Justin Bieber's Legal Troubles Continue
January 30, 2014


Justin Bieber
Following his arrest for drag racing and suspicion of DUI last week, Justin Bieber's toxicology report came back positive for marijuana and anxiety medication. Urine tests processed by the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine indicate the pop singer had THC and Alprazolam (the key ingredient in anti-anxiety medication such as Xanax) in his system, according to a TMZ copy of the report. Bieber tested negative for cocaine, methamphetamines and other substances. News of the toxicology report comes one day after Bieber pleaded not guilty to charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. His arraignment is set for February 14.

Meanwhile, Bieber was all over the news again on Wednesday night when he turned himself in to Toronto police to face a charge that he allegedly assaulted a limousine driver in Toronto on December 30. Reports say the incident happened when the limousine picked up six people, including Bieber, outside a Toronto nightclub. Bieber allegedly struck the driver on the back of the head several times during an altercation on the way to a hotel, at which point the driver got out and called police.

Bieber's
Canadian lawyer issued a statement saying that the singer is innocent. "As the matter is now before the court, it would be inappropriate to address the specifics of either the allegation or of the defense at this time," the statement reads, according to Reuters. Bieber's legal team expects the matter to be treated as a summary offense, which is the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States. He will be in court for that charge on March 10.
