ATLANTA (REUTERS) - One of pop singer Justin Bieber's bodyguards has been arrested and charged with stealing a photographer's US$10,000 (S$12,600) camera outside an arcade in an Atlanta suburb, police said on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old guard, Hugo Hesny, was outside a children's play center and party business called the Funhouse late on Tuesday when he warned a photographer that he was too close to the teenage entertainer, the Sandy Springs Police Department said in a statement.
"A confrontation ensued and the photographer attempted to leave the location, but at some point, the security guard caught up and took the camera," the police statement said.
The incident was the latest in a string of legal problems involving 19-year-old Bieber, who last month was charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and using an expired license after Miami Beach police say they caught him drag racing. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
