Maclean’s contributor and Toronto artist Sarah Lazarovic headed to 52 Division in Toronto on Wednesday evening after news reports suggested Justin Bieber would appear to be booked on charges related to an incident last month in Toronto.
From the CP story posted elsewhere on the site:
“In December, police told the Canadian Press that they were looking into allegations that a member of Bieber’s entourage assaulted a limo driver who was driving the Canadian pop star and several others. A police spokesman said at the time that it was unclear whether the teen heartthrob himself was involved in the alleged attack on Dec. 29, or simply one of his companions.”
Toronto Police refused to say if Bieber was about to make a showing:
