Bieber Bodyguard Indicted; Admitted He Took Camera

A security guard for Justin Bieber has been indicted on two felony charges after he admitted taking a camera from a photographer in suburban Atlanta.

Hugo Hesny was indicted Tuesday in Fulton County Superior Court. He faces charges of robbery and entering a vehicle.

Photographer Jason Winslow told police he was trying to shoot photos of Bieber outside an arcade in Sandy Springs on Feb. 25 when Hesny told him to leave. Winslow said Hesny chased him, cut him off, opened the door of Winslow’s vehicle and took his camera.

Hesny initially told police he didn’t take the camera but after officers found the camera in an SUV used by the singer’s entourage, Hesny said he wanted only to delete photos taken outside the arcade.

Hesny is free on bond.
