Justin Bieber

Charged With Criminal Assault

1/29/2014 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber
 has been charged with CRIMINAL ASSAULT for allegedly attacking a limousine driver ... TMZ has learned.

Justin took a limo in Toronto in December and got into some sort of skirmish.  At the time we were told a member of his entourage was being investigated for roughing up the driver.

But the investigation took a turn ... We're told Toronto cops wanted to talk to Justin but he didn't come in for an interview and they got annoyed.  Law enforcement sources say Justin is now in Toronto and in the next hour will go to the police station.

Sources say Justin will be booked for assault, given a citation and released on his own recognizance. 

Our sources say ... Justin is accused of physically attacking the limo driver ... not simply ordering the attack.

Our sources also say 3 other witnesses were interviewed yesterday and at least some of their account incriminated Justin.

A petition regarding Bieber received over 100,000 signatures. What about this petition regarding Obama reducing tuition costs ?

Btw, he is surrendering at 7pm , 52 division and although Toronto doesn't have a pack of papps, all the tv crews are outside and waiting for his arrival, I doubt he will arrive thru the front door, more likely to go thru garage and pre arranged with his high priced lawyer.

Weird. He's supposed to turn himself in at the 52 division police station, that's smack in the middle of Chinatown. Some of those cops like to get in a few sucker punches when you're not looking and out of camera range.

Justin needs to grow up,when you do'nt have a NO MAN he thinks anything he does is ok. I came across a young man name D'Moreya he has a song on YOU TUBE called "Growing UP". JB should take a listen maybe this song will touch his heart bring him back down to earth.
