Justin Bieber Outsized in Fight and Takedown in Front of Westin Hotel in Cleveland

Justin Bieber got into an all out street brawl with a guy much bigger than him Wednesday night in Cleveland.

Pop singer Justin Bieber was taken down by a much larger man, who had asked for a fan picture, outside a Cleveland hotel. A grumpy Bieber, age 22, warned fans last month that he would not pose for pictures in public anymore.

According to witness reports, a group of fans wanted pictures with the Bieber, but he refused and exchanged words with them — calling one large man a “motherf*****” before the very brief fight began.

Bieber then shoved the burly man, who pushed him back. Then Bieber threw a punch and was taken down by the large man.

The large man, Lamont Richmond, told the The Sun (UK) that he was walking with his girlfriend before the fight and only wanted an autograph.

“They asked the little guy, can they take a picture with him he said ‘hell no get out his face’ so I said ‘what the hell wrong with you.’ Then he threw a punch and you see from the video what I had to do,” he said.

Police were not called to the scene. Bieber was in Cleveland Wednesday night to watch Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
