Bieber charged

Canadian pop star Justin Bieber faces new charges after he was arrested for dangerous driving and assault following a collision between a minivan and an ATV that led to a physical altercation involving a photographer, his lawyer said Tuesday. Ontario Provincial Police would only say the driver of the ATV and an occupant of the minivan ‘‘engaged in a physical altercation,’’ Friday afternoon near Bieber’s hometown of Stratford. ‘‘Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of the paparazzi,’’ Brian Greenspan, Bieber’s Toronto lawyer, said Tuesday. ‘‘This has regrettably resulted in charges of dangerous driving and assault.” (AP)

Chris Brown pleaded guilty on Tuesday to punching a man in the face outside a Washington hotel, an assault that occurred while the singer was on probation for attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to time served. He spent two days in a District of Columbia jail in the case, one that further tarnished the image of the Grammy-winning singer. Brown, 25, admitted that he hit a man who tried to get in a picture the singer was taking with two women outside the W hotel a few blocks from the White House last October. (AP)
