Woman asleep in Bieber's rented Ga. home arrested

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) A woman found sleeping in a bedroom of an Atlanta-area home rented by pop star Justin Bieber told officers that she had come to the house for the singer's birthday party and realized she was too late for it, according to a police report.

Qianying Zhao, 23, of nearby Doraville was found at the home shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday and charged with criminal trespass, Sandy Springs police said. The house is owned by music producer Dallas Austin and is being rented by Bieber, police said. Ashley Austin, 20, lives there and came home to find Zhao in one of the bedrooms.

``Austin said that she did not know Zhao, and had no idea how she got into her house,'' the report states.

Police say Zhao told officers that she claimed to be a friend of Bieber's, and had entered the unoccupied home through an unlocked door.

``She said that she met him on the Internet `Twitter' and was visiting him for a birthday party,'' the police report states. ``She realized that she was too late for the party, so she decided to wait there for him.''

Police say Bieber's party had been held earlier in the week at another place.

Zhao was handcuffed and taken to an Alpharetta jail. It wasn't immediately known whether she has an attorney.

It was the second time in eight days that police were called to the home on Northside Drive, just north of Atlanta.

On Feb. 25, a photographer said his camera was stolen as he tried to take pictures of Bieber at the Sandy Springs Funhouse family entertainment complex. A Bieber bodyguard, Hugo Hesny, faces a felony charge in that case. Bieber was not involved in the alleged theft, police said.
