A Chicago nightclub is in trouble with police for allowing underage Justin Bieber onto its restricted 21 and over premises.
The 19-year-old pop star is listed as an underage guest on a citation that Chicago police issued to the popular nightclub Bodi, on Wednesday.
The establishment serves alcoholic beverages and is mandated by state law to bar anyone under 21 from entering its doors.
Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection spokeswoman Jennifer Lipford confirmed Thursday that Bieber was listed as an underage guest on the citation.
She says police cited Bodi nightclub early Wednesday for admitting and knowingly having an underage person in the establishment.
Bieber performed in a concert at Chicago’s United Center on Tuesday evening.
Lipford says the citation will to go to an administrative hearing. The club faces a fine of up to $1,000.
Bodi issued a statement saying Bieber made a brief appearance to support a friend who is a DJ and was performing at the nightclub. The club said Bieber was not served alcohol.
‘Neither Justin nor anyone affiliated with Bodi broke any laws,’ the statement said. ‘We believe this matter amounts to a simple misunderstanding with local police officers.’
A representative for Bieber did not immediately have comment.

Meanwhile, Bieber apologised by phone to Bill Clinton, the former president’s office said Thursday, for cursing Clinton and spraying his photo with cleaning fluid in a New York City restaurant kitchen earlier this year.
The pop star also had repercussions from a tour stop in Chicago earlier this week when city officials said Bieber was listed as an underage guest on a citation that police issued to a nightclub.
Clinton’s office said Thursday the pop star called and ‘he apologised and offered to help the Clinton Foundation.’ Clinton’s office declined to provide any other details.
A video released Wednesday by TMZ.com shows the 19-year-old Bieber urinating in a mop bucket as he and others race through the restaurant kitchen. Before exiting, Bieber sprays the Clinton photo and drops the F-bomb in reference to the former president.
Bieber tweeted to his more than 41 million followers Wednesday night, thanking Clinton ‘for taking the time to talk.’ Bieber tweeted:
‘Your words meant alot. (hash)greatguy.’
Separately, in California, the rapper known as Lil Twist – aka Christopher Moore – was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence after being stopped while behind the wheel of Bieber’s luxury sports car.
Moore, 20, was pulled over around 3:30 a.m. Thursday on a Calabasas road leading to a gated community where Bieber lives, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore.
Moore was driving a 2012 Fisker registered to the pop star and going between 60 and 70 mph in an area that has a 30 mph speed limit because of construction, authorities said.
Investigators think Moore might have been under the influence of marijuana. Bail was set at $5,000 for the misdemeanor offense. Moore is signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment label imprint. An email seeking comment was sent to his record label.

Justin needs to remember that he is on top right now and everyone will be attracted to him and want to be around him because he is rich and famous. He should take the money and the fame out of the equation and see which friends are really there for him. He needs to surround himself with positive people who actually care about him or bad people will bring him down fast.
