Bieber, whose songs include the hits "Boyfriend" and "Beauty and a Beat," has been a favorite paparazzi target and has attracted more attention lately for his legal run-ins than his chart-toppers.

The singer's latest arrest could add to his legal woes in Los Angeles, where Bieber is on probation after pleading no contest in July to misdemeanor vandalism for pelting a neighbor's home with eggs.

Arrests, even if abroad, generally trigger an inquiry into a possible probation violation, said Reaver Bingham, the deputy chief of field services at the Los Angeles County Probation Department.

Bingham declined to say whether the department was investigating Bieber's latest arrest, citing privacy laws.

This year, R&B singer Chris Brown spent 80 days in a Los Angeles jail after admitting to a probation violation following a 2013 arrest in Washington for punching a fan. Brown pleaded guilty on Tuesday to misdemeanor assault in that case.

Bieber's arrest in Canada came weeks after he pleaded guilty to careless driving and resisting an officer without violence in Florida, part of a deal to resolve allegations he was caught drag racing in a Lamborghini under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

In January, he was charged with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto. The case is ongoing.
