Man Charged For Going To Schools And Trying To Sing Justin Bieber To Kids
A West Virginia man was charged after going into a school and a daycare trying to sing Justin Bieber songs.
The New York Daily News reports D'laontie Dee Lewis was able to enter Dunbar Middle School Tuesday morning by mixing himself in with kids who arrived late between 8:30 and 9.
He then went into the main office as morning announcements were being read and asked to sing Justin Bieber songs over the intercom.
Principal Amon Gilliam said Lewis, who reportedly had not taken his prescribed medication, was "visibly upset" when his request to sing Bieber's "As Long As You Love Me" was reportedly denied.
A police officer stationed at the school, which was put on lockdown as a precaution for 30 to 40 minutes, handcuffed Lewis and took him to Thomas Memorial Hospital for an evaluation.
Lewis was charged with marijuana possession, due to a small amount of marijuana he apparently had on him when he came into the school.
At about 2:15 pm that same day, Lewis left Thomas Memorial Hospital and walked about half a mile to Kiddie Kollege Daycare at First Church of the Nazarene.
Court documents state Lewis asked to sing Justin Bieber songs to the children and told daycare staff he was Jesus. Lewis grew angry when he was told to leave, so once he was outside the building, he proceeded to shout curses at parents picking up their kids.
According to WCHS-TV, officers repeatedly asked Lewis to cease the profanity before arresting him. Lewis now faces charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct.
He was taken back to the hospital to be evaluated once again.
