Justin Bieber may be trying to clean up his act these days, but it seems the embattled singer is having some difficulty staying out of trouble.
The pop star attended the Coachella music festival over the weekend, and it initially looked as though he enjoyed an uneventful good time.
Bieber hung with Kendall Jenner throughout much of the festival; witnesses spotted him rocking out in the crowd, and everything appeared to be drama-free.
Moments ago, however, TMZ posted a crazy video of Bieber being put in a chokehold and forcibly removed from the performance area by security!
Insiders say the 21-year-old Bieber was attempting to get backstage during Drake's performance when he was stopped by the music festival's security.
An argument ensued as Bieber and his team demanded to be allowed into the artists' area; Justin insisted that he had been personally invited by Drake.
Strangely, a Coachella staffer was reportedly in the process of escorting Bieber backstage when security staff came up from behind and placed him in a chokehold.
After being subdued, Bieber left the performance area quietly and was then instructed to leave the festival grounds. He did so peacefully.
This latest dust-up involving the wannabe bad boy comes on the heels of news that a warrant was issued for Bieber's arrest in Argentina.
As for the Coachella situation, sources close to the singer say that he plans to take legal action against the security guards involved in the incident.
No reason was given by the festival for why Bieber needed to be put in such a hold ... perhaps they just felt he had it coming after the past few years:
