Justin Bieber experienced some tense moments when a woman barged into his Laguna Beach hotel room. The Canadian pop star is reportedly fine, while the woman was arrested.
According to TMZ, the woman had reportedly been roaming around the hotel — and had even been escorted off the property earlier — when she suddenly burst into his room.
Bieber reportedly remained calm, with members of his security team apprehending the woman and holding her until police arrived.
“Cops say the woman, who is in her late 30s, appeared to be drunk and claimed she entered Justin’s room by mistake. She was booked for trespassing,” reports TMZ.
The Laguna Beach Police Department confirmed the incident to E! News, noting that the intruder, whose name has not been released, was arrested Tuesday afternoon.
According to police spokesman Sgt. Jim Cota, officers responded “to reports of a suspicious circumstance,” and “met with a 36-year-old woman who had been escorted out of Justin Bieber’s hotel room by his personal security.”
The woman, he added, had “spent the night partying at the hotel in a room that was not under her name,” which was “located just down the hall from where Justin Bieber was staying.”
According to Cota, the woman and her companions were escorted from the property after failing to check out. The woman “then went back in to the hotel to try get back into her room but told officers she mistakenly entered Justin Bieber’s room instead.”
Laguna Beach PD are now trying to ascertain whether she “deliberately tried accessing the room because she knew Justin Bieber was inside.”
Despite the drama, Cota said that the 24-year-old singer is “doing fine,” but “did not stick around at the hotel to speak with officers personally.”
