Justin Bieber

Limo Assault Triggered By Radio Music

EXCLUSIVE

0131-justin-bieber-02

Justin Bieber has been criminally charged in Canada for assaulting a limo driver ... and TMZ has learned the whole dispute was triggered by the volume of the radio.

Here's what we're told by sources... Justin was cruising along in Toronto in the back seat of the limo when he wanted the driver to turn up the noise ... on the radio.

The driver turned it up ... but not as much as Justin wanted, and an argument erupted. 

According to one of our sources ... the argument became physical when Justin reached his arm out to turn up the radio himself ... and the driver swatted his hand away.

The limo driver claims Justin started screaming profanities ... then smacked him several times in the head.

Bieber's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, says his client is "innocent," and a source connected with Bieber insists it was one of Justin's friends -- not Justin -- who hit the driver.  The source would not reveal the identity of the friend.

I'm thinking Western Canada should separate. Be nice to not be associated with both Justine (blame someone else) Bieber and Rob (I've got enough to eat at home) Ford.

You mean someone tried to say "no" to him? You mean someone wouldn't let him do what he wanted? Good for you Mr. Limo Driver for standing up to that punk!

Hey numb-nuts or whoever writes this crap at TMZ. Justin Bieber was not charged with drag racing so this whole issue of his speed at the time of he was pulled over is MEANINGLESS. The only issue is did the police have probable cause to stop him. And the likely did. So much for your scoop! Get the straight facts here: http://bit.ly/1aWh7Jq

If someone swats my hand, you can bet your ass I'm defending myself by landing a retaliatory smack or two myself! He should not have been charged with this either! I don't like his music but it seems the world is hell bent on screwing with this kid!

The radio station was apparently z103.5 the best station in Toronto. He's still a douche though

A source connected to Bieber, says. Problem with that TMZ, you are the ones that stated the Toronto Police have three witnesses that fingered Bieber for the hitting. You can spin this all you want but if you think changing facts is fun, have at it.

You ignorant people are the problem not Justin. Y'all made Justin the way he is so clean up your mess and stop blaming innocent people. People can only take so much bullying before they snap and well look at Justin now. All Obama has to do or the government has to do is look at the comments on his music videos starting in 2009 until now and they'll realize why Justin is the way he is right now not hard to figure out why. Justin needs help not hate. If anyone should be sent away it should be the people who claim to hate Justin, send them to an island far away from us sane people who want society to get better.
