The undercover cop claimed he intervened with the crowd when the fans became too rowdy and Bieber's security needed assistance.

Bieber reportedly suffered a minor injury and was left shaken when the undercover cop jumped over a barricade and knocked him to the ground.

Bieber was greeting fans outside the Manhattan landmark when the incident happened. He was ushered back inside the store, where the promotional event continued.

"I didn't think this would happen. We were just curious, but that's terrible," another witness told the ABC affiliate.
