Man files complaint saying Justin Bieber assaulted him after Cavaliers game

A Las Vegas man who says Justin Bieber assaulted him after Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland has filed a police report about the fracas.

A Las Vegas man who says Justin Bieber assaulted him after Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland has filed a police report over the alleged incident.

In a complaint filed Tuesday with Cleveland police and obtained by The Associated Press, Rodney Cannon, 34, claims Bieber took Cannon's sunglasses inside a hotel after the Cavaliers' win June 8. Cannon claims that Bieber and possibly a bodyguard punched him, and that he wrestled Bieber to the ground to restrain him, the report said.

Bieber was at the game that night supporting the home team by wearing an "All In" T-shirt, but the fan base didn't quite feel the same love.

Bieber was booed relentlessly when he was shown on the jumbotron.


Those boos turned to fists after the game as TMZ Sports obtained footage purportedly of Bieber getting involved in the alleged fight with Cannon. 


A Cleveland police spokesman confirmed to the AP the allegation is under investigation.
