Chess is a Crime II: Justin Bieber Arrested for Looking Like Magnus Carlsen

Following the story about the NYPD arresting and charging seven men for playing chess in a restricted area comes this sensational story from LA...

Justin Bieber: Arrested for looking like a chessplayer

The photo shows teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber being arrested in LA yesterday. But it turned out to be a case of mistaken identity. An embarrassed LAPD spokesman later explained: "You see, he looked just a tiny bit like notorious pawn-pusher Magnus Carlsen. We are cracking down on chess in the USA and the police have orders to take immediate action if they spot one of these so-called 'grandmasters' on the street. We can't apologise more for suspecting Justin might be a chessplayer."

P.S. Actually Justin is a chessplayer - see this story.
