It seems in this day and age everyone is out to make a quick buck off of an unsuspecting star – with Justin Bieber weathering his fair share of ridiculous court cases.
There was the Mariah Yeater paternity scandal and most recently a mother of a Belieber who had her $9 million case against Justin thrown out of court – but now Justin has been hit was a very serious charge.
Reports suggest that Justin is currently under investigation for assault in his native Canada after allegedly striking a woman while playing with a toy gun.
Editors at TMZ.com claim a formal complaint was filed against Justin in November (2012) by a female security guard working at the Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, where the singer was performing, after she was hit with a foam missile from a Nerf dart gun Bieber had been using while play fighting backstage with his younger brother and sister.
We wish we were joking.
The woman, whose identity has not been revealed, was so upset by the incident, she went straight to police - and now officers are looking into the ridiculous case.
According to TMZ, despite the bizarre nature of the complaint the cops are taking it very seriously and have already interviewed other venue staff over the mishap.
It is as yet unknown if Bieber will have to sit down with authorities to explain his side of the story.
This is just so ridiculous! We really feel for Justin on this one! Can you imagine actually having to explain this to the cops? Ludicrous!
