Justin Bieber has been charged with dangerous driving and assault following an altercation in his Ontario, Canada on Friday. He was involved in a collision between a minivan and an all-terrain vehicle that led to a fight.
A spokesperson for Ontario Provincial Police told the Associated Press Bieber was released on a promise to appear in court on September 29. Last month, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanour charges of careless driving and resisting arrest seven months after he was booked in Miami Beach, Florida.
Bitty’s lawyer told People: ‘Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez‘s peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of paparazzi. This has regrettably resulted in charges of dangerous driving and assault. Mr. Bieber and Ms. Gomez have fully cooperated in the police investigation.
We are hopeful that this matter will be quickly resolved. Justin, like many celebrities are continually harassed by police. Their privacy is shredded and these incidents can become dangerous. While the public is not particular sympathetic,
They must realize how difficult these cameramen make their lives. So I am not surprised there is a conflict.It happens quite often, and as long as the paparazzi are highly paid for their photographs, they will continue.’ None of this an excuse to drive like an idiot!
