It was Bieber-mania in Toronto, CA Wednesday, but for all the wrong reasons. Justin Bieber is back in his home country answering to assault charges after being accused of attacking a limo driver back in December.
After he was booked, police let him go and Bieber’s camp released a statement saying “we anticipate that this matter will be treated as a summery offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States.”
Yesterday, the pop star pleaded not guilty in a Florida court to driving under the influence, resisting arrest and drag racing in Miami last week, and he’s facing felony charges for allegedly egging his neighbor’s house and costing $20,000 in damages.
While Bieber is hearing cheers of support from fans, he’s getting jeers from thousands in the form of a petition demanding that he be deported. As of this morning, the petition has over 115,000 signatures, which will now force the White House to respond to it.
The petition reads in part “we would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive and drug-abusing Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked.”
