In an attempt of the police officer to secure Justin Bieber when crowd became unruly, security REFUSED to follow police orders today.
Bieber is at Macy’s for his supposed to sign autographs for fans — and the crowd nearly trampled him.
Reported at New York’s FOX 5, a man jumped over a security barricade at a promotional event at Macy’s and knocked the singer to the ground, but according to TMZ, the man in question was a plainclothes police officer.
TMZ reported that the singer was unaware that the man was an officer and Bieber’s security team stepped in. The officer reportedly cited a member of his security with disorderly conduct, but the TMZ source said both sides sorted out the mistaken identity incident and the singer returned to the event.
Justin appeared shaken by incident, but returned – holding his arm – to greet the rest of his fans.
Bieber wasn’t injured and continued signing autographs once the situation was brought under control.
Justin is in the midst of a whirlwind tour of the Big Apple. Last night, he appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman” where he delivered the Top 10 segment. Today, he appeared on “The View,” and is expected tonight at the premiere of “Monte Carlo” with girlfriend Selena Gomez.
