Justin Bieber lands more bad driving and bad punching charges in Canada

By | Published on Wednesday 3 September 2014


Hey, remember when Justin Bieber was just a clumsy kid who used to walk into doors a lot? He was a lot more fun than this guy who keeps driving around too fast and punching people.

The charges of driving too quickly and punching people usually come separately, but this week the Biebs is consolidating his driving and punching activities. The singer was charged with assault and dangerous driving in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario, after he allegedly crashed a quad bike into a minivan and then got into a fight with the driver of said minivan.

The Ontario Provincial Police said in a statement yesterday that an “investigation revealed that after colliding, the driver of the [quad bike] and an occupant of the minivan engaged in a physical altercation”. Bieber was released on bail after he “promise[d] to appear” in court on 29 Sep.

In a statement, the singer’s lawyer Brian Greenspan said: “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”.

Oh yeah, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back together. And that’s not the only partnership Bieber is involved in at the moment. He has recorded an album with Cody Simpson, who is also managed by Scooter Braun.

The album will be released in November. Simpson told the Australian Daily Telegraph: “It is a smack bang duets [album]. Justin has been a good mate of mine for a while. It’s just us writing. He told me he felt like I’d figured myself out and have grown into what he knows I will be so he was like, ‘I see you as that guitarist, singer songwriter you’ve always wanted to be’. I play all the guitars on the album”.

Oh yeah? Well what’s Justin Bieber doing in this picture then? Don’t deny him his full rockstar credentials, Cody. He might crash into you and punch you if you do. Allegedly.
