Justin Bieber

"Bodyguard" Accused

of Threatening Shopper

2/4/2013 5:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0125-justin-bieber-tmzA member of Justin Bieber's crew allegedly threatened a man who snapped a pic of JB Sunday night, and now police are investigating ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources ... Justin was shopping at a Best Buy in the San Fernando Valley when the adult male -- not a crazed tweener fan -- approached him and took the photo.

We're told the man claims someone in Justin's entourage -- someone he thinks is a bodyguard -- immediately, and angrily, told him to delete the photo ... which he did.

The photo opportunist -- who we're told is not a paparazzo -- felt threatened enough after the encounter that he called police ... but when LAPD officers arrived Justin and his posse were long gone.

We're told police took a report from the alleged victim, and plan to investigate his claim.

Justin's camp had no comment.

Wait for the lawsuit. This so called incident will have claims of emotional and mental destress. Every week their is a new hyena picking at the carcass hoping to get a morsel. Get a job. If you need more money get a BETTER job and stop trying to siphon off every celebrity you can ya sue hungry douche bags.

NO ONE CAN MAKE YOU DELETE A PHOTO, ESPECIALLY A THUG BODY GUARD, TELL THEM TO F A W K O F F .... SERIOUSLY YOU HAVE THE RIGH TO SHOOT .... IF THEY GRAD YOUR CAMERA OR TOUCH YOU THAT IS ASSAULT, KNOW YOUR RIGHTS PEOPLE OMG

Most journalists themselves are miserable and divorsed or single - there is no bigger "BAD BOY" than the media - they are under no obligation whatever to tell the truth - there are never any consequenses (legal or otherwise) when they deliberately lie, invent malicious rumors and nasty gossip!

They spend their time partying with drunken low lifes, drugs and gays - but the hypocrites demand total perfection from Justin Bieber! can anyone explain why? full of jealousy maybe?

This little creep and his "crew" are gettin to be an irritant. Somebody needs to give him a dose of reality...nothing lasts forever, but the nice celebrities have a much longer shelf life.

I'm thinkin' this lil **** has had his 15 minutes now, so it's time for him to go away and have the media stop talkin' about him, he has decided that hangin' wit da brutha's is the way to go, he is no longer the cute lil boy that all the girls were gushin' about, he is now a punk ass b*tch that stand for negativity, drug use, abusive driving skills, and so on. Too bad that he went wigger!!!

Why are so many people intimidated by this LITTLE BOY and his body guards??
I would have told the body guard to Stick it up his as
As @S... They are in a public place!! He cannot do anything to him.
Justin needs a reality check. He's not all that.

I would have refused to delete the pic - and then taken one of the bodyguard too - tellig him that, if he didn't back off or if they laid a single finger on me, I'd be suing for assault.
-
He was in a public place - neither he nor his bodyguards have the right to tell anyone they can't take photos - or 'order' anyone to delete one they took.

A total waste of police time. the moron was not even touched and he will probably sue for money.
The next headline in the media might be Justin spits on the ground proof he is a thug!
