UPDATE:TMZ has a witness who is refuting reports that Justin Bieber tried to steal anything during a mini-golf/batting cage session in Sherman Oaks. The site spoke with someone who says she's an employee at Sherman Oaks Castle Park and claims that she saw the exchange between Bieber and the woman who was taking pictures.
According to the witness, the woman was an instigator by being too aggressive and ignoring requests by security to stop taking pictures. The employee says that while Bieber was upset, he never got physical and didn't try to grab the phone that is at the heart of the accusation. She notes that surveillance video would support her version but that the incident was probably too far away from the security cameras to show much.
Sources close to Bieber say that he got angry because the flash kept distracting him while he was trying to bat.
ORIGINAL: Justin Bieber just can't keep him out of trouble. The embattled pop star is currently facing charges on DUI in Miami, assault of a limo driver in Toronto and has vandalism charges about to be filed in Los Angeles, and now he can added alleged robbery to the list. THR reports that the LAPD is looking into accusations of attempted robbery in an incident that happened on Monday.
An LAPD spokeperson said, "Detectives are currently interviewing the victim. It was reported at 10.30 p.m. Monday night to our Devonshire location and occurred earlier in the day in the Valley. As of right now, no arrest has been made and detectives are currently interviewing the victim."
The report claims that Bieber was at a mini golf and batting cage facility in Sherman Oaks, California where a woman and her daughter apparently tried to take a pic of Bieber. He then snapped, snatched the woman's phone and screamed at the two, causing the girl to cry.
