Singer Justin Bieber has been found guilty of assault and careless driving in regards to his 2014 arrest in Ontario, Canada, according to a tweet from a National Post reporter

While in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario in September 2014, the singer was taken into custody by the Ontario Provincial Police for reckless driving and a collision between a minivan and an ATV which resulted in a “physical altercation.”

During the trip to Ontario, Bieber’s then-girlfriend Selena Gomez was photographed riding in an ATV with him. Bieber’s lawyer claims the two were being disrupted by the paparazzi and blamed that on the accident.

“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 lawyers, told the Associated Press at the time. “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.”

Prior to the altercation, Bieber took to Twitter to chastise the paparazzi for another similar incident. “There should be laws against what I just experienced. We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana. … I don’t have a problem with Paparazzi but when they act recklessly they put us all in danger.”





This isn’t the first time that Bieber has been in trouble for reckless driving. Back in 2013 he was accused by his neighbors of speeding through his gated community. However, the singer’s security detail told police that Bieber was not the one behind the wheel.
