  • Justin Bieber punched a man in the face who had grabbed a woman by the throat
  • The 24-year-old pop star sprung into action as the unidentified man would not release his grip on a woman

Pop singer Justin Bieber allegedly punched a man in the face after he saw him grab a woman by the throat.

According to a TMZ story, the 24-year-old singer was attending a Coachella bash –  a California music festival – with friend Patrick Schwarzenegger when he noticed a guy walk into the party and proceed to go “ballistic” on a woman.

When Bieber began “screaming” at the attacker to get him to stop, the man reportedly told him, “Go f— yourself.”

The man “would not release his grip on her,” and Bieber intervened by punching the man and pushing him against the wall; hence, the woman was able to leave immediately.

The La Quinta Police Department confirmed the incident to Billboard on Monday morning; reporting that officers responded to a call at 6:40 p.m. on Saturday (Apr. 14) and met with residential security over a report of a battery at a residence in La Quinta, California, located in the Coachella Valley.
