TORONTO: Justin Bieber surrendered to Toronto police on an assault charge Wednesday, the second arrest in a week for the baby-faced 19-year-old pop star.
Bieber arrived in the evening at a police station to a crush of media and screaming fans. A police official said the charge has to do with an alleged assault on a limo driver in December.
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.
Earlier Wednesday, Bieber pleaded not guilty in Florida to charges including driving under the influence after driving nearly twice the speed limit on a Miami Beach street.
Bieber remains under investigation for felony vandalism in Los Angeles County over an egg-tossing episode that damaged his neighbor’s home.
