Justin Bieber’s bodyguard, Hugo Hesny, was arrested for stealing a paparazzi’s camera.

A member of Justin Bieber’s security team was arrested after stealing a camera from a paparazzi photographer yesterday afternoon in Sandy Springs, according to a report from the Sandy Springs Police Department.

Hugo Hesny, 32, is charged with felony entering auto after he broke into the car of photographer Jason Winslow, who was trying to take photos of Bieber while he was at the Sandy Springs Fun House on Roswell Road. After Hesny confronted Winslow at the game center, the photographer left and was followed by Hesny and a contracted limo driver (who was arrested, but not charged) in an Escalade. The Escalade stopped Winslow’s car in a nearby parking lot, which is when Hesny took the camera from the car.

The Escalade then went to the home that Bieber is currently renting in North Atlanta. Bieber was not involved in the incident.
