The start to 2013 has been a rough one for Justin Bieber. Between pics of him smoking the ol' Mary Jane popping up online and his overly public split from Selena Gomez you'd think he'd want things to tone down. No such luck when you're one of the world's biggest superstars and keep creating news with your egregious behavior.
According to recently released reports the Biebs is now being investigated on assault charges.
Justin was in Ottawa, Canada in November when a female employee of the venue where he was performing filed a police report, claiming Bieber -- or someone who was Biebs adjacent -- assaulted her.
The woman told Canadian cops (aka Mounties) she was hit by something.
We now know what the something was .... a kid-safe projectile from a Nerf gun. Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Justin was Nerf fighting with his 3-year-old brother and 4-year-old sister and apparently one of the darts hit the woman.
We're told the woman pitched a fit and told Bieber's people she was a security guard for the venue and was royally pissed off. She filed a police report and the cops are actually taking it seriously -- they've already interviewed some people at the venue.
Perhaps Nerf darts are frozen in the The Great White North and therefore hurt more? Or perhaps a security guard is fishing for settlement money.
Here's to hoping someone making these outlandish claims and wasting police time gets no such money.
