Justin Bieber Investigated in Assault

Justin Bieber was the subject of a police investigation this weekend after he was accused of assaulting a 12-year-old boy at a laser tag facility in Richmond, British Columbia. A rep for Planet Lazer confirmed that Bieber, who will perform in Vancouver tomorrow night, was at the facility the night of the alleged assault. “A 12-year-old boy was assaulted in a Richmond entertainment facility. The boy sustained minimal injuries and did not require medical attention at the time,” the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s Annie Linteau told News 1130.

However, according to TMZ, Bieber was actually acting in self-defense in the alleged assault, as sources say the 12-year-old boy was “aggressive” toward Bieber and repeatedly called the singer “faggot.” Bieber reportedly did not hit the boy but merely pushed him away, but the boy’s father, who claimed to be a lawyer, still filed a complaint with police later that day. While the investigation is still ongoing, TMZ writes that police already know that Bieber was not at fault in the incident.
