Justin Bieber was officially charged in connection with an alleged assault on a Toronto limousine driver last year. The singer is due to appear in court on March 10 to face those charges.
Detectives were investigating allegations that someone in his crew assaulted the driver as he transported Bieber and pals from an ice hockey game. It was unclear if The Biebs was directly involved or got physical with the driver.
Of course Bieber maintains his innocence. The teen's attorney stated: "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. 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."
He is due in court in Miami on Valentine's Day to deal with last week's arrest for alleged DUI and drag racing.
Also, his deportation petition, which accuses him of being a bad influence on the youth and a danger to American citizens, continues to rake in signatures, meaning it may need to be addressed by the government.
Do you think JB should be deported?
