JustinJustin Bieber was charged Wednesday with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto a month ago, police said.

It was the 19-year-old pop star’s second arrest in a week, including a drunken driving charge that — according to Miami Beach police — lab tests show involved drugs.

A urine sample taken from Bieber after last week’s Florida arrest tested positive for marijuana and Xanax, Miami Beach police said Thursday. The police report said he admitted after his arrest that he had smoked pot and taken a prescription drug.

Bieber arrived at a Toronto police station for booking Wednesday evening amid a chaotic scene as determined photographers, reporters, screaming fans and the curious converged around his SUV. About a dozen Toronto police officers shoved their way through the crowd to escort Bieber, getting him through the door only after a struggle.

The alleged incident happened after the limo driver picked up a group of six people outside a Toronto nightclub just before 3 a.m. December 30, according to a police statement.
