A little slap couldn't stop Justin Timberlake's golf game.

The "Can't Stop the Feeling" singer was smacked on the face by an overzealous golf spectator during the American Celebrity Pro-Am in Lake Tahoe over the weekend, and he did not look pleased about the contact. In a video obtained by TMZ, Timberlake can be seen on the receiving end of a mild slap while making his way through a crowd. The 35-year-old immediately turned around to see the offender for himself, yelling out: "Why would you do that?"

According to TMZ, Timberlake did not want to press charges. But when sheriff's deputies attempted to escort the man off the premises, he allegedly "became belligerent" and was reportedly arrested for disorderly conduct. The report states that the man claimed he only wanted to "touch" Timberlake, but took it too far. 

It wasn't all bad news for Timberlake on the course. His hilarious antics with Stephen Curry and Alfonso Ribeiro, dancing "The Carlton" together before teeing off, quickly went viral. Ultimately, Timberlake placed 21st in the competition.
