Justin Bieber

Investigated for Assault ...

With a Nerf Gun!

EXCLUSIVE

0125_justin_bieber_nerf_fight_Article_getty_tmzJustin Bieber is being investigated on serious gun control charges -- Nerf gun control!

Here's the story. Justin was in Ottawa, Canada in November when a female employee of the venue where he was performing filed a police report, claiming Bieber -- or someone who was Biebs adjacent -- assaulted her.

The woman told Canadian cops she was hit by something.

We now know what the something was ... a kid-safe projectile from a Nerf gun. Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Justin was Nerf fighting with his 3-year-old brother and 4-year-old sister and apparently one of the darts hit the woman.

We're told the woman pitched a fit and told Bieber's people she was a security guard for the venue and was royally pissed off. She filed a police report and the cops are actually taking it seriously -- they've already interviewed some people at the venue.

Getting hit by a Nerf projectile is definitely annoying, but criminal? Be serious, eh!

First of all, that woman is just looking for a pay day.
Second, as a Canadian, and a citizen of Ottawa, where the venue (ScotiaBank Place) is, I know for a fact that the Ottawa Police would respond to that call. In Ottawa, the RCMP would ONLY respond to calls on Federal Government property, anything else would be the responsibility of the civic police force (Ottawa Police).

The RCMP do not police Ontario and Quebec (they only deal with federal crimes there) so, if this took place in Ottawa, Ontario ~ the police dealing with this alleged complaint (if it's true) would be Ottawa City Police. Do your homework guys!

I am sad I can not use the words I have for t his woman - but it probably wouldn't be published. The nerf ball, gun and all related things should be placed where the sun doesn't make an appearance with her. She is a good example as to why a lot of men just are content with being gay.

Who wrote this article? "Canadian cops (aka Mounties)" . Every province in Canada has it's own police force. In Ontario it's the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police force. "Be Serious, Mounties" we are very proud of our "Mounties" ! Just because a compaint is being investigated doesn't mean charges would be laid! How Stupid!!

Why is Austin trying to be so gangster? Smoking pot, cheating on Selena, trying to a G?!?! I think his moronic PR team, loser dad, and desire to be Chris Brown or Usher is ruining this boy as he so desperately is trying to transition into manhood. He needs to be true to himself and his public persona. He is not hard or gangster and needs to put down the pipe and groupie foreplay.

Just a little FYI not all Canadian Police are Mountee's .. for example Otawa is in Ontario and each Region has its own Policing unit. Mountees are RCMP. OPP is highway.. Educate yourselves please.

FYI The report would NOT have been filed with the RCMP or "Mounties" but with the plain old Ottawa Police Service. Using the Mounties for this would be like using the CIA for it....The RCMP is our National police service.

This kid has a malicious streak, courts or outright instigates attacks on non-celebrities, and one day this is going to backfire big time. One person already is dead, but that was a pap and apparently the public doesn't think paps are human.
