Another day, another instance of Justin Bieber being an asshole – and potentially a criminal (again). This time around, he’s the subject of a potential attempted robbery case. Basically, he tried to steal a woman’s phone once he saw her taking video on her phone of him getting in a major fight with some dudes at a batting cage.
The woman tells TMZ … Monday night she was at the Sherman Oaks Castle Park — a complex with miniature golf and a batting cage — when she spotted Justin and his entourage playing a little mini golf and then hitting balls.
The woman says Justin and his crew got into an altercation with some guys at the batting cage when J.B. noticed she was going for her cellphone to take pictures. She says Justin demanded to see her phone so he could erase any photos. She says she refused to fork over the phone so he then went into her purse and grabbed it.
The woman says she began wrestling with Bieber, trying to get her phone back. She says he ripped it out of her hands but couldn’t accomplish his mission because the phone was locked.
We reached out to Bieber’s camp before posting this story … so far, no word back.
She says Justin gave her the phone back and demanded that she unlock it to see if she took photos. She obliged and showed Justin she had taken none. She says she told Justin she and her 13-year-old daughter just wanted to say hi, and Justin screamed, “You’re humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don’t you just get out of here.” Her daughter started crying.
She says at that point Justin turned and started screaming at someone else.
The woman later complained to police and the LAPD are now investigating. Is this actually an attempted robbery? Eh, I suppose within the confines of the law it might be, but I don’t think I’m a good judge of this situation because I just want this kid to be punished for being an absolute dick.
