23-year-old David Dowling and his buddy were busted for stealing a life-size cutout of Justin Bieber from an F.Y.E. in a Florida mall. (They still have those!?) He told the cops: "We were just having fun holding Justin Bieber hostage."

Dowling was booked for a misdemeanor; it's a good thing he doesn't face jail time:

-So, What are you in for?
-Stealing a life-size Justin Bieber cutout. You?
-Knifing three guys in the throat

On the other hand, he's now going to be known as "the guy who stole the Justin Bieber cutout" for the rest of his life. This is a prison sentence in its own right.
