Justin Bieber was not attacked

There's a story going around that Justin Bieber was "attacked" outside Macy's in New York this afternoon. Not true. Amusingly enough, Gossip Cop ("Busting bad dish!") was the site that broke the false story. TMZ says:
Bieber was signing autographs outside of Macy's when the crowd became unruly ... and a plainclothes police officer rushed to help the singer.

Problem is -- Bieber didn't know the guy was a cop -- so when the cop got close to Justin ... Bieber got defensive thinking he was a crazy fan.  A member of Bieber's security team immediately grabbed the cop and tried to pull him away.

The cop quickly identified himself -- and cited the security team member for disorderly conduct.
During the "scuffle" a "visibly shaken" Bieber somehow ended up on the ground. Which is entirely believable. He's white and weighs 110 pounds. What the hell else is he going to do besides curl up into a ball and hope the guy kicking and punching him eventually gets tired? If he was a UFC fighter, it would be his signature move. "OH MY GOD, Bieber's doing The Armadillo!!! I didn't think we'd see it!!!"
