Justin Bieber may be about to jump out of the frying pan and into the fire.

The Canadian superstar has reportedly agreed to return to Toronto and face charges in connection to the December assault of a limo driver.

CBC News reports that Bieber is expected to arrive in Toronto on Wednesday, and surrender himself to 52 Division. Bieber would reportedly be released with a promise to appear in court at a later date.

The charges would stem from an incident on Dec. 29, 2013, in which Toronto police have said a limo driver was attacked in the Dundas Street West area, while driving Bieber and his entourage.

Bieber was seen in attendance at a Toronto Maple Leafs game that evening.

If Bieber is indeed en route to Canada to face charges, he is leaving America under inauspicious conditions.

The 19-year-old performer was charge last week with driving under the influence and resisting arrest after being stopped while reportedly drag racing down a street.

A petition submitted to the White House calling for Bieber to be deported and have his green card revoced has garnered more than 130,000 signatures, meaning the White House is required to respond to the request.

It's not a good time to be Bieber in the U.S. Sadly for the boy wonder, it's not a great time to be him in Canada, either.
