    Justin Bieber has had another run-in with the law.

    The 20-year-old pop star was arrested this past Friday near his hometown in Ontario, Canada, after an afternoon of ATV riding ended in a supposed brawl.

    According to a release from the Ontario Provincial Police, "On Friday August 29, 2014 shortly before 3 p.m. Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers responded to a collision between a minivan and an All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) on Line 40 east of Road 106. Investigation revealed that after colliding, the driver of the ATV and an occupant of the minivan engaged in a physical altercation. Justin Bieber (20) of Calabasas, California U.S.A., has been charged with ‘dangerous driving', and ‘assault,' contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada.

    "He was released on a Promise to Appear and is scheduled to attend at the Ontario Court of Justice in Stratford on September 29, 2014, to answer to these charges."

    Bieber spent several days in Ontario last week with friends and seemingly on-again girlfriend Selena Gomez. On Friday, the day of Bieber's arrest, the "Boyfriend" singer was photographed riding an ATV with Gomez around the town of Stratford, where his dad Jeremy Bieber lives. The couple was all smiles during their romantic ride, which ultimately ended with the pre-arrest collision.

    Regarding Bieber's latest legal hiccup, his attorney Brian H. Greenspan tells E! News in a 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. Me. Bieber and Ms. Gomez have fully cooperated in the police investigation. We are hopeful that this matter will be quickly resolved."

    Several days before the ATV arrest, Bieber and Gomez were spotted holding hands after landing at a local Ontario airport.
