TORONTO (AP) — Justin Bieber has turned himself in to Toronto police for an expected assault charge.
The baby-faced 19-year-old arrived Wednesday evening at a police station to a crush of media and screaming fans.
A police official said the charge has to do with an alleged assault on a limo driver in December. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
Toronto police said in late December they were looking into allegations that a member of Bieber’s entourage assaulted a limo driver who was ferrying the Canadian pop star and several others. Police said at the time it was unclear whether Bieber was involved.
A spokesman for Bieber had no comment Wednesday.
Bieber emerged from a black SUV wearing a winter coat and a backwards ball cap before being led through a throng of police and reporters.
