Did Justin Bieber Beat Up a 12-year-old At a Laser Tag Center?

Friday night, Justin Bieber got kicked out of a laser tag center in Richmond, British Columbia after a 12-year-old claimed Bieber hit him. Justin and his bodyguards showed up and allegedly proceeded to rough up the joint. Oh, baby.

According to the CBC, Richmond police "are investigating an assault involving a 12-year-old-boy at an entertainment facility. The boy suffered minimal injuries."

Canadian gossip blogger Zack Taylor has more details from an employee of the laser tag place, which make the whole thing seem like a misunderstanding:

"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.

(Keep in mind that Taylor is known for his misinformation regarding matters of the Bieber. He falsely reported that Justin's mom was posing for playboy.)

Honestly, hitting a 12-year-old seems like something 16-year-old Justin Bieber would do. He has kind of a mean streak! Previously he hurled water balloons at police officers, and remember when he tweeted an enemy's phone number to millions of followers? Maybe this is part of a viral marketing plan to cement his new "hard" image as a streetwise rapper.
