Justin Bieber: "I'm Guilty"Posted on:
Justin Bieber finally seems to be taking responsibility for his actions, or at least some of them.
The bad boy pop star pled guilty to simple assault and careless driving in a case in Canada dating back to September 2014. The incident involved then-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, and a paparazzo. Bieber allegedly crashed his ATV into the minivan of a paparazzo who was taking photos of the couple. Following the crash, Bieber took things even further by physically assaulting the photographer.
At the time, Bieber's lawyer released 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. Mr. Bieber and Ms. Gomez have fully cooperated in the police investigation. We are hopeful that this matter will be quickly resolved.”
The guilty plea will come at a price for the Biebs, but a very small one at that. He's been ordered to pay a whopping $750 fine and given a warning by the judge to think before he acts in the future.
