SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) -- Police in Georgia say a security guard for Justin Bieber faces a robbery charge after he admitted taking a photographer's camera.

Sandy Springs police Capt. Steve Rose says 32-year-old Hugo Hesny faces a robbery by snatch charge. Photographer Jason Winslow called police around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday to report that his camera had been taken.

Winslow told police Hesny confronted him as he took photos from the parking lot of 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.

Hesny's attorney, Elias Hilal, says he's aware of the Georgia arrest but hasn't reviewed the reports yet.

SANDY SPRINGS, Georgia (AP) -- Police near Atlanta say they've decided not to charge a driver for Justin Bieber with any crimes after a photographer said his camera was stolen during a confrontation with the singer's entourage.

Sandy Springs police said Wednesday morning in a statement that detectives won't charge 49-year-old Terrance Johnson. They say he was driving one of three Cadillac Escalades that brought the pop star and his associates to the Sandy Springs Funhouse family entertainment complex Tuesday.

A bodyguard for Bieber faces a court date on a felony charge of entering the photographer's automobile. Fulton County sheriff's spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan says 32-year-old Hugo Hesny of Davie, Fla., is scheduled to make his first appearance at 11 a.m. Thursday in Atlanta.

Police on Tuesday said they had taken Hesny and Johnson into custody on felony theft charges.
