TORONTO (AP) - Justin Bieber has turned himself in to Toronto police for an expected assault charge.

Bieber arrived Wednesday evening at a police station to a crush of media and screaming fans.

A police official says the charge has to do with an alleged assault on a limo driver in December. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Toronto police said in late December they were looking into allegations that a member of Bieber's entourage assaulted a limo driver who was ferrying the Canadian pop star and several others. Police said at the time it was unclear whether Bieber was involved.

A spokesman for Bieber had no comment Wednesday.

Bieber emerged from a black SUV wearing a winter coat and a backwards ball cap.

MIAMI (AP) - Justin Bieber has pleaded not guilty in to charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license in Florida.

Court records show that Bieber's attorney filed the written plea Wednesday in Miami-Dade County. Bieber already has an arraignment set for Feb. 14, but Florida law doesn't require the 19-year-old pop star to be present.

Defense attorney Mark Shapiro says a decision on whether Bieber will attend has not been made.

Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested last week in Miami Beach during what police described as an illegal street drag race between a Lamborghini and a Ferrari. Neither has been charged with drag racing.

Police say Bieber cursed at an officer and admitted to smoking marijuana, drinking and taking a prescription medication.
