In the wake of Justin Bieber getting arrested for dangerous driving and assault in Canada last Friday, two lawyers for this singer have released statements on behalf of their client.
As previously detailed, Bieber was driving an ATV (with Selena Gomez as his passenger) when he collided with a minivan and then got into a physical altercation with the driver, who was a member of the paparazzi.
Police took Justin in to custody and he's due in an Ontario court later this month.
Attorney Brian H. Greenspan doesn't specifically dispute these details, but he does point the finger of blame squarely away from Bieber.
"Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez‘s peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of paparazzi,” said Greenspan in a statement, adding:
"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."
