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!

This is beyond sad. Why does he make news when there is no news?

He might as well set up an account for those that come down with the Sue bug and try make money off him for the most ridicules things. If this person gets away with this stupid claim than EVERYONE who has been shot with a nerf gun can go on the Sue bandwagon as well. For crying out loud get a life. The people who do this look more stupid than him. It's sad and pathetic.

Saddest thing is that JB is one of their own - a Canadian! I hope this woman is shunned by her peers.

Don't be so stupid, TMZ. They don't know whether it was a nerf ball. That's why it's called an "investigation". Just becuase the accused says it was a nerf ball, doesn't mean it was. Bieber should be taking that kind of play to the backyard or a park, not to a public venue.

To be fair, Nerf does have the Extreme series and they are hard tipped. Not worth filing a report but I've had a few that my 9yo shot leave a small welt in the right spots.

In Canada this is really quite serious, Nerfs guns are the deadliest kinds of gun we can get up here. Even to buy matches you have to be 18.

She's supposed to be a "Security Guard" and can't handle a piece of flying nerf foam hitting her? Quit your job you scamming bozo!
