Bieber Egg Man Arrested

Matthew Komljenovic, 17, was arrested over an incident at Justin Bieber’s April 29 show in Sydney when someone threw six eggs at the stage.

None of the projectiles hit their target, and Bieber and his band continued to play.

Facebook and YouTube clips of the failed attack received 1.3 million hits, while postings suggested Komljenovic was the Eggman.

The social media profile alerted management of Acer Arena to contact New South Wales Police.

Ten members of the proactive crime team barged into Komljenovic’s family home May 5 in Sydney’s Bondi Junction at 7 a.m., and pulled him out of bed.

After being questioned, the teenager was charged with break and enter, trespass and malicious damage. Police claim he sneaked into the venue through the roof. They also seized laptops, hard drives and a mobile phone.

Komljenovic was granted bail and will appear in Parramatta Children’s Court June 2.

“We took this matter very seriously, which is why we asked police to investigate,” Acer Arena GM Paul Sergeant said in a statement. “We are pleased with the progress of these investigations and congratulate the police on their swift action in identifying and charging the alleged offender.

“But now that this matter is before the Courts, we are unable to comment any further at this time.”

Meanwhie, reports in the Australian media suggested that Bieber’s two shows in Japan, on May 17 in Osaka and 19 in Tokyo, are in jeopardy. Members of the singer’s road crew allegedly refused to travel to the country, fearing exposure to radiation in the wake of the nuclear meltdown.
