MN Man Sentenced for Role in Civil Unrest Looks a Lot Like Bieber
A Brainerd man sentenced for his role in the lighting the Minneapolis Third Precinct police headquarters on fire last May bears an uncanny resemblance to "Yummy" singer Justin Bieber.
On Wednesday, 23-year old Dylan Shakespeare Robinson was sentenced to four years and must pay $12 million restitution for his role in civil unrest following the murder of George Floyd. Last May, according to federal charges and as reported by the Star Tribune, Robinson broke past a fence meant to keep protesters out and lit a Molotov cocktail. Another person threw the cocktail toward the precinct shortly after the crowd began shouting, "Burn it down, burn it down." While the Brainerd man's actions have certainly generated some less than positive words from others, some have been more interested in Robinson's uncanny resemblance to...Justin Bieber.
"Justin Bieber did it?" commented one on Twitter.
"Legit thought this was a Justin Bieber story…" commented another.
"We gonna ignore the fact that this is Beibs?" asked a third.
"Biebs let himself go...." joked another.
While not the one responsible for burning down the Minneapolis Police Precinct, the "Holy" singer hasn't escaped the press for his own troubled past. In July 2017 police said Bieber struck a paparazzo with his truck while trying to leave an event in Beverly Hills. in 2016 Bieber allegedly punched a fan in the face. In January 2014 he was charged with driving under the influence, which he settled by pleading guilty to careless driving and resisting arrest. In 2013 Bieber made headlines after allegedly being spotted leaving a brothel in Brazil.
"To collect [Robinson's] restitution," reports Star Tribune, "prosecutors use tools including wage, bank account, and retirement plan garnishments in addition to a monthly pay plan that is typically set by the judge while a defendant is on supervision."
Is it just us or does the Brainerd man who was arrested really look like Justin Bieber?
