New York: Canadian singer Justin Bieber apparently caused some major mayhem in a Canadian mall on Boxing Day when he decided to do a little holiday shopping.

According to Canada’s the Record, Bieber, 16, showed up to check out sales on the Canadian holiday Boxing Day, and he was swarmed by teenage girls shopping at the Fairview Park Mall in Kitchener, Ontario.

Mayhem ensued when Bieber entered a jeans store and then a sunglasses shop, with hundreds of female fans reportedly crowding around him as he attempted to try on new frames.

“There were a lot of vases being broken and people climbing over other people and a lot of screaming,” the New York Daily News quoted Bieber fan Taylor Inder as saying.

And the “chaos” apparently required police intervention.

“I was concerned because there were hundreds of girls out there and three police officers at my glass doors, and I’m like, ‘I don’t think this is a good mix’,” the store’s manager, Sarah Pelletier, said.

Bieber later issued a brief tweet about his excursion on Twitter.

“Of course I had to join in on Boxing Day. I’m Canadian,” Bieber explained to his fans.
