Justin Timberlake

An overzealous fan has been arrested after he slapped Justin Timberlake during the American Century Celebrity Pro-Am golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.

According to TMZ, the ‘Cry Me a River’ singer was walking into the facility when a hand smacked him right on the face. The singer quickly turned and yelled, “Why would you do that?”

Later, the man was accosted by the tournament reps who saw the incident.

Justin Timberlake didn’t want to press charges and this was because the fan claimed he only wanted to ‘touch’ him but got ‘overzealous’, resulting in the accidental slap. However, the police tried to escort the man from the facility but he resisted. He was forcefully arrested for disorderly misconduct, and the police later added that he was intoxicated.
