Justin Bieber was involved in a fistfight on the street Wednesday night, and the incident was caught on video and posted by TMZ.com.
The video shows the pop star in a brief skirmish with a much bigger man. The incident reportedly took place outside Bieber’s hotel in downtown Cleveland just after 11 p.m.
Bieber “was face-to-face with the guy, who threw a light blow at Justin’s head. That’s when Justin uncorked a blow right to his face … and then it’s on!” TMZ reports. “Several people were standing nearby and tried to jump in, but the fight ends up spilling to the ground.”
The report cites witnesses saying Bieber, who was in Cleveland for game three of the NBA Finals, was being hounded by people requesting photos, something that has angered him in the past.
“Overall … we’d say Justin held his own, though he ended up on the bottom of the pile,” TMZ notes.
