The incident took place in Ontario, Canada while Bieber was riding with on/off GF Selena Gomez. Police told TMZ that Bieber and the other driver got into an altercation after the accident.
Bieber was subsequently arrested and charged with dangerous driving and assault.
His rep told “Extra” 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 his matter will be quickly resolved.”
TMZ reports Justin was released and will have to appear in court later this month.
Bieber is currently on a two-year probation after pleading no contest to egging a house earlier this year. No word yet if this arrest could trigger a violation.
Singer Justin Bieber has found himself in still more legal trouble after crashing his ATV into a minivan last Friday.
