Justin Bieber's Manager

Tweet Crime?

3/24/2010 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Justin Bieber's manager turned himself in to police this morning -- and it's all over unlawful Tweets ... allegedly.

Tweet Crime

Scott "Scooter" Braun surrendered on two misdemeanor charges -- reckless endangerment and criminal nuisance -- stemming from an incident at a mall in November.

The incident which triggered the matter occurred last November at the Roosevelt Field mall when fans got out of control and at least one girl was hospitalized.

We're told cops asked Braun to Tweet that the event had been canceled but they say he refused to do so.

Braun faces one year in jail if convicted.

UPDATE: The Bieb himself is finally weighing in -- Justin just posted the following Tweet: "You've got my total support @scooterbraun Wish you were here in Chicago with us #FreeScooter"

UPDATE 3:05 PM EST: Braun has entered a not guilty plea for both charges in Nassau County Criminal Court in New York.

I wonder if this person is responsible for hiring people to tweet Justin so he's always trending on twitter? There's no way Justin's little fans can spend 24/7 doing it.

Scooter is a marketing genius. I hope he did not break the law.

Either we're not getting the whole story, or the cops and DA are power-tripping morons.

What TMZ failed to say was that the manager actually tweeted that they were on the way to the mall (even after bedlam had broke out) instead of saying the event was cancelled.
