The controversial politician - who last year admitted to smoking crack cocaine - has spoken in favor of the 'Confident' singer after he was charged with assaulting a limousine driver in his city yesterday (29.10.14).
Speaking on Canadian radio, he said: "Well, you know what, he's a young guy. At 19 years old, I wish I was as successful as he was. He's 19 years old, guys. Think back to when you were 19."
Police allege Justin was one of six people who got in the limo in the early hours of December 30, and there was an altercation while on the way to a hotel where one passenger hit the driver in the back of the head a number of times before running away. Justin's lawyer claims he is innocent.
An arraignment has been set for February 14, but Justin - a native of Canada - is not required to appear.
He captioned it: "Safe and sound. #homesweethome."
The insider told E! news: "He's happy to be with family. He's going to spend some time with them and is doing his best to keep focused and not be distracted. He's learning from the experiences of the past couple of weeks and knows it's time to move on and refocus his attention on work and family."
