The Word: Justin Bieber reportedly under investigation for assault

Justin Bieber reportedly had his body guards "handle" a situation outside a nightclub.
Justin Bieber reportedly had his body guards “handle” a situation outside a club.

The good news is, Justin Bieber didn’t assault anyone. The bad news is, he may have asked his bodyguards to do it for him.

Police are now investigating an altercation outside a Southampton club between Bieber’s crew and a man named Wayne Rennalls. According to the New York Post, it all began with an H&M bow tie: Rennalls gave the tie to a waitress, then attempted to follow her into the VIP area to get it back. There he ran into Bieber and his entourage, who “got in his face,” a source said.

You’ll be relieved to know that Rennalls got his bow tie back. Unfortunately, one thing he couldn’t get back was Bieber’s favor. The fight allegedly flared up again later in the parking lot, where the two men first traded insults before things got physical. “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 and wanted to throw hands. His people surrounded Wayne, who was getting punched from all angles,” the source said.

Sounds like a fair fight to me. Rennalls should have just gotten his bodyguards to join in on his side. What’s that? Normal people don’t have bodyguards to do their fighting for them? Rennalls should have thought of that before he pissed off Justin Bieber.
