Justin Bieber charged with assault:
It’s never good news when it comes to Justin Beiber and this time things are getting pretty serious for the teenage singer.
Justin Bieber has reportedly been charged with assault.
The 19-year-old singer called into the 52 Division police station in Toronto today (30.01.14) to be formally charged with allegedly attacking a limousine driver last month.
According to TMZ.com, Justin and his entourage were allegedly involved in an altercation while leaving a Toronto Maple Leafs game on December 29, 2013, at the Air Canada Centre and police were forced to intervene.
This is the latest in a string of legal issues the ‘Beauty and A Beat’ hitmaker faces after he was arrested last week in Miami for driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an expired license and resisting arrest.
The hunky star reportedly pleaded not guilty to the charges yesterday (29.01.14).
An arraignment date has been set for Valentine’s Day (14.01.14), but Justin is not required to attend.
However, the troubled star could also potentially face felony charges after an incident earlier this month where one of his neighbours’ homes was egged, causing $20,000 of damage.
Officers for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department said they will soon be submitting evidence to the District Attorney, who will then decide whether to press charges.
Meanwhile, Justin – who is from Ontario – could be deported back to Canada after over 100,000 signed a petition to have him removed from the US.
