Justin Bieber's entourage is being investigated after the entertainer's brief visit to a Hamptons nightclub early Sunday concluded with a brawl after someone reportedly threw a rock at the singer's car.

Justin Bieber’s security team and some club attendees reportedly fought as the singer was leaving the trendy South Pointe Night Club in Southampton, The New York Post reported. An unidentified club spokesman said that Bieber, 19, was swarmed by fans trying to take his photo as he and friends were getting in his car.

"Security was pushing people away and that’s when the altercation happened," the South Pointe representative said.

Multiple sources say the alleged altercation began when someone threw a rock at Bieber's vehicle.

"Someone threw a rock at the car, Justin’s security stopped the car and beat him up. Justin stayed in the car and wasn’t involved," one source said.

While sources said the reported fight altercation occurred in the nightclub’s parking lot, security tapes show the incident happened away from the venue, on the street.

Southampton Police told The Post that one victim was transported to Peconic Bay Medical Center for minor injuries. The victim later filed an assault claim against Bieber's security team, not the singer.

"Upon his release from Peconic Bay Medical Center, the subject responded to Southampton Town Police Department and provided a statement to detectives that earlier this date, at about 3:45 a.m.," a police statement read. "He was involved in an altercation and physically assaulted by subjects unknown to him but he believes them to be members of singer Justin Bieber’s security staff who he stated were also at the night club."

The South Pointe Night Club rep said the victim is also pressing charges.

“An investigation is still pending, and we’re cooperating with that, but South Pointe is not involved in all with the incident because it happened off premise," the rep told The Post.

Before the confrontation, clubgoers said that Bieber stayed in a VIP area of the club while his security team "intimidated" photo-taking fans.

"They were heavy-handed in their protection of him," one South Pointe attendee told the New York Daily News.

This is not the first time Bieber has been implicated in questionable acts. TMZ published damning photos appearing to show Bieber and a friend lighting up joints in a California hotel room in December of 2012.
