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 Springspolice said. The house is owned by music producerDallas 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 through an unlocked door of the home on Northside Drive, just north of Atlanta. No one was home.
"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 more than a week that police have responded to a problem related to the pop star.
On Feb. 25, police pulled over an SUV being used by the singer and his entourage after 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.
