Pop singer Justin Bieber accused of attempted robbery

Bieber Accused of Attempted Robbery
(Reuters) - Pop singer Justin Bieber has been accused of attempted robbery, a Los Angeles Police Department official said on Tuesday, following media reports that he had tried to snatch a young woman's mobile telephone.

Bieber, 20, has not been arrested or questioned, said LAPD spokeswoman Rosario Herrera. A spokeswoman for Bieber did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Detectives have interviewed the victim, who reported the alleged crime, Herrera said. The incident occurred at about 10:30 p.m. on Monday in the Van Nuys area of Los Angeles.

Media reported Bieber allegedly tried to take a young woman's mobile phone, according to Sgt. Paul McLaughlin with LAPD's Devonshire Division, which includes Northridge and other areas of the San Fernando Valley.

It was reported to police on Tuesday. No other information was available.

The Canadian singer is due to stand trial in July in Miami on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and using an expired license. In February, Bieber was charged with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto.

It would be really wonderful if either of his parents loved him enough to turn him over their knee and spank his behind which is exactly what he needs. Since he obviously never hears the word "NO" from anyone he has grown up without boundaries and his behavior will simply get worse and worse.

This is amazing, my son who is a 15 year Coast Guard vet, drives thru Canada to get back to the states from Alaska where he is stationed and gets stripped searched. Canada tears up US citizens at the border and this bum gets a free ride here in the states. I personally want him jailed and deported. Why is there no rules in this country except for honest, tax paying people. These singers get away with this stuff on a daily basis, it must stop!
