Justin Bieber charged with assault after holiday quad bike crash in Ontario
It is the latest in a long line of run-ins with the police for the Canadian pop star
Justin Bieber has been charged with assault and dangerous driving after crashing his quad bike into a minivan while on holiday.
The singer was arrested near his hometown of Stratford, Ontario, after getting into a fight with another driver.
The star, 20, already faces an assault charge in Toronto following an altercation between a limo driver and a passenger last December and is expected in court next Monday to answer that charge.
Bieber’s lawyer, Brian Greenspan, said in an emailed statement: "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."
This is the latest in a long line of run-ins with the police. Bieber is serving two years probation for throwing eggs at his neighbour’s house in Los Angeles.
