Update:: Turns out that the man originally thought to be a disgruntled fan was actually an undercover cop who dove onto Bieber in an attempt to protect him from the crowd. His security team was unaware that the man was a law enforcement official, which resulted in a struggle. DRAMA.
Singer and perfumer Justin Bieber was tackled and knocked to the ground this afternoon by a man who jumped a barricade outside a New York City Macy’s. The teen pop star was visiting the store to promote his new fragrance, “Someday.”
Bieber fought back against the man. He was startled, but is reportedly uninjured and was able to return to his promoting duties. His attacker was given a summons for disorderly conduct.
Our sister site Gossip Cop managed to procure video of the incident. Note that the men filming use foul language on multiple occasions:
