SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) — A security guard and driver for pop singer Justin Bieber have been arrested near Atlanta and charged with stealing a photographer's camera.

Sandy Springs, Ga., Police Capt. Steve Rose said in a statement that Bieber was at an entertainment complex north of the Georgia capital Tuesday evening when 32-year-old bodyguard Hugo Hesny got into a confrontation with a photographer who he said had gotten too close to the singer.

Rose said Hesny and 49-year-old driver Terrance Johnson followed the photographer to a parking lot and took his camera.

He said the two were caught as they were pulling up to a house Bieber is renting in the area. Rose said Bieber was not involved and the camera has been recovered.

It was not known if Hesny and Johnson had attorneys.
