Rio de Janeiro - The website of Brazil's biggest news outlet has published photos it says shows pop star Justin Bieber spray painting graffiti on a wall and it says police want to question him.

The O Globo newspaper reports that photographers snapped photos of Bieber as he painted graffiti on a wall of the former Hotel Nacional in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday morning.

Defacing buildings is a crime in Brazil punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine.

O Globo says police went to the mansion Bieber rented in Rio to question him but he was not there.

Phone calls and e-mails to the police department for more details went unanswered. Calls and e-mails to Bieber representatives Melissa Victor, Nick Styne and Aaron Rosenberg were not returned.

According to the Globo TV network Bieber flew out of Brazil on Wednesday afternoon on a private jet and went to Paraguay, where he was scheduled to perform.

In the Colombian capital of Bogota, where he performed last week, Bieber upset authorities when he spray-painted graffiti on a wall along one of the capital city's main avenues while being escorted by officers in a police car.
