Justin Bieber is facing jail time after he got into a fight with a photographer in Canada this week. Justin was riding ATVs with on-again girlfriend Selena Gomez when he crashed into the back of a photographers car. Justin got into a physical altercation with the individual and the police were called.
Justin is currently on a two-year probation after throwing eggs at his neighbors home, and it looks like this fight could have violated the probation – leading the judge to put Justin in jail.
Justin’s lawyer released the following statement:
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. Mr. Bieber and Ms. Gomez have fully cooperated in the police investigation. We are hopeful that this matter will be quickly resolved.
A second lawyer for Justin stated:
Justin, like many celebrities are continually harassed by police. Their privacy is shredded and these incidents can become dangerous. While the public is not particularly sympathetic, they must realize how difficult these cameramen make their lives. So I am not surprised there is a conflict. It happens quite often, and as long as the paparazzi are highly paid for their photographs, they will continue.
