TORONTO, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Justin Bieber's legal troubles are piling up.

The 19-year-old pop star, who was arrested on drunk driving and drag racing charges in Miami last week, turned himself in to a Toronto police station Wednesday, the CBC reported.

Bieber is reportedly there to be booked on charges regarding the alleged assault of a Toronto limousine driver last month.

Toronto police have yet to confirm Bieber's involvement.

"I can only confirm that there was an investigation into the allegation of assault on a limo operator by one of his fares," Constable Victor Kwong told People.

Bieber attended a Toronto Maple Leafs game on December 29, the night police were called to investigate a possible attack in a limo.

Back in Miami, Bieber's attorney pleaded not guilty to drunk driving charges on the singer's behalf.

His arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 14, though Bieber won't have to appear in court in person.
