Lawyer's advice for 'Biebs': Time to grow up

Pop star Justin Bieber has been charged with assault in connection to an incident last month involving a limousine driver. 

Bieber, 19, arrived at the station Wednesday evening in an SUV, and was escorted by about a dozen officers as he pushed through a crowd of journalists, onlookers and screaming fans to enter the building. 

The alleged assault occurred just before 3 a.m. on December 30 outside a Toronto nightclub, according to police.

"While driving the group to a hotel, an altercation occurred between one of the passengers and the driver of the limousine," read a police statement. "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."

The pop star's representative wrote in a statement Wednesday to CNN, "Our position is that Mr. Bieber is innocent."

"As the matter is now before the court, it would be appropriate to address the specifics of either the allegation or of our defense at this time," according to the statement.

Bieber left the police station later Wednesday night, according to CTV. He is due in a Toronto court on March 10, police said.

It's the singer's second arrest in about a week's time. He and fellow singer Khalil Sharieff were arrested last week in Miami Beach, Florida, while allegedly street racing in their exotic cars. Police say that Bieber admitted to drinking, smoking marijuana and taking prescription pills. He was later released on $2,500 bail.

Tuesday, a Miami-Dade County judge set a February 14 court date for Bieber on charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license.

Bieber is also under investigation in Los Angeles over a vandalism incident at his neighbor's house. The neighbor claims Bieber egged his house, causing $20,000 in damage.
