Has Bieber gone bad?
A fun night out in Canada seemed to go awry for Justin Bieber, as the pop star is being investigated in the assault of a 12-year-old boy. Canada's CBC News reported Saturday that Bieber, 16, was thrown out of a Laser Tag center in Richmond, B.C., after a boy complained to staff he was hit by the singer.
A member of Royal Canadian Mounted Police told UsMagazine.com: "On Friday around 5:30 p.m. we got a report that a 12-year-old boy was allegedly assaulted at an entertainment facility in Richmond. The boy sustained minimal injuries and did not require medical attention. We are continuing our investigation." The spokesperson added that no other info will be released at this time.
Bieber reportedly came to the facility with two bodyguards and was playing a game of laser tag with 12 to 14 others. Employees of the game center say that things got heated when other players began to follow Bieber around. Witnesses say the singer was heavily targeted by other players.
TMZ.com is reporting that the 16-year-old was on the receiving end of "homophobic slurs," and got into a verbal altercation with another boy, but never struck him.
