He’s at it again!
Justin Bieber was arrested on assault and dangerous driving charges stemming from an alleged fight after his ATV collided with a mini-van in Canada Friday, a police spokesman told CNN Tuesday.
The alleged incident happened on a road in Perth County, Ontario, the community where Bieber, 20, lived as a child. Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez were there for a vacation. Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Kees Wijnands said the “Investigation revealed that after colliding, the driver of the ATV and an occupant of the minivan engaged in a physical altercation.”
TMZ first reported that the van was being driven by paparazzi.
Bieber’s lawyer, Brian H. Greenspan, told ABC News in a statement:
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’ peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of the 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.”
