      SHAWANO (AP) - A two-term sheriff in Wisconsin has lost his job to a police officer who shares a last name with a pop star.

      Officer Adam Bieber defeated Shawano County Sheriff Randy Wright in Tuesday's primary election. Bieber says he was surprised that sharing a last name with singer Justin Bieber gave his campaign attention outside of Shawano County.

      WSAW-TV says Bieber's campaign signs generated some publicity from the entertainment news website TMZ.

      Bieber will run uncontested during general election Nov. 4.
