Justin Bieber may not be friends with Coachella security guards these days, not after being tossed from that musical festival last week, but the superstar has come a long way in his relationship with the police.
Case in point: The singer made a pit stop at Kreation Juice in Beverly Hills last weekend when a local uniformed cop made his way over to Bieber.
Unlike many times in the past, however, the officer had no interest in taking Justin into custody.
Instead, he just wanted to take a photo with the handsome artist.
Bieber, of course, has had MANY run-ins with the police over the years.
He was arrested for drunk driving in January 2014; entourage members have been cited on multiple occasions for their violent interactions with the paparazzi; and neighbors have often called 911 to report loud parties being hosted by The Biebs.
But Bieber is all about improving himself these days.
A couple months ago, as part of his journey to public redemption, Bieber picked up the $200 dinner tab for a group of officers he spotted eating near him at a restaurant.
We'd like to think of that gesture, along with the photo snapped above, as another in the long list of Justin Bieber apologies.
