Gasp! Bieber? Drugs? Say it ain’t so!
Cops standing around the blonde hearthrob’s tour bus outside the Globe Arena in Stockholm, apparently detected a “strong smell” coming from inside the vehicle, People Magazine reported.
According to Swedish newspaper Afonbladet, that smell was marijuana.
Police spokesman Lars Bystrom told the AP that a stun gun was also found at the scene. The “substance,” as pot is apparently called in Sweden, has been sent to a laboratory for analysis.
The Biebz, who arrived in Finland Thursday, was unfazed.

After all this controversy over his entry into the guestbook of the Anne Frank museum, maybe he just needs to unwind.
It was the alcohol and drugs talking, not John Galliano.
That’s the defense being used, predictably, by the English fashion designer, who went on trial in Paris today for anti-Semitic rants made at a restaurant in the French capital in October and February. The comments qualify as criminal hate speech in France, where Galliano faces up to six months in prison and a fine of roughly $32,400.
Galliano, who was fired as the creative director at Christian Dior in March, has repeatedly apologized for the comments, and reportedly entered rehab after being caught on camera declaring, “I love Hitler.” He described himself in court as “a recovering alcoholic, a recovering addict,” and hopes, in his lawyer’s words, to “rebuild himself professionally and personally.” The designer, who is gay, denied being a bigot, telling the court, “I do not have these [anti-Semitic] views, and I have never held them.”
Looks like we’ve got true-life sequel material for “Holy Rollers,” the just-released film in which a young Orthodox Jew gets lured into drug running.
Bail was denied Thursday for Jonathan Braun, the 27-year-old Staten Island boychik accused of smuggling more than 100,000 kilos of marijuana from Canada into the U.S. — all while living with his Orthodox parents and a 90-year-old grandparent on quiet Buchanan Avenue in Staten Island, according to the New York Daily News. “Before Thursday’s bail hearing, defense lawyer Ross Kramer handed a black yarmulke for Braun to a deputy U.S. marshal, who checked it for contraband,” the News wrote.
