Toronto police are investigating allegations that a member of Justin Bieber’s entourage assaulted a limo driver either late Sunday or early Monday morning, local law enforcement said.
“The limo driver called police saying he was assaulted by one of his fares, and his fare included the entourage of Justin Bieber,” Constable Victor Kwong with the Toronto Police Service told Entertainment Magazine.
“At this time the investigation is still ongoing as to who did it, or if anyone did it for that matter,” Kwong said, adding that the driver was not transported to a hospital for treatment.
Two of Justin Bieber’s bodyguards were also arrested after an alleged altercation with police in Florida. Bieber was in Canada when the incident occurred in Aventura, Florida, on Saturday night. Hugo Hesny (pictured) was charged with battery of a law enforcement officer and released on $10,500 bail, while Michael Arana was charged with disorderly conduct and released on $1,500 bail.
“He was there,” Kwong said when asked if Bieber was in the limo.
Cops declined to disclose the name of the limo driver or his company.
Bieiber, 19, was photographed at the Air Canada Centre taking in a Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game Sunday night.
Cops investigating the driver’s call later responded to the intersection of Dundas St. West and University Ave., about five minutes away from the hockey arena, police said.

The incident came a day after two reported members of Bieber’s security squad were arrested in Florida for allegedly turning violent at a fan event.
According to TMZ.com, bodyguards Hugo Hesny and Michael Arana were taken into custody in Miami after they became loud and disorderly at a “meetup” for Bieber’s new movie in Aventura, Fla.
The pint-sized pop star was not at the event.
A police report obtained by TMZ stated that Arana “took a fighting stance” and resisted arrest.
