Justin Bieber Assault Charge Dropped As There Was No Prospect of Conviction
Justin Bieber has had an assault charge that was filed against him withdrawn due to the fact that there is no prospect of a conviction.
The 20-year-old pop star was accused of hitting a limo driver in December of last year.
The incident was alleged to have taken place in Toronto after the singer and five other people were picked up outside a nightclub.
Police claimed that Justin hit the limo driver on the back of the head a number of times during the incident.
The charge was withdrawn today as prosecutors believed there was no prospect of conviction.
Meanwhile, the singer is due back in court soon to fight yet more charges. The singer was arrested for dangerous driving and assault. It is claimed that these charges were committed following Bieber’s collision with a minivan which led to an altercation with a photographer.
He is due to appear in court on September 29th for these charges.
The teen heart throb was also arrested in Florida earlier this year for what police claim was an illegal street race involving the pop star and his friend. Bieber pleaded guilty to charges of careless driving and resisting arrest last month. In his plea bargain he was sentenced to a $500 fine, an anger management course and a $50,000 charitable donation.
