Justin Timberlake Gets Slapped by Stranger at Celebrity Golf Tournament
As Justin Timberlake was walking through a crowd at the 27th American Century Championship, he got slapped on the side of his face by a stranger. But the "Can't Stop the Feeling" singer didn't let the incident stop him from enjoying the celebrity golf tournament with his fellow stars.
The incident happened on Saturday at Lake Tahoe. In a video obtained by TMZ, Timberlake and his entourage can be seen walking in the middle of a group of spectators. As they make their way through, the entertainer gets slapped by a male individual from behind.
Timberlake then stops to look at man and briefly confront him.
"Bro, why would you do that?" he asked the spectator.
The second part of the clip then shows members of the tournament's security staff talking with the individual. According to them, the man was intoxicated and claimed that he only wanted to touch the *NSYNC member.
After asking him to leave the premises, the man became belligerent. This prompted the security staff to call police officers who then arrested the man due to his disorderly conduct.
The slapping was only viewed as a minor incident and according to reports, Timberlake will not press charges against the man.
Despite the unexpected event, Timberlake still continued to play golf with his celebrity buddies. Some of the stars who attended the event included comedian Ray Romano, gold medalist alpine ski racer Bode Miller, retired NBA superstar Charles Barkley and unanimous MVP Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, according to E! Online.
The Warriors point guard even posted a photo of him with Timberlake celebrating at the tournament.
