Scoop: Man arrested, released after Justin Timberlake encounter

Even though Justin Timberlake didn’t want to press charges against a California man who apparently got too physical with him over the weekend at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, the guy nonetheless was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Keith Weglin, 29, of Sacramento, was booked into the county jail for the misdemeanor, posted $640 bail and released, Douglas County Undersheriff Paul Howell told the Associated Press on Tuesday.

TMZ posted a video showing a hand slapping or touching Timberlake on the back of his neck as he walked through the gallery between holes during second-round play in American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

Timberlake could be heard saying, “Bro, why would you do that?”

Howell called it “a very minor event” but said he was issuing a news release “due to an undue amount of inquiries” and added that the district attorney’s office will decide whether to file formal charges.

Speaking of Justins, here’s a creepy item about Justin Bieber: An autopsy report reveals that a man who claimed to have spent more than $100,000 on plastic surgeries in an effort to look like the pop star died of an accidental drug overdose.

Tobias Strebel, 35, was found dead in a Los Angeles motel last August. A toxicology report released by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office shows Strebel had Valium, Xanax, alcohol and various opiates in his system when he died, the AP reported Tuesday.
