The Biebs has caught a break. Canadian prosecutors dropped an assault charge against pop star Justin Bieber in connection with a Dec. 30 altercation in a limousine in Toronto, CTV reported. They said it would be impossible to prove which of the six passengers in the luxury vehicle attacked the driver from behind. The trouble-prone teen idol's lawyer, Brian Greenspan, praised the decision, saying, ""This is an example of the system working effectively and properly."

Bieber still faces a charge of assault and dangerous driving in connection with an Aug. 29 collision and fight near his Canadian hometown of Stratford. Last month, he pleaded guilty to a charge of careless driving for an alleged drag race in Florida, a month after he copped a misdemeanor plea for throwing eggs at a neighbor's home in California.
