In this week's episode of Justin Bieber's brush with the law, the pop singer has been accused of attempted robbery, police said.
It sounds worse than it may be: The alleged incident is apparently over a cellphone.
Police spokeswoman Rosario Herrera said the incident in question took place Monday night. The department didn't receive a complaint until Tuesday, and officers were interviewing the person Tuesday night.
The gossip website TMZ said it spoke with a woman who identified herself as the one who filed the complaint:
The woman said Bieber and his crew "got into an altercation with some guys" at a batting cage in Sherman Oaks on Monday night, according to the website.
Bieber saw her reaching for her cell phone, and demanded she hand over her phone so he could delete any photos she may have snapped, TMZ said.
When she refused, he reached into her purse and grabbed it, the woman told the site.
