Justin Bieber bodyguard arrested in Sandy Springs

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- A bodyguard for Justin Bieber was arrested after allegedly stealing a photographer's camera Tuesday in Sandy Springs.

According to Sandy Springs police, the pop star had rented out the Sandy Springs Funhouse Arcade on Roswell Road. A bodyguard, identified as 32-yar-old Hugo Hesny, warned a photographer that he was too close to Bieber.

A confrontation ensued, according to police, and the photographer, 38-year-old Jason Winslow, tried to leave. The bodyguard caught up to him, grabbed his camera and put it in an Escalade, police said. The bodyguard told the driver, 49-year-old Terrance Johnson, to return to the place where Bieber is staying.

As the Escalade was pulling into the home, a Sandy Spring police officer stopped it and recovered the camera. Hesny was arrested and charged with felony entering auto. His bond was set at $15,000. His next court date is March 12.

According to the incident report, police also confiscated five bongs and some marijuana, but no charges were filed.

"Apparently there was not enough to charge," said Sgt. Ronald Momon of the Sandy Springs Police Department. "It was pretty much an insignificant amount of marijuana."

The camera was valued at $10,000, according to police.


Bieber was not part of the incident, police said.
