An assault charge against Justin Bieber stemming from an apparent limo fight back in December has been dropped. On Monday morning prosecutors announced that the charges had been withdrawn at the request of the Crown.
“We welcome the decision of the office of the Crown Attorney to withdraw the charge, having reached the conclusion that there was no reasonable prospect of conviction,” Bieber’s attorney, Brian Greenspan said in a statement.
He added, “We have always maintained Mr. Bieber’s innocence. The withdrawal of the charge is the product of a thorough and thoughtful review of the evidence by responsible prosecutors. We thank them for their consideration.”
On December 30, the pop star along with five other people were in a limo in Toronto when one of the passengers supposedly got into a fight with the driver. During the altercation, one of the passengers allegedly hit the driver in the back of the head multiple times.
Bieber’s legal woes are far from over though. Last week, the star was arrested on assault and dangerous driving charges. The 20-year-old was cruising around on an ATV with his on-again off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez near Ontario when he slammed into a minivan driven by a paparazzo. After the accident, a physical altercation broke out between Justin and the victim.
The “Confident” singer, who is currently on probation in Los Angeles for egging his neighbors home earlier this year, was released and ordered to appear in court later this month.
From Gangsta To Gospel … Snoop Dogg Shuts Down Critics Of His Spiritual Album
Who says a gangsta rapper can’t drop a gospel album — apparently, the critics.
Snoop Dogg released his spiritual effort, Bible Of Love, today and unfortunately some folks just don’t understand why. Thankfully, we talked to Uncle Snoop and he let the haters know they won’t be dulling his shine.
“My spirit is in the right place,” Snoop proclaimed, “so for those who have backlash or something to say, their spirit ain’t right.” But Unc didn’t stop there, he went on a preached a word right quick … “I thought the Bible said Jesus was in the streets mixing it up with the real, bringing the real back to the fold.” Yep, yep, that’s exactly right!
But just because he has a gospel album doesn’t mean Snoop ain’t still street. “I come from the hood and I come from the church so they can’t out do me,” he reminded us.
Do you agree with The Doggfather’s message?
