Justin Bieber throws water balloons at state troopers, presumably because he can

Bieber-maryland-state-fair It's Justin Bieber's world, we just live in it. We and a couple of Maryland state troopers, it seems.

While the Biebs was "horsing around with members of his staff" before a sold-out concert at the Maryland State Fair on Sunday, said WBAL-TV, the 16-year-old reportedly chucked a couple of water balloons at officers working crowd control nearby. One balloon burst when it hit the trooper's gun belt; the other just brushed its target.

The consequences? Um, none. Not even an incident report.

As MTV points out, it could've been a serious public-safety issue had Bieber been hauled away and booked. Plus who knows -- he might've retaliated by putting the cops' cellphone numbers out on Twitter.
