Justin Bieber Arrested in ATV Accident

Pacific Coast News

Justin Bieber has reportedly been arrested after getting into an ATV accident with paparazzi.

According to TMZ, the 20-year-old singer was riding on his ATV when he crashed into a minivan of paparazzi on Friday, Aug. 29 in Canada. Bieber, who allegedly also had a physical altercation with a paparazzo after the incident, is currently facing charges of dangerous driving and assault, the site reports. He was released the same day.

“Investigation revealed that after colliding, the driver of the ATV and an occupant of the minivan engaged in a physical altercation,” Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Kees Wijnands said (quote via CNN).

Bieber had been riding his ATV with Selena Gomez during the day, though it is unclear if she was on the vehicle when he hit the van. That being said, the Biebs’ lawyer told TMZ that both Bieber and Gomez are cooperating in the police investigation.

Pacific Coast News reports that both Bieber and Gomez were not wearing helmets during their ATV ride and were driving on a public road — both of which are prohibited by Canadian law. According to the photo agency, Bieber was teaching Gomez how to ride the vehicle and showing her how to use the controls. You can check out those photos below.

TMZ reports that Bieber’s arrest could trigger his probation in the egg-throwing case. This is also far from the singer’s first run-in with the paparazzi — his most recent involving a car accident with photographers in L.A. last week.

Selena has a smile on her face as she takes control of the vehicle, hair blowing in the breeze.
