Toronto Drops Bieber Assault Charges

TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) – Justin Bieber's legal forecast just got a little less cloudy after a prosecutors in Toronto dropped assault charges that had been leveled at the singer.

According to the Associated Press, Bieber had been charged with assault after allegedly attacking a limousine driver on December 30th, but the charge was withdrawn due to the unlikelyhood of a conviction, prosecutors said.

"The Crown would be required to prove that an intentional application of force occurred, as well as who applied that force," prosecutor David Mitchell told the court.

"There were a number of people in the vehicle seated behind the driver at the time of the incident, and the Crown is not in a position to establish the identification of the person who came into contact with the complainant beyond a reasonable doubt based on the evidence available," Mitchell added.

However, Bieber still faces charges of dangerous driving and assault stemming from an incident on Aug 29th, where Bieber allegedly got into an altercation with another driver following a motor vehicle accident in his hometown of Stratford, Ont. Bieber is due to appear in Stratford Court on Sept. 29th. – Staff Writers
