SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — In a story Feb. 25 about the arrest of a bodyguard for Justin Bieber, The Associated Press reported erroneously, based on incorrect information from police, that the singer's driver was arrested and charged with stealing a photographer's camera. Police told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the driver, 49-year-old driver Terrance Johnson, was detained by police but later released and never charged. SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) — A security guard for pop singer Justin Bieber has been arrested near Atlanta and charged with stealing a photographer's camera. Sandy Springs Police Capt. Steve Rose said in a statement that Bieber was at an entertainment complex north of the Georgia capital Tuesday evening when 32-year-old bodyguard Hugo Hesny got into a confrontation with a photographer. Hesny said the photographer had gotten too close to the singer. Rose said Hesny followed the photographer to a parking lot and took his camera. Rose said Bieber was not involved and the camera has been recovered. It was not known if Hesny had an attorney. A driver for Bieber also was detained and questioned in connection with the incident, but he was never charged.
