Everything wasn’t all sunshine and music at Coachella.

According to reports, Justin Bieber had a nasty run in with security at the festival, which resulted in the 21 year old being placed in a choke hold.

During Drake’s set, Bieber and his crew attempted to go backstage. As they made their way, they were stopped by security and told backstage was at capacity. Bieber reportedly showed proper credentials and explained staying among fans would cause chaos. Unfortunately, Coachella security wasn’t buying it.

TMZ reports an argument ensued when Bieber refused to leave. A Coachella staffer grabbed Bieber by the hand to escort him to an artist area and then a security guard came up behind the entertainer and placed him a choke hold, which caused a fight between Bieber’s team and Coachella security.
