Justin Bieber would likely not do well in prison — even a Canadian one — so we'll be watching this one closely.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police are investigating an incident at a British Columbia laser-tag facility in which the pop star is accused of hitting a 12-year-old boy.
The incident occurred late Friday afternoon in the coastal town of Richmond at Planet Lazer Tag. Bieber was reportedly in town for a concert at Vancouver's Rogers Arena.
Quoting anonymous sources, TMZ.com reports that Bieber became frustrated when the unidentified boy wouldn't stop shooting his laser weapon. According to the site, Bieber yelled, "That's enough," and the boy responded with a homophobic slur.
A shocked Bieber replied, "Excuse me?" and the boy repeated himself and put out his hand, TMZ reported. Bieber pushed the hand away and walked on.
The Vancouver Sun, meanwhile, quoted a different source, who said Bieber accidentally hit the kid while running from laser fire.
Whatever happened, the kid's parents called police soon after, but nobody was arrested, and neither Bieber or the boy suffered any injuries.
