The unending debate over gun control has spread even to Justin Bieber. It seems that the young heartthrob is being investigated for an assault incident that occurred back in November 2012. Of course, the possible assault happened with a Nerf gun.

Bieber's potential problems began when the singer was in Ottawa, Canada for a performance. Apparently, Justin and two of his younger siblings were having a pre-show Nerf war. One of the darts hit a female employee of the concert venue, and she did not appreciate the blow.

Whether the woman was hurt, insulted or just looking for a little bit of fame-adjacency, she went to the police and filed charges for assault. The charges do not say whether Justin himself or someone with him fired the offending Nerf dart.

While it's easy to shrug this off as a joke, the police have actually questioned people at the concert venue with regard to the incident.

There is no word yet as to whether assault with a non-deadly Nerf gun charges are coming.

TMZ.com first reported the case.
