Brazilian cops to charge Justin Bieber in graffiti incident

Posted on

Justin Bieber has been charged by Brazilian police for spraying graffiti, People reports.

The South American country was a stop on Bieber’s current world tour. The embattled pop star had permission to tag a graffiti wall in Rio’s Olympic Village. However, Rolling Stone reported that in order to avoid his fans, he decided to tag another wall of an adjacent hotel. According to a police statement, “Authorization granted by the city did not extend to other locations,” so Bieber will be charged with “defacing a building or urban monument by graffiti or other means.”
