Bieber charged with dangerous driving and assault

POP singer Justin Bieber has been charged with dangerous driving and assault after his All-Terrain Vehicle - similar to a quad bike - smashed into the side of a minivan.

It is the latest in what is becoming an endless parade of mishaps for the singer much of the world loves to hate.

International media reports suggest Bieber was visiting family in Ontario, Canada with occasional girlfriend Selena Gomez.

The pair were taking turns driving when the ATV hit the van while Bieber was allegedly at the helm.

It would be nice if this was a simple accident but according to Ontario Police: "after colliding, the driver of the ATV and an occupant of the minivan engaged in a physical altercation".

So not only is Bieber accused of hitting the van with his ATV, he's also accused of then throwing punches at someone inside.

He was arrested at the scene, released, and will now front court on September 9 to answer to these criminal charges.

Bieber has a date with another court too - he is due at a hearing in Toronto over allegations he attacked a limousine driver last year.
