Justin Bieber charged with assault and dangerous driving after quad bike crash
Justin Bieber has been charged with assault and dangerous driving after he crashed his quad bike into a minivan.
The pop star was arrested at 3pm on Friday (August 29th) near his hometown of Stratford, Ontario after apparently getting into a fight with one of the occupants of the minivan.
Bieber was released without bail and is scheduled to appear in court on September 29th.
According to BBC News, police were called and confirmed in a statement that "revealed that after colliding, the driver of the all terrain vehicle and an occupant of the minivan engaged in a physical altercation".
Bieber had been in the town for a quiet weekend with on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez, according to a statement issued by his laywer Brian Greenspan, who wrote: "Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez' 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."
Bieber has been involved in a series of run ins with police in recent months. He is currently serving two years probation for throwing eggs at his neighbour's house in LA and had previously agreed to undertake anger management classes after pleading guilty to careless driving and resisting arrest.
He is also due in court next Monday (September 8th), accused by prosecutors in Toronto of assaulting a limosine driver back in December.
The singer is currently working on the follow-up to his mutil-million selling 2012 album Believe.
