"Loser Keeps Bieber": Billboard bets on USA vs. Canada Olympic hockey game

It looks like the U.S. is stuck with Justin Bieber.

The freight broker company Command Transportation posted a humorous billboard on the outside of its headquarters in Skokie, Ill., wagering that the losing nation of Monday's Winter Olympics semi-finals hockey game between the U.S. and Canada had to take custody of the troubled pop star.

The Canadian team ended up winning the game in Sochi, 1-0.

On Thursday, Command Transportation posted a picture of the billboard on the company's Twitter page:

 

Bieber has made headlines lately for his repeated run-ins with the law. The 19-year-old singer is under investigation in Los Angeles County for an alleged egg-throwing incident near his upscale home in Calabasas, Calif. Bieber's residence was searched by police on Jan. 14 in connection with the case. One of his friends, rapper Lil Za, was arrested during the raid for drug possession.

On Jan. 23, Bieber was taken into custody in Miami Beach, Fla., for allegedly driving under the influence and resisting arrest.

Less than a week later, Bieber surrendered to Canadian authorities on an assault charge. He is accused of striking a limo driver in Toronto on Dec. 30.

In January, a WhiteHouse.gov petition to deport the Canadian-born singer reached its goal of 100,000 signatures, meeting the requirement for an official response from the Obama administration.
