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

by at .  Updated 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.

Justin Bieber Mug Shot
Justin Bieber looks pretty darn happy here in his mug shot, doesn't he? Perhaps that's because he is under the influence of... something.

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?!?

Too much too soon and it's all gone to his head. When over night sensations happen, this kind of stuff almost always happens. They think their fame protects them from the law and their money can buy them a free get out of jail card. They think they are above the law and can do as they please. His 'team' needs to stop 'letting' him get away with things, stop covering for him, and start making him act like an adult. He's turning into another Lohan....the only reason he still has his 'fame' is because of all the 12 and 13 year old girls....he will never be a rock star to adults.
