TORONTO - Canadian police charged Justin Bieber on Wednesday with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto last month, the latest in a string legal troubles for the young pop star.
Toronto police said in a statement Bieber allegedly struck the limousine driver on the back of the head several times during an altercation. The charges have not been proven in court and representatives for Bieber, 19, could not immediately be reached for comment.
The 19-year-old is scheduled to appear in court on March 10. The police statement came out just over two hours after he had handed himself in, amid chaotic scenes.
The charges are the latest run-in with the law for the teen star after his Los Angeles home was searched because he allegedly hurled eggs at a neighbour's house, and his arrest in Miami Beach on Jan 23 for drag racing and impaired driving.
