Canada's CBC News reported late Saturday that the heartthrob, 16, was kicked out of a laser tag center in Richmond, British Columbia after punching a 12-year-old boy.

According to the report, the "Somebody to Love" singer, who has a Vancouver show on Tuesday, arrived with an entourage of 14 at the facility.   Staff members told CBC that the star was followed around and targeted during the game.

TMZ claims that Bieber (who was photographed at the center Friday) was bullied and taunted with homophobic slurs.

A member of Royal Canadian Mounted Police tells UsMagazine.com: "On Friday around 5:30 p.m. we got a report that a 12-year-old boy was allegedly assaulted at an entertainment facility in Richmond. The boy sustained minimal injuries and did not require medical attention. We are continuing our investigation." No other info will be released at this time, the spokesperson added.

Due to the fact that both parties involved in the alleged fight are under the age of 18, their identities will not be publicly disclosed, according to Canadian law.

Of reports that the older child in the incident was called a "f***ot," Corporal Annie Linteau tells Us, "Until we conduct our investigation, I can't comment on that."

Bieber's rep told TMZ Friday that the assault report was "absolutely untrue."
