Report: Justin Bieber involved in laser tag scuffle?
Justin Bieber reportedly got booted from a laser tag facility Friday night, CBC News says, after a 12-year-old boy complained the 16-year-old pop star hit him while playing the game.
Canadian celeb website Zack Taylor has details, allegedly from an anonymous staffer at the venue in Richmond, British Columbia: "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 kid's sister said he started crying because he was hit hard, but when we saw the boy there was no marks or anything."
Canadian police confirmed an investigation of an assault on a boy, reported by the boy's father, but didn't name Bieber.
A Bieber rep told TMZ on Saturday that the allegations are untrue.
