Charged For Vandalism
Rio de Janeiro police are charging Justin Bieber for spraying graffiti on city walls.
Local media outlets showcased images of the 19-year old pop star tagging a wall, which in Brazil is punishable by a fine or up to one year in jail. However Rio de Janeiro authorities gave Bieber permission to spray paint on a sports facility.
According to members of the Bieber camp, he chose to do his art on a nearby abandoned hotel to avoid his fans. Brazil’s civil police forces were not impressed and since then have charged Bieber with “defacing a building or urban monument by graffiti or other means.”
