A Bieber event at a Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, NY, ends with five people sent to the hospital for minor injuries and one arrest after fans become unruly. James Roppo of Island/Def Jam Records is charged with “endangering the welfare of children and obstructing governmental administration” for not sending a Twitter message asking the 3000 fans to leave. Bieber’s team cancels the event and he posts a Twitter message to fans, saying that the police would not allow him access to the mall, and they had threatened to arrest him if the singer did not leave. Island Records apologizes in a written statement.
