Canadian police are investigating Justin Bieber on assault charges. The weapon? A nerf gun.

In November, Bieber was performing in Ottawa, Canada when a woman working at the venue claimed that he, uh, assaulted her with a mystery object, according to TMZ. The culprit turned out to be a dart from a nerf gun that Bieber was using against his 3-year-old brother and 4-year-old sister.

But the woman was taking the "shots" fired at her very seriously. She filed a police report, and cops are following through on the investigation. They've interviewed people at the venue to get to the bottom of the "attack."
