We're told probation officers have 30 days to notify the court of any alleged violation. The court will then decide if Justin's probation gets revoked, and if he gets jail time.

Justin Bieber got arrested in Canada after crashing his ATV into a minivan driven by paparazzi ... TMZ has learned -- and he now faces charges of dangerous driving and assault.

Justin was photographed riding the ATV with Selena Gomez Friday in Ontario near his father's home.
Police say Justin was released and will have to appear in court later this month.
He could have a bigger problem on his hands though -- Justin is on probation for 2 years after the egging case in L.A. So, it's possible this arrest could trigger a violation.

9/2/2014 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown just accepted a plea deal in his Washington D.C. assault case ... pleading guilty, and telling the judge he just wants this case to go away so he can go on tour.
Brown had been charged with misdemeanor assault for punching a man in the face outside his tour bus last October. The judge sentenced him to time already served.
Brown apologized in court ... saying the case had derailed his career for the past year.
His bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy was also convicted of misdemeanor assault in April in connection with the incident ... but has not yet been sentenced.
Funny, Brown only served 2 days in a D.C. jail -- but ended up doing 108 days in L.A. County lockup because the D.C. case violated his probation in the Rihanna case.
Brown's GF Karrueche Tran was also in the courtroom Tuesday lending moral support.

Suge Knight's torso looks like a piece of Swiss cheese -- riddled with 5 bullet holes, plus another in his arm -- and these photos of the damage make you wonder how in the world he survived.
In the pics, obtained by TMZ, some of Suge's wounds are still packed with gauze ... after the shooting nine days ago at a pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown.
You can also see the massive scar down the middle of his gut-- sources tell us doctors had to slice his torso open to make sure the bullets did not hit any major organs. Amazingly, they did not.
One crazy detail -- the bullet hole in Suge's arm is inches away from his ink honoring Tupac. One cool detail -- docs stapled him up so well, his tatt of a vintage whip almost looks untouched.
