Pop Star Justin Bieber Gets Another Slap On The Wrist

Jun 5, 2015

Pop star Justin Bieber was convicted by a Canadian court yesterday of careless driving and assault. 

His punishment was a meager fine of $750 Canadian dollars (roughly $600 USD) for an incident that occurred in August when the singer was arrested because he drove his ATV into a minivan.

A video link brought the court proceedings to Bieber and Bieber to the court.

This is just the most recent legal problem the young entertainer has faced -- last summer he pled guilty to reckless driving and resisting arrest without violence in a Miami DUI incident.

According to the Florida plea agreement, the celebrity was to merely make a donation to a charitable group and take anger management classes.

That same year he made a plea deal to a misdemeanor vandalism charge in the malicious egging of his neighbor’s house.

The punishment for that crime? Two-years probation with a demand that he pay $80,900 in restitution for damages and stay at least 100 yards away from the victim and the victim’s family.

The Bieb’s also being pursued by Argentina prosecutors for ordering the 2013 brutal beating of a Buenos Aires paparazzi by two bodyguards who are both additionally named in separate Argentine arrest warrants.

But perhaps pop star Justin Bieber will mend his ways now, as he’s promised. Because if the young man doesn’t, then it’s only a matter of time before he inflicts so much damage he’ll no longer enjoy just a slap on the wrist.
