A man has alleged that Canadian singer, Justin Bieber, assaulted him outside a hotel in Cleveland after the NBA Finals back in June 2016, prompting police to commence investigation into him.
Bieber, 22, has a history with getting in trouble with the law. He has ones again gotten drawn into a fresh one as he has been named as the perpetrator of an assault on a man after an NBA Finals basketball game in Cleveland in June 2016.
Video footage had surfaced at the time of the incident outside Bieber’s hotel in downtown Cleveland on June 8th, with the Canadian star apparently seen getting involved in a brawl and shoving a man who was rather larger in physical stature than him.
Eight months later, police sources from Cleveland told TMZ that he is now the chief suspect in the incident.
The alleged victim, 34 year old Rodney Cannon from Las Vegas, told police that Bieber had grabbed his sunglasses. When he took a picture of the singer wearing the glasses, it apparently set Bieber into “attack mode”, with several of the star’s crew getting involved in the brawl, with the victim sustaining several injuries including concussion.
Sources told the gossip site that the allegations are only surfacing now because Cannon had been “trying to settle up with Justin but he just wouldn’t play ball.”
