attempting to take over the school’s PA system in order to sing his favorite Justin Bieber songs to the kids. D’laontie was reportedly able to enter the school by mixing himself in with the kids who arrived late between 8:30 and 9 AM. He then went into the main office as morning announcements were being read and asked to sing Justin’s “As Long As You Love Me” over the intercom, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reports.
“He asked [to sing] and I told him he could not do that,” said the school’s principal Amon Gilliam. “He looked visibly upset.”
The school was then put on lockdown for 30-40 minutes while police took D’laontie to Thomas Memorial Hospital for evaluation. He was also charged with marijuana possession as part of that arrest.
The arrest wasn’t enough to deter D’laontie from his mission however, as just a few hours later he arrested again, this time for pretending to be the “What Do You Mean?” singer at a nearby daycare! Court documents of the arrest state D’laontie asked to sing to the children “as Justin Bieber” and told the daycare staff he was Jesus. Things took a scary turn when he was told to leave and became visibly angry, proceeding to shout curses at parents picking up their kids. D’laontie was then arrested for a second time that day, being charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct before being taken back to the hospital for evaluation. We hope that he gets the help he needs this time around.
