TORONTO — Canadian pop star Justin Bieber faces new charges after he was arrested on charges of dangerous driving and assault. The allegations follow a collision between a minivan and an ATV that led to a physical altercation involving a photographer, his lawyer said Tuesday.

Ontario Provincial Police said Bieber, driving the ATV, and an occupant of the minivan “engaged in a physical altercation,” Friday afternoon near Bieber’s hometown of Stratford.

“Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of the paparazzi,” Brian Greenspan, Bieber’s Toronto lawyer, said Tuesday.

“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.”

Bieber, 20, turned himself in to a police station Monday and was arrested, then released on a promise to appear in court Sept. 29, Constable Kees Wijnands said.

Wijnands said there were no injuries as a result of the crash, but could not say whether there were any injuries from the altercation.
