Stratford-born Justin Bieber may be trying really hard to rehab his image lately but there is one Toronto-based limousine driver who still wants an apology, in the form of a large cheque.
Torontonians may remember in January 2014 when the pop star turned himself into 52 division in downtown Toronto after being charged for allegedly assaulting a driver who picked him up from Time nightclub following a Toronto Maple Leafs game in the early hours of December 30th, 2013. The criminal charges were later dropped, due to a lack of evidence, however, the driver isn't ready to put a fork in it.
Abdul Mohar, 34, wants compensation in the form of $850,000 as well as a court order preventing Bieber from coming within 100 metres of him. He filed documents on Friday alleging that the singer punched him in the head repeatedly after he received a notification from Uber and picked up a group of men in the heart of Toronto's entertainment district. While travelling the group to a nearby hotel Mohar claims he refused to turn the music louder and was punched approximately six times in the head by a man he would later discover was Bieber.
We will have to wait and see if Bieber wants to include Mohar on his apology tour of 2015. In the meantime you can watch Bieber's Comedy Central Roast on Monday, March 30th.
