Justin Bieber dangerous driving, assault case in Ontario court today
Charges stem from incident last month near star's hometown of Stratford
Justin Bieber's dangerous driving and assault case is due before a Stratford, Ont. court Monday, but the Canadian pop star isn't expected to appear.
The charges stem from a collision last month between an ATV and a minivan on a country road near the home of Bieber's father.
Monday's hearing is the latest in a long string of legal troubles for the young celebrity:
- Earlier this month, the Crown dropped an assault charge against Bieber that was filed in connection with an alleged attack on a Toronto limousine driver.
- In July, Bieber pleaded no contest to misdemeanour vandalismand had to pay $80,900 in restitution to a neighbour whose house was egged in Calabasas, Calif. He was sentenced to probation of two years.
- Last month, a case was resolved in Florida, where Bieber had initially been accused of street racing. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges and was required to take an anger management course, make a $50,000 charitable contribution and pay court fees.
- Reports emerged this summer alleging Bieber had been involved in an altercation with actor Orlando Bloom at a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain.
