Justin Bieber is being investigated for allegedly punching a man three times at a hotel. Rodney Cannon, 34, from Las Vegas, claims he was attacked by the Baby singer and his bodyguards after a basketball game in Cleveland, Ohio, last June. In a report filed with Cleveland Police on Wednesday, Mr Cannon says the fight broke out when Bieber took his sunglasses and became angry after Mr Cannon started taking pictures of him. Bieber had previously warned fans he would no longer take pictures with them because they make him “feel like a caged animal”.
The victim stated he believed he was punched three times during the whole incident by Justin Bieber.
TMZ published a video appearing to show Bieber and Cannon fighting at the hotel lobby. The report says Mr Cannon was taken to Spring Valley Hospital in Nevada with an “acute head injury and a possible concussion”. A Cleveland Police spokesman said no one had been charged. According to TMZ, Mr Cannon waited eight months to file the report in the hope he would settle the dispute with Bieber.
