Justin Bieber: Police Reveal Why He Was Charged With Assaulting Driver

Wed, January 29, 2014 10:54pm EDT by 21 Comments

Toronto police have released a report outlining the shocking assault charge made against Justin Bieber. Officials believe the troubled young pop star hit his limo driver on the head several times during a Dec. 30 altercation in Toronto.

After Justin Bieber, 19, was formally charged with assaulting a limo driver on Dec. 30, 2013, police released a detailed report describing the alleged events of that night. Justin’s attorney has already spoken out and proclaimed his innocence, but it seems like the police case against Justin is pretty strong.

Justin Bieber Assault – Police Reveal Why He Was Charged With Assaulting Driver

Justin was charged after he turned himself into Toronto police on Jan. 29, and they quickly followed up with an official statement. Here’s what they had to say:

It is alleged that:

- on Monday, December 30, 2013 at approximately 2:50 a.m., a limousine picked up a group of six people outside a nightclub in the Peter Street and Adelaide Street West area.
- while driving the group to a hotel, an altercation occurred between one of the passengers and the driver of the limousine
- in the course of the altercation, a man struck the limousine driver on the back of the head several times
- the driver stopped the limousine, exited the vehicle and called police
- the man who struck him left the scene before police arrived

On Wednesday, January 29, 2014, Justin Bieber, 19, of Calabasas, California, surrendered to police at 52 Division. He is facing the following charge:
1. Assault
He is scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Monday, March 10, 2014, 11 a.m., room 111.

It seems like Justin is really in over his head this time. But his lawyer, Howard Weitzman, said he’s confident Justin’s case will be treated a summary offense, which is the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States.

Justin’s attorney declared the singer’s innocence in a statement released after the Biebs met with police. Howard declined to comment further, saying that it was “now a matter for the court to handle.”

Justin Bieber Pleads Not Guilty To DUI Charge

Meanwhile, at the same time on Jan. 29, the news went public that Justin had pleaded not guilty to his Miami Beach charges of resisting arrest, driving under the influence, and driving with an expired license, TMZ reports.

Justin’s arraignment has been set for Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, but his lawyer, Mark Shapiro, has entered a written not guilty plea. Justin will still be arraigned on the charges, but he will not have to show up to court.

It’s been his own choice. If he’s sentenced, I say it’s normal justice. Just because he’s a star doesn’t mean he’s above the law.

@Sarah, maybe this will stop him in his tracks and then he’ll finally realize that he better shape up or he’ll be shipping out.

It’s like he thinks he is so rich that there are no consequences to his actions and he can literally do and hurt whoever he wants. Mind you if it was just him along without the bodyguards, I really really doubt he would have acted so tough. He’s a grown man now that thinks he’s tough because of his bodyguards
