Justin Bieber - Justin Bieber Facing Police Investigation In Brazil Over Graffiti Allegations

Pop superstar Justin Bieber is under police investigation in Brazil after he was photographed appearing to illegally spray graffiti on the outside of a hotel in Rio de Janeiro.

The Baby hitmaker, who is currently on tour in South America, was snapped with his entourage seemingly defacing a posh hotel in Rio's Sao Conrado neighbourhood on Tuesday morning (05Nov13).

Members of the local paparazzi complained to police that they had been treated aggressively by the singer's bodyguards as they captured Bieber's antics on film, and their comments have prompted cops to look into whether the star had broken local laws, which ban the destruction of property. The offence carries a fine and up to a year behind bars.

However, authorities have denied reports suggesting they attempted to stop Bieber from flying out of the country on Wednesday (06Nov13) as he headed to Paraguay for his next tour stop.

The star revealed his new hobby last month (Oct13) after showing off photos of his graffiti skills online as he tagged a wall in Bogota, Colombia.

The graffiti investigation is the latest drama surrounding his trip to Brazil - he stormed off stage during a concert in Sao Paulo on Saturday (02Nov13) after he was hit in the head with a water bottle, while he was ambushed by a topless male fan during a gig in Rio on Sunday (03Nov13).

Meanwhile, a meet-and-greet session with Bieber reportedly left a group of fans infuriated after he reportedly showed up three hours late for the pricey event and then allegdly refused to interact with the kids as they posed for photos with him.
