Justin Bieber Surrenders in Toronto, Lawyer Proclaims Singer's Innocence

by at . Comments

Justin Bieber's arrest record has officially gone international.

The singer turned himself in Canadian police last night and now faces criminal assault charges stemming from a night out in late December.

According to a press release from the Toronto Police Service, a limousine picked up Bieber's party around 3 a.m. on December 30, following a Toronto Maple Leafs game and a few hours inside a club.

An "altercation" then "occurred between one of the passengers and the driver," with authorities saying "a man struck the limousine driver on the back of the head several times."

The driver pulled over, called the police and the alleged culprit "left the scene" before cops arrived.

Witnesses have come forward in the past few days and said Bieber was the person who assaulted the driver.

Justin, of course, was arrested for DUI a week ago in Miami as well.

The artist's lawyer has released a statement in response to the latest charges and defended his client.

“We anticipate that this matter will be treated as a summary offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States,” says the attorney, concluding:

“Our position is that Mr. Bieber is innocent. As the matter is now before the Court, it would be inappropriate to address the specifics of either the allegation or of our defense at this time.”

Meanwhile, Bieber could ALSO face felony vandalism charges for causing over $20,000 worth of damages when he egged his neighbor's home in California a few weeks ago. Amazing.

Seriously, what has happened to this guy?!?
