Justin Bieber Pleads Guilty to Assault & Careless Drivin

Justin Bieber pleaded guilty to charges of assault and careless driving in Stratford, Ontario on Thursday.

The incident took place on August 29 last year, when the 21-year-old singer crashed an ATV into a photographer’s van.

Taking place close to his father’s Canadian home, Justin was in the company of Selena Gomez, 22, at the time.

Via CBC:

Lawyer Seith Weinstein confirmed that a sentence of an absolute discharge on the assault charge and a $750 fine for the careless driving charge has been agreed on in the case.

Bieber had been arrested and charged in the case in August last year after a collision between a minivan and an ATV in a rural area northeast of Stratford.

A lawyer for the singer had said Bieber was on a “peaceful retreat” at the time with Selena Gomez — his on-again, off-again girlfriend — when it was disrupted by paparazzi.

Ontario Provincial Police had said the driver of the ATV and an occupant of the minivan “engaged in a physical altercation.”
