Just Bieber has provided us with plenty of news and entertainment in the first month of 2014, already marking the New Year as a treacherous one for the Canadian singer.
As seen so often with teen stars, Justin Beiber has gone off of the rails, constantly experiencing run ins with the police for unlawful behaviour.
Just last Wednesday we saw Bieber arrested for racing a Lamborghini through the streets of Miami, breaching the conditions of is license whilst drunk and under the influence of Cannabis.
Last month it hit the news that Bieber was involved in an assault against a limo driver who was repeatedly hit in the back of the head whilst chauffeuring the teenager and his entourage.
Police say that at the time of initial arrest it was unclear whether the singer had any active involvement in the assault or was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“The driver stopped the limousine, exited the vehicle and called police,” a statement said. “The man who struck him left the scene before police arrived”
Howard Weitzman, Bieber’s attorney in California, claimed Bieber to be innocent and expects the case to be treated as a summary offense, which is the equivalent of a misdemeanour in the United States.
“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. We anticipate that this matter will be treated as a summary offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States,” he said in a statement.
