TMZ has obtained pics of the parking humiliation at the Shore Hotel in Santa Monica. A rep for the towing company tells us the car was towed because it had been occupying a 15-minute parking spot ... for several hours.
Sources tell TMZ, someone in Bieber's camp had left the car there while the singer performed at the Staples Center in Downtown L.A. ... roughly 15 miles away.
Bieber's concert kicked off at 7pm. The car was towed around 8pm and stowed away at a nearby impound lot.
We're told the car has since been picked up.
11:49 AM PT -- A rep for the Shore Hotel tells TMZ, Bieber's car was abandoned in the 15-minute parking space for over SIX HOURS -- adding, "It is Shore Hotel’s policy that if the owner of the car cannot be contacted and located, we will tow the car to safe location off-property."
