Justin Bieber

Attacked Limo Driver from Behind

Justin Bieber was charged with assault in Toronto because he allegedly bashed a limo driver in the back of the head.

Toronto Police have released new details of the Dec. 30 incident ... and say the limo driver had picked up 6 passengers around 2:50 AM -- including Justin -- when a fight broke out between the driver and "one of the passengers."

Cops say the passenger -- allegedly Justin -- hit the limo driver in the back of the head "several times" during the fight, and when the driver stopped to call police ... Justin fled the scene.

Bieber turned himself in last night -- what a scene -- to face the assault charge.

Bieber's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, says he expects this will be treated like a low level crime -- the equivalent of a misdemeanor is the U.S.  And, Weitzman says, "Our position is Mr. Bieber is innocent."

As a Former Canadian L.E.O..

There is no such thing as a misdemeanor in Canada.

All Crimes are Felons.

They all require permanant records.

The only difference is the methood at Trial.

Summery Conviction =18Months Jail and 3 Yrs Probation;

Indictment = 10 Years Prison first offence.

If Convicted for any of the above he would be barred from entry into the USA with out a Special VISA/Permit.

If you are having difficulty understanding Canadian Criminal Law .

Ask a Canadian Lawyer.

Really? What 19 yr old hasn't drank alcohol, got in a fight, drove a car too fast? I get the Biever Fever is almost cured, but Justin is not the train wreck everyone is making him out to be!!

If the limo driver was hit from behind, how does he know that it was Justin who hit him? Regardless of whether or not Justin did this, I have a feeling that the charges will not stick unless there is a video or strong witness testimony.

He is not a boy or a child, and it's pathetic that how many morons don't get this fact. He is old enough to vote, old enough to join the military, old enough to marry, and able to legally drink alcohol in many places, including his own country. If you still consider this a child please work to change the voting laws to reflect it. At least it would ensure the ones you view as children aren't making decisions for the rest of us. I know there are stupid people who keep saying everyone was drinking, driving fast, getting high, physically attacking others, and being a complete douchebag at that age, but not all of us behaved like a$$hats. Excusing douchebag behavior simply because others behaved similarly is nonsense. Should we start excusing rape, murder, animal abuse because others have done those things? No, you only want it when it benefits the morons you idolize.
