Justin Bieber Arrested For ATV Accident & Assault — Facing Multiple Charges
Justin was involved in a physical interaction with the driver of the minivan after they collided with each other, TMZ reports.
Justin was released later that day and he’ll have to appear in court later this month.
“On Friday August 29, 2014 shortly before 3 p.m. Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers responded to a collision between a minivan and an All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) on Line 40 east of Road 106. Investigation revealed that after colliding, the driver of the ATV and an occupant of the minivan engaged in a physical altercation. Justin Bieber (20) of Calabasas, California U.S.A., has been charged with ‘dangerous driving’, and ‘assault,’ contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada,” a release from the Ontario Provincial Police, posted by E! News, states.
A source close to Justin tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the collision was with a paparazzo, who had been following him. Justin’s camp had no comment.
This is the second time that Justin has been arrested in Canada. He was booked on an assault charge after being accused of having a physical altercation with a limousine driver in Toronto in Jan. 2014. Overall, this is the third time Justin has been arrested.
And speaking of Justin’s long list of legal issues, he is currently on probation for two years after an egging incident in Los Angeles. There’s a chance that this arrest could trigger a violation.
