It's been a week of legal woes for JUSTIN BIEBER, who CBS reports, "was charged with assault for allegedly hitting a TORONTO limousine driver several times in the back of the head last month, just hours after his attorney entered a separate not guilty plea in FLORIDA (NET NEWS 1/23) to drunken-driving and other charges."
BIEBER turned himself in to TORONTO police YESTERDAY (1/29), and is charged with one count of assault. He is scheduled to appear in court on MARCH 10th.
"Police allege BIEBER was one of six people who were picked up by a limousine from a nightclub in the early morning hours of DEC. 30th, and there was an altercation while en route to a hotel," notes CBS. "Police said that, during the altercation, one of the passengers hit the limo driver in the back of the head several times."
"The driver stopped the limousine, exited the vehicle and called police," a statement said. "The man who struck him left the scene before police arrived."
