Justin Bieber throws water balloons at cops, keeps bangs intact

Posted on

The bedazzlingly coiffed teen unicorn was reportedly “horsing around with members of his staff” outside his trailer when said water balloons were tossed at two state troopers, hitting one’s gun belt before bursting and glancing off the chest of another.

A state police spokesperson called Bieber’s behavior “inappropriate” but says they will not file an incident report or take any further action.

As pop-star scandals go, it’s pretty much that stuff that really, really boring episodes of Behind The Music are made of. But you tell us, readers—does it signal a growing sense of hubris and untouchability on Bieber’s behalf, or just ordinary teenage-boy hijinks?
