Justin Bieber security guard, driver arrested in alleged camera theft

ATLANTA (CNN) -- One of Justin Bieber's security guards and a driver were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of stealing a photographer's camera in Sandy Springs, Georgia.

The photographer was waiting outside of a suburban Atlanta arcade that Bieber was in when the guard confronted the photographer, according to Steve Rose, a spokesman for the Sandy Springs Police Department.

The photographer left and was then followed by the bodyguard and another man driving a Cadillac Escalade, the spokesman said. The men stopped the photographer's car in an adjacent parking lot.

The security guard then took the camera from the photographer and fled to the home that Bieber is currently renting in Sandy Springs, Rose said.

A police officer stopped the bodyguard and the driver in the driveway of the home, spotted the camera and took both men into custody.

The two are in the process of being booked, Rose said. It's unclear whether Bieber was in the car when the incident happened.

A representative for the singer declined to comment on the news.

CNN first learned of the arrests on Twitter.
