When Justin Bieber was signing autographs outside the Herald Square Macy’s as part of the highly anticipated launch event for his new perfume, an undercover cop noticed the crowd was getting rowdy and rushed to help Bieber.
Except Bieber mistook the plainclothes cop for a crazed fan and put up his dukes (some reports say he was knocked down by the charging man).
Bieber’s security grabbed the cop, who immediately identified himself and cited the tackling team member for disorderly conduct. Bieber, who possibly sustained minor injuries, was reportedly “startled and shaken up” following the incident.
After The Jump: A very poor quality, NSFW video of the altercation; will update with better video once one comes online – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2UdqH6_-Wc&feature=player_embedded
