Hot on the heels of his DUI/resisting arrest-arrest, Justin Bieber is at it again. Looks like Scooter Braun and Usher‘s counseling skills are still needed, as Justin has now been charged with one count of assault for apparently hitting a limo driver repeatedly on the back of the head back in December. Don’t believe me? Ask the Toronto Police Service:
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:
He is scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Monday, March 10, 2014, 11 a.m., room 111.
That Justin Bieber – what a gentleman! His mother raised him so well… Oh wait – she didn’t. In any case, Justin returned to Canada yesterday just in time to turn himself into a Toronto police station yesterday night… after which he IMMEDIATELY MADE AN INSTAGRAM VIDEO telling fans to watch his new video, seemingly from still inside the station. Life’s a barrel of fucking laughs to this asshole.
Here’s what his lawyer told People:
“The Toronto Police Service requested that Justin Bieber appear in Toronto today to face an allegation of assault relating to an incident on December 29, 2013,” his lawyer said in a statement to PEOPLE. “We anticipate that this matter will be treated as a summary offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States.”
“Our position is that Mr. Bieber is innocent,” the statement continues. “As the matter is now before the court, it would be inappropriate to address the specifics of either the allegation or of our defense at this time.”
Earlier Wednesday, the Toronto police department wouldn’t confirm that the singer was on his way to the station. Constable Victor Kwong told PEOPLE, “I can only confirm that there was an investigation into the allegation of assault on a limo operator by one of his fares. I cannot confirm however that the Biebs is turning himself in.”
I really never knew it was possible to so ardently dislike a human being you’ve never met before Justin Bieber came along. This kid sends my blood pressure through the roof. Of course, he’ll get off with this just like he does with everything else, so no need to get our hopes up here. The world will just continue to let Justin Bieber terrorize it until he kills someone else or himself. Hurrah.
