Justin Bieber Arrested for Dangerous Driving and Assault in Canada -VIDEO

Justin-Bieber-Trouble-CANADA

Justin Bieber was arrested on Aug. 29 in his native Canada, authorities said.

According to the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), Justin allegedly collided with a minivan while driving an all terrain vehicle. He was charged with dangerous driving and assault.

OPP Constable Kees Wijnands told reporters that the assault charge came after Justin got into an altercation with a man inside the van, while the dangerous driving charge was the result of driving that led to “a danger to the public.”

While Wijnands did not give any more specifics, he did add that another person was on the ATV with Justin at the time of the incident. Paparazzi photos revealed that that same day, he was driving an ATV with his on-again girlfriend, Selena Gomez.

JB’s lawyer, Brian H. Greenspan, told ABC News in a statement:

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of paparazzi. 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.

Another lawyer also defended JB’s actions, saying:

Many celebrities are continually harassed by police. Their privacy is shredded and these incidents can be dangerous. While the public is not particularly sympathetic, they must realise how difficult these cameramen make their lives so I am not surprised there is conflict. It happens quite often, and as long as the paparazzi are highly paid for their photographs, they will continue.

The authorities added that Justin was released shortly thereafter and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Stratford on Sept. 29. Wijnands said that it would also be acceptable for an attorney to appear on Justin’s behalf.

According to TMZ, Justin’s latest brush with the law could have serious repercussions, since he’s currently on probation for two years after egging his neighbor’s L.A. house, and it’s possible his Ontario arrest could be seen as a parole violation.

    gosh!i really dont know what to say and i hope hes ok…

  • Niaj

    It’s funny how paparazzi was on Jeremy’s private ranch as in if paparazzi was on it, that’d be consider trespassing and how come only justin was charged when Selena was driving too?

    • RB

      Justin was driving the ATV, Selena was the passenger.

      • Niaj

        She was driving it too

      • RB

        She was not driving the ATV at the time of the incident; she was a passenger what’s why she was not charged.
        God bless you!

  • Azaria Paris Magee

    Ugh, he really needs to stop this crap. Yes, the paps shouldn’t have been on Jeremy’s property, but as a celebrity you have to deal with them in a professional way. If he’s not careful he’s going to damage his career. If he gets put on probation that says he can’t leave the country (not sure how Canada’s legal system work, but the states can stop you even leaving the state) he’ll be stuck in Canada with no way to promote new music. I really hope he can get through this and nothing bad comes his way, but he’s bringing it all upon himself. He used to be such a peaceful person, what’s going on?

    • RB

      Don’t be quick to judge. Laws in other countries work differently. Read my comment and go to the web address for more information.

      • ok_then_now

        Canada’s laws are different.. Charges are laid before an investigation begins. It is done in reverse in the U.S.A.

    • skittles

      noone at my school likes him. His career is already tanking. No one talks about his music anymore it’s all the stupid stuff he does. He needs to grow up.

      • Azaria Paris Magee

        Once you start getting into trouble that’s the focus of you. Nobody cares about your music anymore. Look at any celebrity that’s had drug/alcohol problems, legal problems, or mental health problems….. Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes… nobody cared about their work, just their antics. Britney has since had a comeback and got back on top, Lindsay is still trying, Amanda is still kinda irrelevant. Justin needs to really, really impress with the new music or else he’ll be over. Once you become a token troublemaker that’s your label until you prove otherwise. This just further proves to people that he’s nothing but trouble, which is exactly what he doesn’t need. Assault is not appealing at all, and where his fanbase is made largely of younger girls it’s going to make them not like him. Except Lalaini who I guaranatee is below these comments confessing her love for him. I haven’t scrolled yet, but I’m guessing.

      • ALEKSANDER

        Polish Beliebers’ll be support Justin Bieber because he’s good man & victim of plot degenerates !

      • Azaria Paris Magee

        He’s not a victim, he’s at fault for everything he’s done. He’s not a bad person, but he’s definitely not the victim in any of his legal problems.

      • ALEKSANDER

        Justin Bieber’s victim !

      • Azaria Paris Magee

        Since when is someone that assaults someone a victim? No, the paparazzi was a victim. They’ll always stalk you, no matter where you are, and as a celebrity you have to accept it. If he didn’t want to be followed around by them he shouldn’t have done music.

      • ok_then_now

        WTF is wrong with YOU??? Do you think stalkers and creeps who trespass on private property have a right to be there? That somehow since Justin Bieber is famous that he gives up all rights to privacy and that his father Jeremy also gives up his rights to determine who is allowed on his private property as well? Jeremy has two young kids to protect not just his older son.. If this had been Jeremy instead I think these trespassers would have got a worse beating. This is all allegations at this point regarding Justin anyway.. IN Canada the way the law works is that charges are laid first..Then an investigation is launched. In the U.S.A. the way the law works is different, an investigation is launched first then charges laid.

      • Belieber 4 Eva

        Exactly and I’m sick of these god damn hoes ad fake beliebers y’all pissin me off now

      • ok_then_now

        You think it is his fault that paparazzi chase after him constantly? One was already killed stepping into traffic trying to get pictures of he thought was Justin driving.. It turned out it was one of Justin’s buddies behind the wheel.. That paparazzi ended up getting run over and killed by traffic. Many times Justin has had to call 9-1-1 because these paparazzi were putting his life in danger on the road.. This was Jeremy’s property and it wasn’t in a suburb where there was other traffic. This was his acreage that these paparazzi trespassed on and chased after Justin with their cars while he was driving on a dirt road with his ATV. But you think Justin deserved being chased with cars and it’s all his fault that these paparazzi put his life in danger. I bet if he got hit by a car while on his ATV while on his dad’s property by these paparazzi, you would be here saying it was all his fault because he is famous and should expect this.

      • Guest

        They weren’t chasing him, or at least there’s no proof they were. The photos were taken from a distance. Having said that, the paparazzi are still annoying and need to back off, but let’s not blame it all on them.

      • Guest

        Just realized that the minivan belonged to the paparrazi, I didn’t know that, apologies.

      • Sandy Bondwest

        That was on his dad property and on his instragam you see a van a and surban on his dads property.

      • Azaria Paris Magee

        For one, most of your information is deluded and not based on any facts. Numerous articles say “near Jeremy’s home”. This means that it was NOT on his property, therefore Justin was on public property for the accident, not private property, so therefore the paparazzo did nothing wrong. The vehicle would not have been on the property, the altercation happened after the collision. The paparazzi are crazy, but when you get famous it’s part of the fame package. If you were to become famous for singing, acting, or any other such thing you’d likely get paparazzi following you. You’d have to deal with it. There’s no laws against paparazzi, though I’m honestly surprised with all the accidents that have happened as a result, so the paparazzi did nothing wrong. Justin clearly has some anger problems. This is the second time this year he’s assaulted someone and the third time he’s been arrested. Read that part again because it’s clearly not sinking in. The paparazzi are going to be after him more if they know they can get a story like this. He’s a person that there’s interest in, and if you want the truth, it’s the Belieber’s fault. You are interested in him so they know they can get pictures, sell the story, and people will read it. It’s a business, Justin has dealt with them enough that they really shouldn’t phase him at all. Obviously some paparazzi can be reckless, such as the one that you mentioned that got killed, as well as the one that got their foot run over by Britney Spears because they were in the way while she was driving. From what I’ve read though this particular case was Justin’s fault. Stop trying to minimize Justin’s faults, he’s clearly got some problems he’s not sorting out. He’s turning into the next Lindsay Lohan. If he doesn’t smarten up it WILL affect his career, and I know no one on here wants that. I’m fed up with his legal problems, it’s really a turn off to him in general. So thanks for your input, I’m glad you’re able to talk as if you know what you’re talking about, but you should try and get facts before trying to defend someone that’s guilty.

      • Belieber 4 Eva

        First of all they weren’t chasing him on Justin’s property ur right but Jeremy himself said tht the paps was chasing jousting on his property now what could have happend was just saw them and went to his fathers place and the paps followed tht is Justin’s father and to the paparazzi it just so done to swarm about asking about affairs or what he should do with Justin’s life and bull crap like tht but I got one thing coming ur way on this website we got some real beliebers and we don’t like when haters come out of nowhere and say shit about our idol so expect some seriousness things coming ur way now this u can’t call immature it crap cuz this will actually happen to U

      • Sandy Bondwest

        Canada has a stricter privacy law and it’s say if the person on private land no photos of him should be taking. his dads land is private land. Their those paparazzi lawyered up so fast but they didn’t lawyer up with a canadian lawyer. They went who was a famous t.v judges but now is a lawyer. That could be a huge problem for them hope she knows canadian law. Could end up.

    • ok_then_now

      For one thing.. These paparazzi were trespassing and have been harassing him and Selena constantly since they arrived in Canada. We don’t know all the details yet, but it has come out that he was being chased by paparazzi while he was on his ATV. What professional manner are you talking about? You think it is professional for these paparazzi to invade private property and put lives at risk by chasing after Justin and his passenger with their cars?? They could have hit him instead and seriously hurt Justin and his passenger.. Enough is enough with these paparazzi putting people’s lives in danger.. This is not the first time paparazzi have chased Justin and put his life in danger.. How many times does that have to happen before a serious accident happens?? You do realize that it is dangerous? How ignorant to assume Justin is putting this on himself.. What person wants their life put in danger constantly by cars cutting you off or tailgating you, following you constantly? In this case it was cars vs ATV, guess which one is bigger, heavier and more dangerous? The police can’t follow Justin around 24/7 and protect him from dangerous drivers such as these paparazzi.. How is he supposed to deal with that on a almost daily basis? Do you want Justin to say please and thank you to these paparazzi for putting his life in danger?

      • Sandy Bondwest

        They are looking at the property line. plus after a day Jermey had to call the police again on the paparazzi.

    • Belieber 4 Eva

  • ALEKSANDER

    Degenerates’ve started campaign against Justin Bieber in order to destroy him ! God save Justin !

  • ivan

    Paps have been nothing but trouble for Justin and i think they sometimes to things to make him screw up so they can sue him for money; this has happened already. The fact is those two paps were TRESPASSING ON HIS FATHER’S PROPERTY and when Justin got out of his car to talk to them, they charged him with assault although Justin never touched him. In Canada, you merely have to accuse a person of threatening you and you could be arrested; but he most probably will be cleared or settle.

    • Guest

      That’s not what happened, the altercation was between him and the driver of the minivan he crashed into, he’s not even accused of assaulting the papparazi. Just shows how much you know. Making excuses as usual Ivan.

      • ivan

        You assume you know if Justin even threatened them; there

      • MARZ8734 .

        Threatened who? He’s not accused of threatening the papparazzi. He’s accused of assault and by the looks of things it was between him and driver of the minivan he crashed into. There was no altercation with the papparazzi.

      • ivan

        The driver claimed assault; that has to be proven. The benefit of the doubt goes to Justin not the pap who was trespassing on his father’s property.

        There is a difference between assault and battery; Lawyers for Justin said they remained in the car and Justin merely walked up to them and probably indicated they were trespassing.

      • MARZ8734 .

        Whatever happened it was between Justin and the driver of the minivan, not the paparazzi.

      • Sandy Bondwest

        They can not release information like down here until a media relations guy take a look at it. I have a case that happen to me when I was 19 years old. I decide to take my springbreak vacation up their in canada. So I was driving along I noticed a sign that was fench I turn right this person not a constable (thats what most police are name.) He told me that sign said no turning on red he had already call the police. So they laid the charges down the RCMP TSU Unit did the investigation could find any more witnesses so the they drop the ticket. Reasonable to not prosecute is like They must prove beyond reasonable doubt that he committed the assault.

      • ok_then_now

        That was a paparazzi driving the minivan on Jeremy Bieber’s private property.

      • MARZ8734 .

        Was it really I didn’t know that. Can you post a link.

      • Sandy Bondwest

        Go to TMZ they have it their.

      • ivan

        What I stated is what has been reported by the police and the lawyers for Justin; there was no physical attack and the nature of any altercation is not fully known. He was arrested because he was accused of assault which in Canada does not need to be physical; a mere accusation by someone who could be lying is sufficient. Battery is the word for an actual touching of a person to do harm. Why ignore the fact THEY WERE TRESPASSING. How would you like it if people trespassed on YOUR property.

      • ok_then_now

        The fact is that Justin was on a ATV with a passenger and these vehicles that these paparazzi were driving were chasing him, thus putting him and his passenger in harm. They also trespassed on Justin’s dad Jeremy’s private property while chasing Justin. If he hit that minivan it was probably because there were more than one vehicle chasing after him.. Again we don’t know all the details except these paparazzi were trespassing.

  • Lindsey

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Justin gets jail time now. This just might throw a wrench in his parole deal… All celebs have to deal with this crap, and most deal with it respectfully and professional (even the highest, most well known stars – see Pitt, Clooney, JLaw, ect) yet this keeps happening. Justin needs to work on his temper, for real. There really is no excuse anymore. He should know people are out to get him and with him now in trouble with the law, he needs to step up his game or suffer the consequences. Paps are a natural part of being famous, constantly being in the public eye, yet there aren’t a majority of celebs going in and out of court all the time for assault and reckless driving and whatever else. They deal and handle, Justin needs to as well. Some of you can keep coming up with excuses all day long if you want to, but this behavior of his has been on a downward spiral for well over a year now and it’s getting more clear as day with each week that passes. He needs help, he needs guidance, he needs some anger control.

        “Even a simple arrest for a new crime, felony, offense, misdemeanor,
        violation or motor vehicle matter is considered a technical parole violation,
        unless the arrest becomes a conviction by either plea or verdict after

        Doesn’t matter, if Justin was quote “arrested” the court could find it a violation.

      • ok_then_now

        The U.S.A has laws that are different than Canada.. In CANADA an arrest is done before an investigation, you are still considered innocent until proven guilty. In the U.S.A. an investigation is done before an arrest.. Now does the U.S.A. take into consideration the difference in laws between Canada and the U.S.A.??? Of course. In Canada it has to be proven that you have committed a breach of probation, not just that you were merely arrested. In the U.S.A. it’s different.

    • ok_then_now

      I agree that there are people out to get Justin Bieber and want to see him behind bars because of insane jealousy. These paparazzi will continue to put lives at risk including their own trying to get video or pictures of Justin and if he is with Selena, then they will go after him even harder knowing that they can make big money off those videos or pictures. However when you are literally hunted day and night anywhere in the world you go by paparazzi, it will over time get to you.. That’s what is happening with Justin.. He can’t take it anymore and losing his temper.

  • lambor500S

    It is always more to the story then what we read or hear about Most of the time it’s someone messing with him.
    I wish Justin the best out come in this situation.
    Much love!

  • Catrin Richards

    I feel bad for him but by now he has to be well aware that the paparazzi are going to hound him he knows it’s part of being famous so why can’t he just keep his cool I think he’s hot tempered and doesn’t keep himself in check its too bad nowadays he makes news for getting in trouble and not for his music which is what it should be all about

    • ok_then_now

      So should he expect the paparazzi to trespass on private property like they did with his dad’s acreage? I agree he has a quick temper.. But again we don’t know all the details here yet either.. Many times Justin has been accused of basically the same thing, and it was proven it never happened. Fact it this paparazzi have been hounding Justin and Selena on a daily basis since they arrived in Canada.. This time they crossed the line and trespassed on Jeremy Bieber’s private property and put Justin and his passenger in danger by chasing after them with their vehicles while Justin was driving a ATV.

  • rani bieber

    he is the perfect boy in all the world

  • Hannah Cortez

    OK this has gone too far. I’ve been making excuses for him everytime he got introuble and now I’m not. His behavior really needs to stop. Yea he grew up and is learning from his mistakes but that isn’t an excuse. If he did learn from his mistakes he would’ve stopped. Like when he got arrested the first time and now he got arrested again so obviously he didn’t learn. He needs to understand that he’s slowly losing more fans bcuzz of his stupid behavior. We can’t always make excuses for him. He thinks that he can get away with everything but he cant. He’s already on probabtion and there’s a good chance he will face jail time if he keeps it Up Seriously I don’t know what has gotten into him

  • Zebra skin Belieber

    The lawyer Roy Black says unfortunately this will continue while the paparazzi are highly paid for their photographs!
    BUT THERE IS A WAY TO STOP IT — CHANGE THE COPYRIGHT LAWS !!!
    Currently the photographer “owns” the image he takes — but if we changed the laws, and we all owned OUR OWN images, our faces belong to us, then when someone takes our photo they would need our permission to publish it.
    Smaller celebrities would, of course, readily give permission because they want to become famous, so it would not make a huge difference to the media but a big difference to the lives of the most famous ones like Justin!

  • mohd1251

    I can not believe this is happening doesnt he know what happens in prison and I am taking about torture rape ,etc its more than just spending time in a cell

    • mohd1251

      No offence im just saying what is true prison rape is really common in U.S its really dangerous and someone so good-looking and build like him he can be a victim easily

  • Mariana

    Omg can the media just leave him alone.. like imagine what he is going through. But we beliebers will always support and stand by him no matter what happens. Come we all teens we want to enjoy let him enjoy his life peacefully.. gosh! I hope you are alright we all pray for your happiness and joys;) always in our prayers

  • Lindsey

    Guys, he’s in serious trouble. I just read this on CNN; “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.

    This is probably, most definitely going to affect Justin’s parole in Cali.

    • ivan

      The lawyers for Justin said that was not so; he was just accused of assault; battery is when you actually hit someone. You get charged with assault when the person feels threatened. I believe this is bogus; did you not know there were two other paps that lied and Justin was cleared? One was the guy that claimed he was swiped by his car last year claiming he could not work-he was caught on video working. His suit will probably be thrown out. The other claimed Justin beat him up in L.A. over about two years ago; an investigation cleared Justin. PEOPLE DO LIE AND SUE HOPPING TO MAKE MONEY OUT OF IT.

      • Lindsey

        This is coming straight from the Ontario police being reported by CNN which is about as reputable as you get, they aren’t no tabloid rag like TMZ. The police said it was physical, not to mention it was updated yesterday, not a few days ago when the story broke. And of course his lawyer is going to say that, he wants Justin to get off whether he did it or not, that’s sorta what he’s paid to do… duh. Just like how lawyers for murderers say they didn’t do it… I’m not saying Justin’s guilty but I’m saying this isn’t good. If the Ontario police say it was physical and they have evidence of that through a witness, whether 100% accurate or not, the fact alone that he got into this mess violates his parole in Cali and he’ll go to jail.

      • ok_then_now

        You do realize that Canada’s laws are different right?? The police lay charges first when a complaint is made.. Then they do an investigation and the results are then forwarded to a prosecutor who then will make a decision to either drop the case or move forward to a trial. You can get arrested in Canada on some one’s word there does not have to be any evidence to start. The police then will do an investigation only after an arrest is made.. It is done in reverse in the U.S.A. You need to get those facts straightened out that the laws are different in both countries. The Ontario police are only stating what the complaint was, the investigation is still ongoing.. The other ‘witness” was the other paparazzi in the minivan… Selena is also a witness apparently. I’m sure she has her own version of what happened while she was a passenger on Justin’s ATV.

      • Lindsey

        You are missing the point completely. Justin is supposed to stay out of trouble with the law anywhere, everywhere. He was technically speaking arrested, thus that is a violation of his parole. Doesn’t matter it’s in a different country or not. Just like Chris Brown, it was never proven whether or not he hit a guy, he just fessed up to it to get a lighter sentence which happens all the time and because it violated his parole, he got sent to prison. Same thing could now happen to Justin, doesn’t matter whether or not he did it, he still had the police called and he was the one arrested. That is what matters, whether Cali will deem it a violation of his ‘good behavior’

      • Sandy Bondwest

        A then he could sued the LA county for discrimination that would result in a civil rights investigation by the department of Justice. That means the case would be reopen to see if the punishment was to hard. LA county doesn’t want that to happen.

      • Lindsey

        The L.A. courts made a point with Chris Brown because celebs tend to get off a lot because of their fame and nothing happened to them. They could do the exact same with Justin. Besides, if he violated his parole, there’s absolutely nothing his camp or lawyers can do. He violated it, he chose to get into a heated fight (whether physical or verbal) and it was his own actions, therefore he’s responsible.

      • ivan

        The police saw nothing; they report what the complainent said-the basis for the arrest aside from the CLAIMED bad driving. Does trespassing on property mean anything to you? Does constant pursuit and harassment by paps mean anything to you?

      • Sandy Bondwest

        Thr OPP has a history of abusing their power as well. That why the crown handles case like this But doesn’t anyone find it strange they went with a USA lawyer instead of a canadian lawyer. It tells me they were paparazzi how would they be albe to afford a celebrity lawyer.

      • ivan

        If you have not heard, Justin won his case in Canada against a guy claiming he assaulted him in a limo when he came out of a club with some guys including his father. One down, a few more to go.

        It does but atleast here in the states (not sure about Canada) even if someone is on your land, unless the land is marked as private property, you cannot physically harm or threaten anyone unless you directly feel like this person could harm you. Seeing as a pap was only taking pictures, that would not fly in court as a proper excuse.

        You are assuming the pap was telling the truth that Justin threatened him; he may merely have told him to leave; Justin was just cleared in another case involving alleged assault.

    Some of you fake fans and non fans are dumb; Justin was CHARGE with assault by the pap-you don’t have to touch someone to be so charged only threatened-at least the pap CLAIMED he was. These guys were on his father’s property; he had the right to tell them to get the hell out. Stop believing the crap you read on gossip sites without checking if it’s true or waiting for confirmation. If you now hate Justin because of rumors just leave; he does not need more haters. Finally, those paps were taking pics of him and Selena in Jeremy’s ranch-that is trespassing.

      The police saying to the media that he was merely charged with “assault” and them out-right saying there was a “physical altercation” are completely different. That means there was a fight, not just the bs Canadian “I intimidated you” charge. This isn’t the media making up stuff, this is coming directly from the police.

        Any physical altercation can be claimed merely on the basis Justin approached them and told them they were trespassing. Justin and his lawyers deny any altercation took place and will fight it in court. The officer saw nothing of an altercation; he received the complaint from the driver who was a pap taking pics at that time and trespassing on the property. Canadian law as L.A. law can be stupid at times.

    Let’s say I was following a normal person stalking him. He called the police and I have a camera in my hand could I said that a normal person is news h#ll no. The police would arrest me on the spot but thats the same excused that the paparazzi used. I have a ideal if the LAPD and the LASD Want to stop crime. Why don’t they Just say no more stalking no matter who it is. The paparazzi gets away with to much crap as well. paul reaf he was the paparazzi chasing Justin bieber at a 100mph but guess who got a ticket it was Justin bieber that paparazzi didn’t even get that.
