Justin Bieber Arrested While Spending Day With Selena Gomez in Canada

The 'Beauty and a Beat' singer blames paparazzi for an accident that led to his dangerous driving and assault charges.

Justin Bieber had a run-in with the law yet again. The Canadian teen star was taken into police custody during an outing with his on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez in his home country. He was charged with dangerous driving and assault Friday, August 29.

Bieber was involved in an accident near his hometown of Stratford, Ontario. He was "engaged in a physical altercation" with the driver of a minivan after his all-terrain vehicle collided with the car. The star was arrested and then released on a promise to appear in court September 29.

From the pictures that landed on the internet, Bieber was seen riding his ATV together with Gomez before the accident that led to his arrest. The accident was described as "non-major" and no one suffered injuries. No charges were made against the other driver.

His attorney Brian H. Greenspan blamed paparazzi for the collision. "Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of paparazzi," the lawyer said. "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."

A second attorney, Roy Black, issues a similar statement, "Their privacy is shredded and these incidents can become dangerous. While the public is not particularly sympathetic, they must realize how difficult these cameramen make their lives. So I am not surprised there is a conflict. It happens quite often, and as long as the paparazzi are highly paid for their photographs, they will continue."
