Justin Bieber’s bodyguard was arrested in an Atlanta suburb, Sandy Springs, on Tuesday. Initially, the bodyguard and the driver were arrested after a photographer’s $10,000 camera was found in their car by police, in the driveway of the house rented by Bieber.
The whole thing started when a photographer waited outside a building, where Bieber played games in an amusement arcade. The bodyguard apparently followed the photographer, along with another man in a Cadillac Escalade. They stopped the photographer’s car in another parking lot, near the arcade where Bieber had been.
The police caught up with the black Escalade where Bieber is renting a home in Sandy Springs. Hugo Hesny, the 32-year-old bodyguard and Terrance Johnson, the 49-year-old driver were questioned by police. The police found the bodyguard and driver in the driveway with the reported stolen camera; both were taken into custody. As of Tuesday, they were facing felony theft as the camera is worth approximately $10,000.
The singer was not involved in the incident. Wednesday, the police announced that the driver will not face charges in the incident, which occurred on Tuesday. The driver was not charged as he was an employee who was contracted to drive one of three vehicles, the Escalades, to the arcade.
The Funhouse on Roswell Road is where Bieber and his crew had been. The bodyguard confronted the photographer when he thought he had become closer than he should to the pop singer. Hesny is now facing felony theft charges for the stolen camera, which the police found in the car in Bieber’s driveway in Sandy Springs.
This year kicked off a paparazzi frenzy when Bieber was in Miami. On January 23rd, his mugshot hit the media after an early morning arrest and in one of the pics he is smiling. Does he know what is really happening? He admitted to drinking beer, taking antidepressants and being high. Later, in the jail’s holding cell, he was reportedly crying. He has been given a plea deal, which he rejected.
On Monday, it was reported that Bieber released a single, ‘Broken.’ This is the first release of a song since his arrest in Miami last month. He received quite a lot of fury over the drag racing incident, which occurred at four am in a yellow sports car. The charges surrounding him in Miami were DUI and drag racing, after it seemed his entourage blocked the road for the race to occur.
Bieber has repeatedly said, “I cannot be broken.” He is a singer and music is his thing. Is the bad boy image covering up or helping the music? His new song features rapper Blake Kelly and has words related to the media frenzy surrounding him at present time.
The singer will leave his teens behind, when he turns 20 on March 1st, this Saturday. Bieber has talent and his 2010, ‘Baby’ song passed the one billion mark on Vevo. He has moved back to Atlanta and remains in the spotlight; this time not for what he has done but his entourage instead. Justin Bieber’s bodyguard has reportedly stolen a camera worth $10,000 and that is a felony.
