WOOD-RIDGE, N.J. -- Bergen County Sheriff's Officer Rob Mantone was stopped at a light on a Route 17 overpass near the Fiesta in Wood-Ridge when a black Escalade pulled up alongside his patrol vehicle and the passenger coaxed him to roll down his window.
"What's up?" the buzzed-cut passenger said.
"Who are you?" Mantone asked.
The 22-year-old Canadian pop star had just landed at Teterboro Airport on Sunday in advance of a trio of area shows -- at the Barclay Center on Wednesday and Thursday, and at the Prudential Center in Newark on Sunday -- after attending his father's engagement party in Toronto.
"Let's take a picture," the formerly dread-locked Bieber told Mantone.
So they did.
