Justin Bieber didn't attend a court proceeding related to an assault charge he faces in Toronto, but that didn't prevent his fans from showing up anyway.

About a dozen young women gathered at a downtown courthouse hoping the Canadian pop sensation would at least be looped in via a video link -- although that didn't happen either.

Instead a subsequent hearing was set for April 14 -- another proceeding Bieber isn't obliged to attend in person.

Police allege Bieber hit a limousine driver several times in the back of the head after he and five others were picked up by a limo in the early hours of December 30th.

Bieber turned himself in to Toronto Police in January to face the charge, drawing a crowd of jostling journalists and deliriously screaming fans.

The 19-year-old Stratford native was charged with one count of assault and spent about two hours in the station before slipping out a back exit.
