Justin Bieber's Toronto Assault Case Dropped

Pop star absolved in limo driver altercation due to lack of evidence.

Published September 8, 2014

Justin Bieber's Toronto assault case has been dismissed due to lack of evidence, prosecutors announced Monday (Sept. 8), CBC News reports. Bieber was slapped with a single assault count for an alleged attack on a limo driver last December.

The altercation took place as the pop star and five others were riding in the limo on their way to a hotel. The driver was hit in the head during an argument, at which point he “exited the vehicle and called police.” According to a police report, the man who struck him “left the scene before police arrived.” 

Bieber turned himself in to Toronto police in January, marking his second arrest to open 2014. Days before the Canada charge, Bieber was arrested for DUI in Miami, which was later reduced to careless driving as part of a plea agreement. The 20-year-old was sentenced to probation, anger management classes, and fined for the Florida bust.

Last week, the Ontario native was arrested and charged with dangerous driving and assault after an ATV collision with paparazzi.
