Justin Bieber's manager arrested on LI

The manager of teenage pop star Justin Bieber was arrested Wednesday on reckless endangerment and nuisance charges in connection with last year's near-riot at Roosevelt Field Mall.

Four people were hurt last November when thousands crowded the shopping mall to see Bieber. Police say Bieber's manager, 29-year-old Scott "Scooter" Braun, refused to obey them when they asked him to send out a Twitter message that the event was canceled.

Braun's lawyer, however, insists his client sent out the message within seven minutes.

If convicted, Braun faces up to a year in jail. His lawyer says Braun will plead not guilty to the charges.
