A man was arrested Saturday (July 23) after slapping Justin Timberlake at a celebrity golf tournament in Nevada.
The incident occurred as Justin was walking through a crowd of people after playing in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. The man can be seen reaching out and slapping the star on the side of the face, who was not at all injured and refused to press charges.
“Bro, why would you do that?” Justin questions after the man touches him. JT’s handlers push the singer along before the situation could get out of hand.
According to TMZ, the man was apparently an overzealous fan who just wanted to “touch” JT, who finished 21st in the tournament. The man was arrested after security attempted to escort him from the premises and he refused to leave. The man appeared to be intoxicated and was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Justin, however, kept it moving after the incident. He was spotted doing the “Carlton Dance” with The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s Alfonso Ribeiro and NBA superstar guard, Steph Curry. JT and Ribeiro also did Curry’s trademark pregame Jones BBQ and Foot Massage dance.
The singer recently had a big hit with “Can’t Stop the Feeling.” He also came under fire for his tone deaf remarks to a fan who accused him of cultural appropriation following Jesse Williams’ fiery speech at the 2016 BET Awards. JT later apologized.
