Justin Bieber entered a “tiny” downtown Toronto police station on Jan. 29, 2014, turning himself in regarding an alleged assault that took place last month, according to Canada’s National Post. Despite his recent troubles, a sea of fans gathered at the location to offer their support.
The report indicates Bieber entered the station shortly after 7:30 p.m. local time, which elicited “hysterical screams” from a bevy of fans.
The Post notes that just before his arrival, around 100 people had gathered outside of the 52 Division station in 10 degree weather just to get “the slightest glimpse” of Bieber.
According to Time, Bieber, 19, is accused of assaulting a limousine driver on Dec. 29, 2013. After Toronto Police investigated the matter, it seemed unclear whether Bieber was the subject of the criminal complaint or if someone traveling with him was accused of the attack.
Time notes that on Wednesday, Bieber was officially charged with assault in the matter.
Last week, the singer was arrested in Miami for allegedly driving under the influence, resisting arrest, and driving with an expired license.
According to Time, police say Bieber admitted he had smoked pot, had taken prescription medications, and had been drinking.
