Bieber Mall Case Dropped
There has been a resolution to the famed 2009
Thousands of girls showed up at a Long Island, N.Y., clothing store to see the teen sensation sign autographs.
The mayhem resulted in charges of child endangerment against manager Scooter Braun after he allegedly refused a police order to tweet that Bieber would not appear. Def Jam Records exec James Roppo was arrested after he apparently refused to help disperse the crowd.
Prosecutors told a judge May 6 they are dropping charges against both men. In return, Bieber has agreed to record a public service announcement on cyberbullying.
The record company and management company pleaded guilty to fire code violations.
Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice said she was happy with the outcome.
“To have someone like Justin Bieber, who is emulated by kids his age across the world, educating people about the dangers of cyberbullying, that’s invaluable,” she told Newsday.
