TORONTO — An Ohio man who claims Justin Bieber spit in his face said Thursday he has filed a police report.

Addison Ulhaq, also known as DJ Addison, alleged Bieber insulted him and spit in his face inside The Social Room nightclub in the early morning hours of July 13.

“Regardless of how famous a person is, the law treats all people the same,” Ulhaq’s lawyer Collin Wise said in a press release. “Mr. Bieber may believe that having bodyguards allows him to abuse another person, but the law of Ohio does not carve out special treatment for celebrities.”

Ulhaq, a neuroscience major at Ohio State University, alleges he was confronted by two of Bieber’s bodyguards who accused him of snapping photos of the star. He claims they grabbed and searched his phone but found no pictures.

Bieber then allegedly approached Ulhaq and said: “Your mother’s a [expletive]; your father is a [expletive]; and you are a [expletive].” Ulhaq claimed Bieber then spit on his face, leaving saliva and mucus in his eye, nose and mouth.

“Mr. Bieber thinks that he is better than other people,” said lawyer Megan Frantz Oldham, who is also representing Ulhaq, “and that he is above the law.”

A rep for Bieber could not be reached.
