Justin Timberlake slapped in face at golf tournament

LAKE TAHOE, Nev., July 26 (UPI) — Justin Timberlake got a surprise slap to the face at a golf tournament over the weekend.

An overzealous fan smacked the 35-year-old singer on the cheek as Timberlake competed in the American Century Pro-Am golf tournament Saturday in Lake Tahoe, Nev.

TMZ reported Timberlake didn’t want to press charges, but said the spectator was arrested for disorderly conduct after he became belligerent when confronted by cops. The website released footage of the incident Monday.

“Why would you do that?” an angry Timberlake can be heard asking in the video.

The “Suit Tie” singer competed against such stars as Mark Mulder, who won the tournament, Stephen Curry, Aaron Rodgers and Ray Romano. Timberlake came in 21st place, but impressed fans with his birdie on the 17th hole.

“Golf is me and buddies out having a good time, but most of all, golf is about me and my dad,” the star previously told Gold Digest. “Anytime I think of golf, I think about my dad. he taught me how to hit a golf ball, and he got me playing.”

Timberlake made headlines in February for dancing The Carlton with Alfonso Ribeiro at the ATT Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament. The singer last released The 20/20 Experience – Part 2 in 2013.
