Justin Bieber Charged With Assault in Toronto

Justin Bieber turns himself in on assault charges in Toronto.
Canadian pop star Justin Bieber has been charged with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto last month.
The 19-year-old handed himself in at a Toronto police station where he was mobbed by TV crews, news photographers and screaming teenage fans.
The charge comes a week after he was arrested and charged for a separate incident in Florida for driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
A lawyer for the singer said his client was innocent.
Toronto police say that Justin Bieber was one of six people picked up by a limousine outside a nightclub in the early hours of 30 December.
"While driving the group to a hotel, an altercation occurred between one of the passengers and the driver of the limousine," a police statement said.
"In the course of the altercation, a man struck the limousine driver on the back of the head several times.
"The driver stopped the limousine, exited the vehicle and called police. The man who struck him left the scene before police arrived."
After surrendering to police on Wednesday, the singer was charged with one count of assault and is scheduled to appear in court in Toronto on 10 March.
