Los Angeles - Justin Bieber's bodyguard insulted a police officer in Dubai.

A team of security guys had to jump to the 19-year-old pop star's aide to flatten a fan who grabbed him on stage in the United Arab Emirates city last Sunday night.

'Rude comment'

During the scuffle, one of his minders aimed a rude comment at a member of Dubai's Police's VIP protection squad and after taking offence, the officer reported the incident to his bosses and the bodyguard was summoned to the station to answer questions.

The unnamed man was facing three years in jail for his behaviour but after realising the consequences of his actions, he apologised for what had happened and the officer withdrew his complaint.

A police spokesperson said: "Our officer didn't reply at the time of the offence but made a complaint at the police station."

The bodyguard apologised

We asked the bodyguard to come in and he seriously apologised for his behaviour and expressed his regret for what happened, claiming he was under pressure due to the concert.

"The policeman accepted and waived the complaint. Bieber also expressed his appreciation for the policeman's behaviour, who acted in a civilised way even though the guard insulted the officer verbally."
