Ontario Provincal Police were called to the scene of a crash between a minivan and quad bike near Stratford, Ontario.

In a statement the police said: "An investigation revealed that after colliding, the driver of the (quad bike) and an occupant of the minivan engaged in a physical altercation."

There were no injuries as a result of the collision.

It is not known whether there were any injuries from the altercation afterwards.

Bieber was released on a "promise to appear" and is due to attend at the Ontario Court of Justice in September to answer the charges.

Bieber's lawyer, Brian Greenspan, said in a statement: "Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez' 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."

The incident is the latest in a string of legal woes for Bieber who is already facing an assault charge in Toronto following an alleged altercation with a limo driver last December.

The singer is expected to appear in court on Monday to answer the charge.

He is also currently on two years' probation after throwing eggs at his neighbour's house in LA.

No-one else would get away with as much as he has. Lock him up and maybe he'll stop getting on the way he does
