Justin Bieber: Assault Charges Dropped by Toronto Prosecutors

by at .

With all of the many criminal charges against him, it's amazing that Justin Bieber can remember all of his court dates.

Bieber was arrested for assault after attacking a photographer in Canada last week, and this morning he showed up in a Toronto court to stand trial for an incident in which he allegedly attacked a limo driver back in December.

The Biebs received some unexpected good news, as prosecutors announced that the charges against him had been dropped.

It was apparently determined that there was no way to prove who had actually made contact with the driver, as there were five other people in the limo besides Justin, and no reliable testimony from eye witnesses.

Bieber was charged with criminal assault in January of this year, shortly after being arrested for a DUI incident.

While he'll avoid prosecution for his first assault case in Canada, it remains to be seen if authorities will determine that Bieber violated his probation by attacking a different man last week.

Probation officers have 30 days from the time of the September 2 incident to decide if Bieber's most recent assault was a violation of the terms of his probation.

If they go that route, then even a slap on the wrist from the next Toronto judge could result in jail time for Justin.
