Bieber anti-cyberbullying video ends NY legal case (video)
MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) – A New York prosecutor has released a new anti-cyberbullying video by Justin Bieber.
The pop star recorded the public service announcement as part of a deal that resolved misdemeanor charges against one of his managers and a record executive.
In 2009, a frenzy began at a Long Island mall when more than 3,000 excited girls turned up to see Bieber sign autographs. Police ordered the event cancelled over safety concerns and Bieber never appeared at the mall. Police say Bieber manager Scott Braun and Def Jam Records executive James Roppo refused to help disperse the crowd.
Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice says Bieber made the video in the deal that dropped charges against Braun and Roppo. The record company and a management company admitted to fire code violations.
