American Canadian (!) Treasure Justin Bieber's physical well-being was endangered this week when his Segway failed to outrun a gawping throng of twelve year old girls. I've never been more thankful for the existence of video cameras.

The incident took place in Glendale, Arizona, where it didn't take long for Bieber's innocent meet-and-greet to turn ugly. Sadly, the pop sensation's Segway skills are nowhere near those of, say, the Woz, and the video ends with Bieber nigh trampled by the mob. I hope/assume he made it out of there alive.

Don't worry, Justin. Soon enough you'll get that driver's license, and you can leave personal transporters behind like every other folly of youth. [NY Mag]
