Paparazzi-free Atlanta is reportedlyJustin Bieber’s home sweet home.

The newest bad boy of music has been in Atlanta since last week, reports TMZ.com -- where he's been partying with DiddyJermaine Dupri and Rick Ross.

Bieber was seen at the Marietta Ice Center in east Cobb County last week and at metro Zaxby’s, as well as the Phipps Plaza movie theater, says AccessAtlanta.com. The Bieb’s Instagram account has a video clip of the pop star playing hockey with locals in Marietta.

"Back in my second home," he tweeted recently. "Good to be back. Focused on building up positive energy."

Two of Bieber’s musical mentors, Usher and Scooter Braun, are from Atlanta.

A Bieber backlash has been growing recently as he’s had run-ins with police. A petition to deport Bieber, on WhiteHouse.gov, has gathered more than 258,000 signatures of those who want to see the singing sensation return to his native Canada, Patch earlier reported.

This winter Bieber has mostly made headlines for scrapes with police, including an arrest last month in Miami after allegedly drag racing. Court documents said Bieber was under the influence of alcohol, pot and Xanax when police stopped him, CNN reports. The 19-year-old was charged with assault earlier in the year for hitting his limousine driver in Toronto.

And then there was the report that a chartered jet carrying Bieber and his entourage from Canada to New Jersey was so full of marijuana smoke that flight crew members put on oxygen masks, CNN reports.

Christie; You are correct when you state " He and his crew have created jobs", but mostly for Law enforcement personnel.

This loose cannon will end up in the news as dead from a drug overdose. He has no real idea about life, and the crowd he runs with is not the favorite of the police and society. Another semi talented loose cannon who is clueless about life, and the laws of society. With the state of this nation, and our troops abroad, I have no clue why this kid is news.

were do I sign?
Liz February 15, 2014 at 07:17 PM
I was thinking the same thing...before I got on here..what happened to local news and that I am going to dislike it on my FB page. I keep following the links and end up reading news from some other state now. I want to hear what is happening in Elkridge, Md. Btw, I stopped following EP on FB.

1-Again, how is this Novato/Marin local news? 2-Yes, deport Beiber to the north for stupidity and arrogance but continue to welcome those illegal aliens from the south who bring with them violent drug gangs. Would Bieber be deported is his name was Jose and not Justin? What happened to equal treatment under the law? I know, the law is not politically correct, so ignore it.

Hmm, alcohol (though an extremely small amount), marajuana, drag racing. Sounds like we need to ship half of our teenage boys to Canada.
Linda Lee February 16, 2014 at 12:36 AM
(JennyCurlyLox) Half our teenage boys arn't Canadian citizens, so we can't ship them to Canada. (extremely small amt. of alchohol) He's still underage!! Half our teenage boys arn't teenage superstars that know they can influence other young beiberbopper tweeners. There's a big difference. By the way it's spelled Marijuana
Smokey Bear February 16, 2014 at 03:46 AM
Yeaaa!! I signed that petition!!! What a little brat he is & thinks he is G_D or that no rules apply to him, or that he must be courteous to neighbors. & this Beaver/Bieber character is on drugs & driving, his performances lately suck, he can't even perform anymore, all smoke & mirrors, he doesn't even try to lip sync anymore, he is a loser, go back to Canada with all the other draft dodgers!
Tom Hollman February 16, 2014 at 06:21 AM
Drugged up ballbouncers and crap like this is what the young emulate We are headed down the tubes.
Joeseph Biff February 16, 2014 at 08:44 AM
There's a saying in the "entertainment" biz.: There's no such thing as bad publicity.All this stuff keeps him in the spotlight,which in turn helps him sell out more concerts and sell more of his crappy"music"
Federal Reporter February 16, 2014 at 09:20 AM
the reason this kid is so messed up ... just look at who is around him
Melanie Shag February 16, 2014 at 09:54 AM
If he is here on a "Work VISA", you can not use up government money and resources by committing crimes and breaking our laws...he needs to be sent back. If a US citizen went to Canada and broke their laws...they would have been sent home the next day.
Joeseph Biff February 16, 2014 at 09:57 AM
I think he wants to be black.Or wishes he was.

With your website being so user unfriendly, along with stories like this Bieber crap, and the exclusion of the County Mug Shots, all have made it easy for me to decide to delete my link to you under my favorites folder. I will check back on your site in a couple months(if it still exsists) to see if you are headed in a better direction. The deletion from your site of the mug shots is a deal breaker for me. Your competition has a much more navigable site for just reading the news. Thanks for a few good years anyway. I saw some people I knew behind bars that I will always keep an eye on thanks to the "shots".
Rollo Tomasi February 16, 2014 at 09:58 AM
The reason this kid...no...young adult is messed up is because he had/has no adults (parents) to guide him successfully into society...
Christopher Thom February 16, 2014 at 10:42 AM
I don't really care one way or another about Justin, but these comments are hilarious!!! Most of you sound like an uptight old man yelling at a teenager, "You young punks with your loud music, running with a bad crowd, smoking dope. You're what's going wrong with this country. Well....You and them lazy immigrants." Thankfully in this country (and especially this city) there's no shortage of artists and rebels.

Concerning the deportation petition, add Senator Ted Cruz's name to the petition.
Tony February 16, 2014 at 11:23 AM
Deport him to Toronto,Mayor Ford would love him
Local February 16, 2014 at 12:23 PM
This little turd is fast on Vanilla Ice's trail for "where are they now"....maybe he can get a gig doing payday loan ads with MC Hammer.
Joeseph Biff February 16, 2014 at 09:12 PM
Tony,I'm sure the two of them would hit it off. Imagine all the crack they can smoke together!!
Jim Eastwood February 17, 2014 at 06:53 AM
DID YOU EVER NOTICE ???? Bieber's Picture LOOKS Just Lie ADAM LANZA's ?????? Think about that !!!!
Tom Holleman February 17, 2014 at 12:12 PM
VERY OLD NEWS!!!!!!!!!
Grumpy Old Man February 17, 2014 at 02:16 PM
Patch - All the (word rhymes with rap and defines the genre) fit to put in your toilet. This ranks with the gem about the adult pajama party at Krazy Kidz in New York. Sad there isn't any real news to report in the world.
warren blum February 17, 2014 at 02:45 PM
needs his canadian a$$ kicked
Joe Renda Sr. February 17, 2014 at 04:11 PM
Nothing I hate more than a Wannabe. This little punk, brat, of a "white boy" needs to look in the mirror and realize that it doesn't matter how long he hangs around with black guys, he will ALWAYS be WHITE. We need to send this little piece of trash back from whence he came. We have more than enough teenage scofflaws in the US, let Canada deal with his little boy antics.
Ken February 17, 2014 at 04:15 PM
Hey Biebs, how about investing some quality cash for a cause you enjoy. The MIC needs some real help with upgrades and renovations and upgrades. The UGA IceDawgs could really benefit from a good size donation for the new ice in Athens.
Shryn Franklin February 17, 2014 at 07:54 PM
Brian White February 15, 2014 at 04:54 PM Yet Obama's illegal Kenyan uncle is allowed to live in the Boston area. I could have sworn this story was about Justin Bieber. Suffering from Deranged Obama Syndrome, huh? LOL You need help. Take your meds.
TheDoctor1963 February 18, 2014 at 01:45 PM
It might be paparazzi free, its not Police-free you freak. And while ur there, why dont you get your driver's license renewed. Make yourself useful. I have a feeling even Atlanta will tire of him very quickly.
Peg February 19, 2014 at 03:49 PM
This immature KID needs to be sent packing before he kills someone. Canada raised him, let Canada keep him. We have enough homebred selfish, entitled lunatics already.
Mac February 19, 2014 at 04:14 PM
Don't fret Bieber. You will always have a home in the Seasides on the Jersey Shore. When our local officials are not burning down outdated welfare-ridden boardwalks for FEMA bucks, robbing Army/Navy stores during storm emergencies or gouging tourists with parking tickets for more vacation memories, they walk the boardwalks at night as a street gang handcuffing single defenseless visitors and beating them to a pulp at police headquarters under our Governor's protection program from prosecution. Yes Justin, it's your perfect cover. No one will even know you are here.
