ATLANTA – Authorities say a security guard for Justin Bieber accused of taking a photographer’s camera has been granted bond.
Fulton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan says a judge set Hugo Hesny’s bond at $15,000 on a felony charge. Flanagan says the 32-year-old will likely be released sometime Wednesday.
Photographer Jason Winslow called police around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to report his camera had been taken.
Winslow told police Hesny confronted him as he took photos from a parking lot by the Sandy Springs Funhouse arcade. Winslow says Hesny chased him as he drove away, cut him off, opened his vehicle door and took his camera.
Police say Hesny initially denied taking the camera but later said he took it to delete the photos.
