Justin Bieber's Crime Spree (Alleged) 2014 continues. On Friday, the singer was arrested after being involved in a vehicular accident in Ontario, Canada.
According to Perth County, Ontario police, when officers arrived at the scene of a crash between a minivan and an all terrain vehicle, they found an occupant of the minivan and the driver of the ATV "engaged in a physical altercation." It's not clear which one of those two was Justin, but he was arrested at the scene and changed with dangerous driving and assault. He now has a court date in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario on September 29.
TMZ reported that the minivan was being driven by paparazzi. The website also noted that on Friday, Justin and Selena Gomez were seen riding an ATV together near his dad's home in Ontario.
Justin's lawyer 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.”
So far this year, Justin's escaped serious consequences for allegedly egging his neighbor's house in Calabasas, CA, and for a DUI in Miami, Florida. He's also been named in a variety of lawsuits involving his bodyguards roughing up photographers and fans who attempt to take a picture of him.
