SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (February 26, 2014) A security guard for teen idol Justin Bieber was facing a robbery charge Wednesday in Georgia after he admitted taking a photographer's camera.
Hugo Hesny, 32, faces a robbery by snatch charge, Sandy Springs, Ga., police Capt. Steve Rose said.
His bond was set at $15,000, which he was expected to post later in the day.
Photographer Jason Winslow called police at 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 said 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.
