Justin Bieber

Teen star Justin Bieber caused near riots in front of Macy’s in New York City on Thursday while launching his new fragrance “Someday.”

The incident, which his representative called a misunderstanding, occurred when Bieber went outside to greet his fans. The fans pushed forward through the police blockade and Bieber tried to protect himself, pushing away an unidentified man, who turned out to be a plain-clothed police officer, who ran towards him.

“It was a momentary, well-intentioned misunderstanding,” said Bieber’s spokesman, Matthew Hiltzik, “And the event went well.”

The New York Post also reported that Moshe Benabou, 47, a member of Bieber’s security team, was arrested for not listening to police orders to rush the young star inside during the incident. He was cited for disorderly conduct.

Bieber stayed at Macy’s after the incident, taking pictures with fans, before making appearances on “The View,” “The Late Show with David Letterman” and the premiere of “Monte Carlo” to support his girlfriend and fellow teen star, Selena Gomez. Again, security had to intervene at the premiere because of an out-of-control crowd.
