Justin Bieber No-Show at Toronto Court Hearing on Assault Charge

TORONTO -- Justin Bieber on Monday skipped the latest hearing at the Old City Hall courthouse in Toronto regarding a recent assault charge.

The Toronto Star newspaper reports the pop star's lawyers received disclosure evidence from crown prosecutors before the case was scheduled to return to court on May 12.

Bieber is charged with assaulting a limo driver, Abdul Mohar, on December 30, 2013, after leaving a Toronto nightclub.

The Canadian pop star, who comes from nearby Stratford, Ontario, skipped his first Toronto court appearance in March after being officially charged here on Jan. 29, 2014.

Bieber in January attracted a media circus to a downtown Toronto police station when he surrendered in connection with the charge.
