(User Submitted) – Justin Bieber: baby heartthrob, singer, emerging rapper ... tween assaulter? The Bieb is accused of injuring a 12-year-old boy during a game of laser tag, of all things. According to police, Bieber, 16, and his two bodyguards were kicked out of a laser tag center in Vancouver Friday, but they gave no details of the alleged altercation. A staff member tells 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," the source continued, adding that Bieber hung around after the game to explain the incident, but the injured boy's parents called police anyway.
