Justin Bieber

Limo Assault Triggered By Radio Music

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.

@AwkardPlusInsaneCheerios, The first sign of insanity is the claim of sanity. Justin has not been bullied to the point of acting like a douchebag, because that isn't what happens. He acts like a douchebag because he is a douchebag. The how and why he came to be said douchebag is irrelevant to how it is addressed. He has a mom and dad whom place more value on money than they do their own child, or they would never allow him to get this bad. If the part of the population who believe in personal responsibility and accountability are whom you blame I can help you solve the issue.1. Gather up the others who make excuses and rationalize bad behavior. 2. Move to a safe place free from those of us who accept responsibility and are accountable for our own behavior. 3. Invite the drug abusers, murderers, rapists, thieves, and others you feel aren't responsible for their own behavior, to live there with you. 4. Try to change them with nice words and allow them to take no responsibility for what they do against you. 5. Recognize that people behave the way they choose even if they are coddled. 6. If you survive the ordeal, just apologize to the rest of us for not having a clue about people being responsible for their own behavior.
