Justin Bieber hands himself in at Toronto police station

CANADIAN pop star Justin Bieber has walked into a Toronto police station, where police sources say he will face a charge in connection with an alleged assault involving a limousine driver in late December.

CBC News reports that Toronto police say they were called to the area of Dundas Street West and University Avenue on the evening of Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013.

Bieber, 19, attended a Toronto Maple Leafs game that evening at the Air Canada Centre.

At the time, police told The Canadian Press they were investigating an assault allegation but said it was unclear whether it was Bieber or a member of his entourage who was the subject of a complaint.

Police sources told CBC News Bieber would arrive in Toronto today and be officially charged at the 52 Division police station with a notice to appear at a later date.

In a tweet, Toronto police said they could not confirm the information.

100,000 sign petition to have Justin Bieber deported back to Canada

JUSTIN Bieber could be deported back to Canada after over 100,000 people signed a petition to have him removed from the US.

The 19-year-old singer - who is from Ontario - may be asked to leave the country and have his green card revoked by the White House after an official We The People campaign against him received more than 100,000 signatures in just six days.

The government promises to review and respond to a petition once it receives more than 100,000 signatures in 30 days.

The campaign comes after the 'Beauty and A Beat' hitmaker was arrested last week in Miami for driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an expired license and resisting arrest.

The petition reads: "We the people of the United States ... would like to see the dangerous, destructive, and drug abusing Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked ...

"He is not only threatening the safety of our people, but he is also a terrible influence on our nation's youth.We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."

Meanwhile, as well as facing legal problems in Miami, Justin could also potentially face felony charges after an incident where one of his neighbours' homes was egged, causing $20,000 of damage. Officers for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department said they will soon be submitting evidence to the District Attorney, who will then decide whether to press charges.
