The teenage pop star was charged with driving under the influence while drag racing in a Lamborghini, resisting police without violence and driving with an expired licence
Canadian pop star Justin Bieber surrendered to Toronto police Wednesday evening in connection with an alleged assault on a limo driver last month.
Bieber, 19, arrived at Toronto Police 52 Division around 7:30 pm (0030 GMT) ET in a large, black SUV.
He was ushered into the police station through a scrum of reporters and fans that had gathered outside.
Toronto TV news station CP24 showed a young girl with a message for the singer: “I love you and I’ll come to jail with you.” In the Toronto case, CBC News reported that Bieber would be officially charged at the 52 station, with a notice to appear at a later date.
Toronto police have been looking into the assault allegations stemming from a December 29 incident.
Toronto police have said they were called to the area of Dundas Street West and University Avenue that evening to investigate allegations that a member of Bieber’s entourage assaulted a limo driver.
Bieber, 19, was seen at the Air Canada Centre during that night’s hockey game, but investigators believe he was in the limo at the time of the alleged attack.
Just last week in Miami, Florida, the teenage pop star was charged with driving under the influence while drag racing in a Lamborghini, resisting police without violence and driving with an expired licence.
Earlier in January in Los Angeles, sheriff’s detectives found drugs at Bieber’s home during a vandalism investigation against the popular singer. Bieber is suspected in the vandalism case of pelting a neighbour’s house with eggs, but not in the drug discovery which was found with his friend.
In one of the quirky overlaps of entertainment and politics, more than 150,000 US residents have put their signatures on a petition to the White House to demand the US government deport the entertainer.
Bieber has legal residence in the United States.
The signers agreed with the statement that Bieber wrongly represented the world of pop culture, was a risk to public safety and a terrible influence on “our nation’s youth.” “We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive and drug abusing Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked,” the petition on the White House’s We the People, says the website.
