Justin Bieber is reportedly being investigated for alleged assault at a laser tag complex in Canada.
According to TMZ, an unnamed 12-year-old boy claims Bieber hit him on Friday night during a game at Planet Lazer in Richmond, British Columbia.
Bieber was at the facility with two body guards and was playing a game of laser tag with 12 to 14 others, according to reports.
After being cornered by a group of kids who were trying to “tag” him during the game, Bieber allegedly accidentally hit the boy while running away.
A rep for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police says ”a 12-year-old boy was allegedly assaulted in a Richmond entertainment facility. The boy sustained minimal injuries.”
The rep adds: “It’s still really early and we’re speaking to a number of individuals that potentially witnessed the incident, [plus] we have spoken to the boy.”
The boy’s father is believed to have reported the incident to police.
An anonymous staff member at the tag facility told Canadian blog ZackTaylor.ca:
“The 12-year-old kid was surrounding Justin in the corner with his other little friends and shooting him during the game with their laser guns. Justin did what any other person would do during a laser tag game, and was just trying to get away from getting shot at and accidentally hit the kid while running away.”
A Bieber rep said the reports were “absolutely untrue.”
