Justin Bieber successfully rocked the Maryland State Fair last Sunday night, however little did fans know that hours earlier the 16-year-old was nearly arrested.
Justin, who has quickly been regarded as quite the prankster while on tour had a little run-in with the law when one of his legendary acts went sour.
According to E! News, Justin was throwing water balloons “at people’s crotches backstage” when one got away and hit a state trooper, soaking the police officer below the belt. As you can imagine, the officer was not happy.
The cop, who was on site as a part of a crowd control unit, was reportedly ready to arrest Bieber until his bodyguard managed to persuade the officer otherwise. A Maryland state police spokesman added that Justin’s behavior was “inappropriate”, but confirmed that no incident report was written and no further action would be taken against the Canadian singer.
Phew! Talk about a close call.
