Justin Bieber accused of attempted robbery ... of a cellphone
In this week's episode of Justin Bieber's brush with the law, the pop singer has been accused of attempted robbery, police said.
It sounds worse than it may be: The alleged incident is apparently over a cellphone.
The Los Angeles Police Department didn't offer up too many details.
Police spokeswoman Rosario Herrera said the incident in question took place Monday night. The department didn't receive a complaint until Tuesday, and officers were interviewing the person Tuesday night.
Herrera wouldn't say any more.
CNN affiliate KTLA was able to tease a little bit more out of police.
The Federal Aviation Administration also is investigating allegations that Bieber and other passengers onboard a charter flight from Canada to New Jersey's Teterboro Airport interfered with the flight crew, the agency said.
None of the criminal charges facing Bieber, including the expected vandalism count, appear to threaten his freedom. Probation sentences, fines, community service and counseling are routinely given in such cases.
