Man Arrested After ‘Touching’ Justin Timberlake’s Face at Nevada Golf Course: Police

Justin Timberlake couldn't stop that feeling.

The Grammy-winning pop star got into an unexpected encounter when a man brushed his hand against Timberlake's face during a golfing tournament Saturday at Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The brief incident was caught on video first posted by TMZ.

After the man lightly touched the "Can't Stop the Feeling!" singer as he walked by, Timberlake snapped back, "Bro, why would you do that?"

Timberlake was then whisked away by security at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

Douglas County Undersheriff Paul Howell said the overexcited spectator — Keith Weglin, 29, of Sacramento, California — was arrested "after the 'touching' of Timberlake," according to The Associated Press.

Weglin, who was allegedly intoxicated, was being escorted out when he "became disorderly and argumentative," Howell said, which prompted his arrest.

He was booked in the Douglas County Jail for disorderly conduct and posted a $640 bail later that night, authorities said Tuesday.

Timberlake declined to press charges, but it will be up to the district attorney's office to decide whether it would file formal charges, Howell said.

Neither Timberlake's representatives nor Weglin immediately responded to requests for comment Tuesday. It was not immediately clear if Weglin had a lawyer.

Howell said later Tuesday that he considered it "a very minor event" but that he was issuing a news release "due to an undue amount of inquiries."
