Justin Bieber investigated by New York police over Hamptons club brawl
New York police is investigating Justin Bieber and his entourage following a club brawl in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Justin Bieber’s night out at the South Pointe venue in The Hamptons ended in a fight, which led to the hospitalization of a man.
The altercation is said to have started in the roped-off VIP area – where Justin Bieber, 19, was seated with his entourage – but ended up in a bloody brawl in the club’s car park.
Footage of the incident shows Justin Bieber leaping out of a SUV’s sunroof as other men appear to be engaging in a physical confrontation.
Although Justin Bieber is never seen making any physical contact with any other clubgoer but he does appear very agitated.
Southampton Police sergeant Todd Spencer confirmed police were trying to determine whether or not Justin Bieber coaxed his bodyguards into an alleged attack on clubber Wayne Rennalls, 22.
Sgt. Todd Spencer told the New York Post newspaper: “That would be part of the investigation, whether Bieber directed them or not.”
The argument was said to have started after Wayne Rennalls clashed with Justin Bieber’s entourage over a bow tie.
Wayne Rennallls was said to have given his white H&M accessory to a waitress at the club after she complimented it.
However, when she visited Justin the VIP area to provide him with service, Wayne Rennalls attempted to follow her to get his tie back.
A source told The Post: “Justin was flashing all these girls with his flashlight. The girl with the bow tie went over to Justin and Wayne followed because he wanted his tie back. Then Bieber’s people got in his face . . . he eventually got the tie back.
“We thought it was all over, but it escalated outside when we heard Bieber yelling and talking s**t. He was screaming in Wayne’s direction, <<Punk b**ch!>> Wayne thought somebody threw something at him. Wayne picked up a small rock and threw it back towards Justin.
“Justin jumped out the sunroof of his car and slid down the car like he was in Die Hard… He dropped his shirt and threw his hat and wanted to throw hands. His people surrounded Wayne, who was getting punched from all angles.”
Wayne Rennalls ended up in hospital with a black eye, a busted lip and bruised ribs, while another clubber was also knocked unconscious during the incident.
Justin Bieber took to Twitter on Monday seemingly to dismiss the incident as a rumor.
The star tweeted: “The most recent rumors might be the funniest of all. Where do u get this stuff??? #focusedonreality.”
“Off to do what I love. Perform and see my fans. Focused on the positive and what is real. South Carolina see u soon.”
Justin Bieber had spent his day sunning himself and positing shirtless pictures on Instagram.
