Justin Bieber's Lawyers Release Statements Following His Arrest

Justin Bieber‘s lawyers have issued statements following his arrest over the weekend with charges of assault and dangerous driving after his ATV crashed with a mini van.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez‘s peaceful retreat in Stratford this weekend was unfortunately disrupted by the unwelcome presence of paparazzi,” Brian H. Greenspan, Justin‘s lawyer, said to People of the accident involving Selena and Justin. “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.”

Justin‘s other lawyer, Roy Black, also criticized, saying, “Justin, like many celebrities are continually harassed by police. Their privacy is shredded and these incidents can become dangerous. While the public is not particular sympathetic, they must realize how difficult these cameramen make their lives. So I am not surprised there is a conflict,” he said. “It happens quite often, and as long as the paparazzi are highly paid for their photographs, they will continue.”

    He’s a punk. So this arrest was the paparazzi’s fault, and whose fault were the other arrests and his other trouble with the law? He’s in trouble with the law in two different countries…why is he not in jail yet?

    Are they serious? Blaming the paparazzi? Do they think the rest of the world is stupid? Brangelina are one of the most sought after couples of this celebrity-world (regardless of what anyone think about them) and they managed to marry in absolute privacy with nobody knowing **** – so it can be done! Blaming the paparazzi… my ass.

    Yes Beiber is a little prick who thinks he can get away with anything but that’s skirting the real issue here. Is he wearing lipstick?

    Dacvid Says:

    lets blame his bad behaviour on the police, or the press, or his neighbours, anyone but himself. Police harassing him, LA, Miami, Stratford? It’s a conspiracy. Seriously lets just let him do whatever he wants. better yet throw his pampered privileged a$$ in jail and let him sweat it out. Seriously, if he wasn’t rich and could pay off the authorities, thats where he would be.

    Maybe he wouldn’t keep getting arrested if he would stop doing stupid **** in public. Take some responsibility for your actions and grow up already, manchild.

    He has been surrounded by people since he was young telling him he is always right and always telling him yes yes yes, so of course he acts like this. Even now his lawyers are still trying to act like he is not responsible for his own actions.

    This really comes down to people have the right not to be harassed when out in public … paparazzi cross that line every day … California should really look at changing some laws to avoid the dangerous situations the paps and harassed stars are causing.

    Imagine how terrible his life must be!!!!
    Those mean old police always harass him when he breaks the law!!
    Poor Justin! He should be allowed to break all the laws he wants, because he is one special snowflake!!
    Such a punk.
    He needs to be thrown in jail so he can find out what it really means to be a bad@ss.

    Lol Says:

    And if that’s his mugshot, I bet the police were itching to slap that smug expression off that irritating face.
    They were all probably thinking ‘come on you little twit, give me a reason….just one, little, reason’.

    As long as lawyers are highly paid, we will have frivolous lawsuits that cost taxpayers money. Our legal system should have losers pay to eliminate these ridiculous lawsuits. These celebs make millions off the public, the only price they pay is having their photo taken? Deal with it. Stay in your mansion if you can’t handle it. Poor babies.

    @bob: The paparazzi are out of control. They have been for a long time. Freedom of press doesn’t mean you can harass people, which is exactly what they do. They chase Bieber all the time on the road and you can’t do that to someone as young as he is. He doesn’t have enough driving experience or life experience to handle it. People are saying, “Now he’s involving his girlfriend in his crimes.” But highly doubt that he took his girl out on an ATV so he could get her involved in a crime. I don’t know the details on the collision with the van, but he wasn’t under the influence and I don’t believe that he would purposely ram into it. My guess guess is he was probably startled. Gloria Allred says there is footage that shows “some” of the incident. That’s because it’s probably the paparazzi’s selective footage.

    he is a punk Says:

    @red1946: peeing in restaurant mop buckets, numerous fights with civilians at clubs, defacing public property in three countries, spitting from a balcony with fans below, trying to get underage friends into nightclubs reeking of pot, 14 and 15 year olds, continually going to clubs underage resulting in fines, being banned by clubs. Attacking DJ in Chicago. Attacking limo driver in torondo. Harassing neighborhood at two locations, starting a fight while drunk with Leo DiCaprio and Orlando Bloom, going to an illegal brothel in Brazil, defacing public property in three countries, outstanding warrants for his arrest in those countries, being banned at nightclubs in other countries, trying to steal and remove phone cards, attacking couple at Dave and Busters, driving motorcycle on sidewalk to avoid traffic. The list goes on and no paps there at the time.

    bull Says:

    Justin let the paparazzi know exactly where he was. He says he wants privacy but then post pictures of him and Selena. He tells the press where he will be. Plenty of bigger stars manage to stay out of the press, but if this twerp farts he alerts the media. He caused an accident prior to going to Canada and tried to compare himself to Princess Diana. He was trying to get his recent illegal behavior, riding his motorcycle on the sidewalk and risking people’s lives, out of the news by posting Selena pictures. The he got into an altercation at Dave & Busters, so he post he’s taking Selena to Canada. When the Dave & Busters story won’t go away, he post pics of Selena and his siblings, etc…, He is RESPONSIBLE for breaking the law, NOBODY else. He broke probation, send him to jail already!! He’s going tokill ssomeone!! Stop him NOW!!!!!
