(Newser) – Justin Bieber's troublemaking pursuits continue. The latest: Brazil police have charged him with defacing a building in Rio de Janeiro with graffiti, the BBC reports. Officials say it's "a minor offense," but he could be fined or even sentenced to a year in jail. He was caught in pictures appearing to spray-paint the wall of an abandoned hotel; the photos were published in local media. Bieber apparently had permission to paint a sports facility but ended up at the hotel instead because he wanted to avoid fans.

His time in Brazil (he left yesterday) was plagued with controversy, including Bieber getting kicked out of a hotel. And while he was there, a woman posted a video of him sleeping that quickly went viral on YouTube. Not surprisingly, rumors quickly popped up that the woman must be a prostitute, but Bieber's friends tell TMZ that's not true. Bieber simply threw a party, passed out on a couch, and one of the guests filmed him, they say.
