Justin Bieber

Clash w/ Plainclothes Cop

6/23/2011 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A member of Justin Bieber's personal security team was cited for disorderly conduct today after the singer had a frightening run-in with an undercover cop in NYC ... but it was all one MAJOR misunderstanding.

Bieber was signing autographs outside of Macy's when the crowd became unruly ... and a plainclothes police officer rushed to help the singer.

Problem is -- Bieber didn't know the guy was a cop -- so when the cop got close to Justin ... Bieber got defensive thinking he was a crazy fan.  A member of Bieber's security team immediately grabbed the cop and tried to pull him away.

The cop quickly identified himself -- and cited the security team member for disorderly conduct.

The security team should be forced to pay for their ignorance. Their client deviated from their plans & the resulting conflict should have been in their emergency plans. The police who get assigned to these celebrity jerks don't deserve to get any hassles or maintaining order or having to deal with private security that obviously don't know what they're doing. Charge them all, convict them & let Bieber compensate them for his stupid decisions. Too many celebrities get left off the hook for this stuff. Respondent Superior Harvey - Good legal term to explain to the public.

seriously?! u guys r really saying that Justin Bieber should be trampled to death? You know its really sad when jealousy gets sooo out of hand that the poor person ur hating on should be killed! cuz he is singing, doing what he loves! how immature can a person be?! even if u arent jealous, it probably means ur an adult. Thats even worse that ur wishing physical harm to a KID! I feel bad for the cop, JB's fans r CRAZY INSANE! but.....i would get defense if a strange man was tackling me...LIKE ANY ONE ELSE!

who cares    

HAHAHA a male 40 year old Bieber fan wearing a 3 piece suit??? This was just poor planning by both Justin's security and the police. They should have meet before the event to plan out what will happen when things get unruly and so that they know the guys in suits are police.

We already know these 12 year old girls get unruly when biber the queer makes a appearance

who cares    

hahahah 40 year old male Bieber fan in a 3 piece suit. If this was done right Justins security should have met with the police before all this took place. They should have known that a thousand 12 year old girls are going to act unruly

it is so sad to see the jealousy toward someone who you losers don't know. He is not TRYING to entertain you so why do you care...othe than the knowledge that at age 17 he has already earned far more money than you ever will, and gotten laid ar more than you ever will. That kind of jealous will consume your lives.
