Justin Bieber’s Manager Scooter Braun Arrested

The My World 2.0 promo trail just got a little lonelier for Justin Bieber. The 16-year-old pop sensation’s manager Scooter Braun was arrested today by Nassau County police on charges of reckless endangerment and criminal nuisance stemming from the stampede that occurred at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island last November, where Bieber was expected to sign autographs. Ten thousand fans at the event began to riot, causing the cancellation of the gig.

The New York Times reports that, at the time, Braun was asked by police to send messages via Twitter saying that the event was canceled. Though he claims he sent two tweets within seven minutes, prosecutors are saying Braun’s messages didn’t appear until two hours later.

As for Justin Bieber’s thoughts on the whole matter, you need look no further than—where else?—Twitter, where there’s now even a #FreeScooter hashtag:

“You’ve got my total support @scooterbraun Wish you were here in Chicago with us #FreeScooter”

If found guilty, the Times notes that Scooter Braun could face up to a year in prison. Gotta love technology!

    You to admire Scooter's dedication to his client. He'll do anything to keep Justin in the news, even jail time.

    I think it is compleatly wrong for someone to arrest now I am not a fan of justin bieber at all I think that he is a self obsessed human being in which has let the power of all his fans go to his head!! But that is just my opinion.
