“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.”
Bieber tweeted about an incident with paparazzi last week. “There should be laws against what I just experienced. We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana,” Bieber tweeted. He also tweeted: “I don’t have a problem with Paparazzi but when they act recklessly they put us all in danger.”
