Tween Justin Bieber fans lose control at NY mall
GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) --
New York police shut down a mall appearance by teen pop singer Justin Bieber after thousands of young girls showed up and got a little too wild.
Nassau County police say girls and adults in the crowd of nearly 3,000 started pushing and shoving as they waited for the 15-year-old sensation to arrive Friday at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City.
Five people were taken to hospitals with minor injuries.
Police arrested a vice president from Bieber's record label, Island Def Jam Records. They say he wasn't cooperating with attempts to disperse the crowd.
Some fans had camped out overnight for the event.
Bieber never made it into the building. He told WBLI radio that police turned him away.
Bieber's debut album, "My World," was released Tuesday.
