In a video taken at the American Century Celebrity Pro-Am golf competition in Lake Tahoe, a fan is clearly spotted smacking poor Justin Timberlake in the face.
Justin didn’t really take it in stride, nor should he. “Why would you do that?” he yelled at the slapper before stalking away.
Security approached the perpetrator and attempted to escort him away from the event, but he refused to leave. Police stated that he claimed he just wanted to touch Timberlake and got a little too excited. They also stated that he appeared to have been drinking.
The slapper ended up not cooperating with the police, so he was arrested for disorderly conduct. However, Timberlake himself isn’t pressing charges. Tournament representatives stated that the incident was nothing serious.
Watching the video, it looks like Timberlake’s face will be just fine. In fact, the slap looks more like a pat on the cheek. Still, unwanted touching is unwanted touching.
