Wait What?!? Justin Bieber To Be Charged With Criminal Assault [Update]
Justin Bieber has turned himself in to Toronto police for an expected assault charge.
Bieber arrived Wednesday evening at a police station to a crush of media and screaming fans.
A police official says the charge has to do with an alleged assault on a limo driver in December. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
Toronto police said in late December they were looking into allegations that a member of Bieber’s entourage assaulted a limo driver who was ferrying the Canadian pop star and several others. Police said at the time it was unclear whether Bieber was involved.
A spokesman for Bieber had no comment Wednesday.
Bieber emerged from a black SUV wearing a winter coat and a backwards ball cap.
Is the story that TMZ is apparently reporting in relation to a incident that happened back in December when Justin took a limo in Toronto.
As TMZ reports:
Justin Bieber will be charged with CRIMINAL ASSAULT for allegedly attacking a limousine driver … TMZ has learned.
Justin took a limo in Toronto in December and got into some sort of skirmish. At the time we were told a member of his entourage was being investigated for roughing up the driver.
But the investigation took a turn … We’re told Toronto cops wanted to talk to Justin but he didn’t come in for an interview and they got annoyed. Law enforcement sources say Justin is now in Toronto and in the next hour will go to the police station.
Sources say Justin will be booked for assault, given a citation and released on his own recognizance.
Our sources say 3 other witnesses were interviewed yesterday and at least some of their account incriminated Justin.
Story developing …
Hmmmm I don’t know guys. But we’ll keep you up dated as the story develops.
