Bieber faces arrest after alleged Brazil graffiti incident

Justin Bieber faces arrest after he was allegedly caught spraying graffiti in Brazil.

Police officers reportedly paid a visit to the mansion the singer has been renting in Rio De Janeiro in an attempt to quiz the 'Boyfriend' singer after he was photographed defacing the side of a luxury hotel in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

According to civil police chief Antonio Ricardo, officers tried to locate the 19-year-old pop star at his residence following the incident, but he had already left the country, meaning he could now be arrested next time he enters Brazil.

Graffiti is a punishable offence in Rio de Janeiro and can carry a jail sentence of between three months and one year.

Bieber had been accompanied by his bodyguards and a group of friends when he drew a series of cartoon-like images, and scribbled phrases such as 'Beliebers 4 life' and 'respect privacy' on the wall of the private property in the upmarket area of Sao Conrado.

According to reports, local newspaper photographers attempting to take pictures called police after reportedly being attacked by members of Justin's entourage.

One paparazzo claims his clothes were ripped off his body by the 'As Long As You Love Me' singer's security, while another complained his car was pelted which bricks ripped from the cobbled pavement.

Bieber allegedly stuck up his middle finger and shouted 'suck my d**k' to photographers trying to photograph him in the act.
