Authorities in New York have confirmed that they are investigating teen singer Justin Bieber over allegations that he instigated a fight outside of a nightclub in the Hamptons.
Reportedly, Bieber got involved in a verbal tiff with another clubgoer. He was taken back to a waiting car by his security guards before the brawl spilled out into the parking lot, and clubber Wayne Rennalls, 22, was later hospitalized and filed a report with police.
Reports suggest Bieber was not involved in the alleged violence, but he was pictured climbing out of his car’s sunroof and standing on the hood of the vehicle as the brawl flared up.
An eyewitness said, “It escalated outside when we heard Bieber yelling and talking s**t… He was screaming in Wayne’s direction, ‘Punk b**ch!’ Wayne thought somebody threw something at him. Wayne picked up a small rock and threw it back towards Justin. That’s when Wayne heard someone yell, ‘You done f**ked up now.’ Justin jumped out the sunroof of his car and slid down the car like he was in Die Hard… He dropped his shirt and threw his hat … His people surrounded Wayne.”
Sergeant Todd Spencer said of the incident, “That would be part of the investigation, whether Bieber directed them or not.”
