No one puts Justin Bieber in a chokehold. Too bad that's exactly what went down Sunday night at Coachella.

According to TMZ, the Biebs had one hell of a time trying to get into a certain area at the music festival. He caused so much chaos, he was grabbed up by security...literally.

Justin was reportedly told he couldn't get into the artist area because it was at capacity. Bieber and his crew showed security they had the proper wristbands to gain entry. He even told them that there was no way he could stand in a big crowd because he'd get bombarded by fans. Security wasn't having it and told him to beat it.

Bieber apparently persisted and said he was personally invited by Drake and had been waiting all weekend to see him perform. Bieber didn't stand down and security went nuts.

Next, a Coachella staffer came up to Bieber and said she would escort him inside the area. She grabbed the Biebs by the arm and began walking him and his security team inside. That's when Coachella security came up from behind and put Bieber in a chokehold.

Of course, Justin's team reacted. They got into it with security and he was then ordered to leave the festival. Sources close to Bieber say he voluntarily left. Now he's considering taking legal action against the security guards.

While there's always two sides of every story, we kind of feel bad for the Biebs on this one. He really could've been hurt in that crowd.

What do you guys think about this situation? Are you on Justin's side this time or think he deserved to get the boot?
