"Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez' peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of the paparazzi. This has regrettably resulted in charges of dangerous driving and assault," Bieber's lawyer, Brian H. Greenspan, told ABC News in a statement. "Mr. Bieber and Ms. Gomez have fully cooperated in the police investigation. We are hopeful that this matter will be quickly resolved."

The authorities added that Bieber was released shortly thereafter and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Stratford on Sept. 29.

That same day, the singer was photographed riding on an ATV with his off-again, on-again girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
