Fan Arrested After Slapping Justin Timberlake at a Golf Tournament
Published Jul 26, 2016Golf isn't typically a contact sport, but one spectator has landed himself under arrest for after showing a little too much affection for Justin Timberlake during a game over the weekend.
Timberlake was playing in the American Century Celebrity Pro-Am in Lake Tahoe, and as he moved through a throng of supporters, one man reached out with his hand and exerted a little more force than expected.
The "Can't Stop the Feeling" singer apparently couldn't stop feeling the hand-to-face contact, stopping and turning around to ask the fan, "Why would you do that?"
According to TMZ, the tournament representatives viewed the incident as "minor" after determining that Timberlake was left unscathed from the contact. But when security attempted to remove the over-eager fan from the premises, it became clear that he was intoxicated and growing increasingly belligerent. Ultimately, he was arrested for disorderly conduct.
