    We're going to go out on a limb and agree with Justin Bieber—it probably is pretty hard to keep track of all the things written about him every day.

    Unsurprisingly, the 20-year-old took to Twitter this evening to break his silence about being the target of a police investigation, this time regarding a woman's claim that Bieber grabbed her cell phone and yelled at her when she tried to snap a picture of him at a mini-golf complex in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

    "It is hard to defend myself and my privacy every moment of the day. Then to see rumors. The truth will set u free," began the first of a string of tweets, this one coming with a screengrab of a TMZ report stating that an employee at the arcade insisted that Bieber never tried to rob anybody.

    "My mom raised me to be kind to others," Bieber continued. "I get judged, harassed, and I try to take the high road. Sometimes it isn't easy. But we keep trying...I will continue to be the man my mother raised. I love people and I will try to be kind even when things are not fair. Don't believe rumors...Thanks for those who stick by me and those that help me grow everyday. I love you."

    He went on: "Off to have fun and smile with friends. I'm human. I feel. I hurt. But I got thick skin too. I can handle it. I love you."

    Bieber ended with the tease, "What is to come," along with a link of an Access Hollywood interview with Epic Records chief exec L.A. Reid in which he hints at a future project with the Canadian artist.

    Los Angeles police confirmed to E! News last night that they were investigating an alleged incident involving Bieber that occurred on Monday evening. It was later reported that the location was Castle Park, a mini-golf course complex that also has batting cages and an indoor arcade, in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

    As of this morning, the LAPD had still just interviewed the alleged victim and had not yet spoken to Bieber. No charges have been filed.
