Justin Bieber was charged Wednesday with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto a month ago, police said.
Bieber arrived at a Toronto police station for booking Wednesday evening amid a chaotic scene as determined photographers, reporters, screaming fans and the curious converged around his SUV. About a dozen Toronto police officers shoved their way through the crowd to escort Bieber, getting him through the door only after a struggle.
The alleged incident happened after the limo driver picked up a group of six people outside a Toronto nightclub just before 3 a.m. on December 30, according to a police statement.
“While driving the group to a hotel, an altercation occurred between one of the passengers and the driver of the limousine,” the 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.”
Bieber left the Toronto police station Wednesday night, according to a reporter for CTV.
The singer attended a Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game at the Air Canada Centre earlier in the evening, according to the CBC.
Bieber is set to appear in a Toronto court on March 10, police said.
This is the 19-year-old pop star’s second arrest in a week.
