(Newser) – Justin Bieber's life of (alleged) crime continues: "He has been accused of attempted robbery," a Los Angeles police officer tells the LA Times. A woman says that around 10:30pm Monday, Bieber thought she was taking pictures of him at a miniature golf course and grabbed her phone, though he didn't ultimately keep it. Detectives interviewed the woman, but have not yet spoken to Bieber. No other official details are available, but TMZ spoke to the woman, and her story doesn't make Bieber sound too good.

She says she saw Bieber and his entourage get into a fight with some other guys at the batting cages near the putt-putt course, and when she took out her phone, he demanded she hand it over—then grabbed it out of her purse when she refused, which ended with the two of them wrestling over it. Bieber ultimately got the phone, but couldn't unlock it, so the woman showed him she had not taken any pictures and said her 13-year-old daughter just wanted to meet him. At that point, she says, Bieber screamed, "You're humiliating yourself in front of your daughter. Why don't you just get out of here," and her daughter started crying.
