Where there’s trouble, Justin Bieber is sure to follow.
The 20-year-old pop tart is under investigation for attempted robbery after allegedly trying to snatch a fan’s cell phone while he was out at Dave & Buster’s with Selena Gomez Monday night (Aug. 25). Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the Biebs lunged at the guy for snapping up photos and videos of the two, to take his phone and presumably delete the footage. Security held the singer back before the singer could make contact with the fan. JB reportedly fled before cops arrived on the scene.
Now, the fan wants to press charges and Bieber is facing a slew of potential crimes including attempted battery, attempted theft (for “stealing” the pics) and attempted robbery (grabbing for the camera phone). The encounter comes at the worst time as the singer is on probation for the egging case. He could reportedly face some jail time if a judge determines that he violated his probation.
Bieber has kept in the clear since a video tape of his shoving match with Orlando Bloom in Ibiza surfaced in July.
