UPDATE: Justin Bieber charged with assault

Justin Bieber has been charged in Toronto with assault after police allege he hit a limousine driver several times in the back of the head.

The 19-year-old pop star was escorted by several police officers and a bodyguard through a teeming crowd of journalists and screaming fans when he arrived at a downtown police station tonight. Bieber was charged with one count of assault and is scheduled to appear in court in Toronto on March 10.

Police allege Bieber was one of six people who were picked up by a limousine from a nightclub in the early morning hours of December 30th, and there was an altercation while en route to a hotel. Police say during the altercation one of the passengers hit the limo driver in the back of the head several times.

Bieber turned himself in to police and spent about two hours in the station before slipping out a back exit.
