The 22 year old pop star Justin Bieber is being investigated for allegedly assaulting a man in Cleveland after the NBA Finals last year. If the accusations are proven to be true by the justice system, then last summer's viral footage of the fight doesn't tell the full story.
You may remember the viral footage of Bieber exchanging shoves and jabs with a man, before he gets plowed into a door and then taken down. It could've been much worse for the Canadian superstar, as the man — who looks to twice his size — was restrained by a group of bystanders shortly after Bieber hit the ground.
Though Bieber looks to have narrowly avoided a severe beating, his opponent is the one who's claiming to be the victim in the violent encounter. He has filed a police report in which he says he was assaulted by Justin.
He alleges that Bieber instigated the altercation by grabbing his sunglasses. The accuser says that Bieber got violent when he tried to take a picture of him wearing the stolen shades, however, the previously leaked footage doesn't seem to show Bieber's opponent sustaining any injuries.
The victim claims that he went to the hospital that night and even sustained a concussion. One would think that if he did get injured, then perhaps he's suggesting that Bieber ordered his men to give him a beating.
For now, there is no evidence other than last summer's video. The man took so long to file charges because he has allegedly been trying to strike a settlement deal with Justin. Police report that no charges have yet been filed and that the investigation is ongoing.
