A man in Wisconsin running for sheriff shares a last name with a pop singer who has had a few brushes with the law lately, and it's getting him some attention.

Adam Bieber wants to be the sheriff in Shawano County, located 70 km northwest of Green Bay.

"A lot of people have been asking me about Justin Bieber. When I ran I did not think Justin Bieber would be a big deal in this election," Bieber told WSAW.

Bieber, who is a 14-year veteran of the force, said he doesn't know if the link to Justin Bieber will help him or hurt him in the polls. Instead, he hopes his record and his pledge to save the force money will get him votes.

Justin Bieber has recently been in trouble for egging his neighbour's house, allegedly driving under the influence in Florida, and is accused of assaulting a limo driver in Toronto.
