RIO DE JANEIRO -- RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — The website of Brazil's biggest news outlet has published photos it says shows pop star Justin Bieber spray painting graffiti on a wall and it says police want to question him.

The O Globo newspaper reports that photographers snapped photos of Bieber as he painted graffiti on a wall of the former Hotel Nacional in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday morning.

Defacing buildings is a crime in Brazil punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine.

O Globo says police went to the mansion Bieber rented in Rio to question him but he was not there.

Phone calls and emails to the police department for more details went unanswered. Calls and emails to Bieber representatives Melissa Victor, Nick Styne and Aaron Rosenberg were not returned.
