Watch as fan gets arrested for ‘touching’ Justin Timberlake’s face at golf tournament

Man was arrested for disorderly conduct

A fan was arrested at the weekend for appearing to slap Justin Timberlake‘s face during a celebrity golf tournament.

The singer was taking part in the American Century Celebrity Pro-Am at Lake Tahoe in Nevada on Saturday (July 23) when a fan’s hand made contact with the star’s face as he walked through the crowd.

Video footage posted by TMZ shows Timberlake shouting back at the fan following the incident: “Bro, why would you do that?”


Reports say that the fan was escorted from the event and arrested for disorderly conduct after appearing “intoxicated” and becoming “belligerent”.

Law enforcement sources state that the man claimed he wanted to “touch” Timberlake and got “overzealous”.

Meanwhile, Timberlake and NBA player Steph Curry performed an impromptu version of “The Carlton” dance with The Fresh Prince of Bel Air star Alfonso Ribeiro at the same event.
