Justin Bieber arrested, charged with assault and dangerous driving after ATV crash
Justin Bieber just can't seem to get along with the law. The 20-year-old was arrested and charged with assault and dangerous driving for crashing an ATV into a paparazzo’s minivan in Ontario over the long weekend. Biebs was enjoying time off with Selena Gomez (guess they’re back on AGAIN) near his dad’s home in Stratford when the accident occurred.

The pop star was arrested on Friday and Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Kees Wijnands has just issued more details about the incident. He's quoted by ET Canada as saying that "Perth County Provincial Police responded to a call about an accident involving an ATV and a mini-van. Investigation revealed, the driver of ATV and an occupant of mini-van engaged in a physical altercation."

"Bieber was arrested and has been charged with two counts of criminal code offenses, dangerous driving and assault," Wijnands continued. "He has since been released on a 'promise to appear' and agreed to attend court in Stratford, Ontario, Canada on September 29th."

We understand that being followed by papz everywhere you go can get annoying quick, but still! Jeez, JB, there's gotta be a better way to handle these kinds of situations since they're GOING TO KEEP HAPPENING. At least Bieber and Gomez are said to be fully cooperating with police...
