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.

You know, if this was a regular everyday joe. He turns himself in, he's charged, booked, then has to remain in custody until bail is set by a judge and a court date is determined. NOW with an everyday joe, they'd be in jail for the night because no judge is in chambers at 7 pm at night. Meh!! He'll be out in 20 minutes and in his hotel room.

Good. Now all we have to do is get customs to deny him entry back into the US and we're good to go.

Toronto doesn't have just "a PD". The population is larger than Chicago, you TMZ idiots.

Good lord, what a non-event. You'd think it was OJ or MJ. It's Canada, the justice system is EXTREMELY soft. You can murder someone in Canada and get less than 5 yrs. Not sure what kind of assault took place but my guess is there was some pushing/shoving, who knows, but I can assure you, the punishment, if any, won't amount to a slap on the wrist.
