Justin Timberlake may have cried himself a river after he got slapped at a golf tournament this weekend.

The “Can’t Stop the Feeling” singer, 35, was greeting attendees at the American Century Celebrity Pro-Am in Lake Tahoe, Nev., on Saturday when a spectator got a little too hands-on with him.

In a video of the incident, Timberlake made his way through the crowd when one spectator slaps him in the back of the neck. An indignant Timberlake snapped, “Bro, why would you do that?”

TMZ reports the tournament officials “saw it as a minor incident,” but that it escalated when sheriff’s deputies attempted to escort the aggressor, who was allegedly intoxicated, off the premises at which point he allegedly refused to leave and grew aggressive. He was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Timberlake declined to press charges.
