One fan couldn’t seem to control his excitement when he saw Justin Timberlake in the flesh at the weekend and slapped him in the face.

The Can’t Stop The Feeling Singer was attending the American Century Pro-Am in Lake Tahoe on Saturday when a hand reached out from the crowd and slapped him in the face.

TMZ obtained the footage of the incident and reports that Justin didn’t want to press charges, before things went downhill.

“Bro, why would you do that?” asked Justin as he slowed down.

Security then approached the suspect, with law enforcement sources telling TMZ he just wanted to “touch” Justin but got a bit carried away.

He was asked to leave the premises but refused, appearing drunk and reportedly becoming belligerent. He was then arrested for disorderly conduct.

The Grammy winner didn’t seem to mind too much, however, posting photos from his golfing weekend to Instagram.
