Bieber Could Get New Trial Date In Fla.
MIAMI (AP) — A new trial date could be set for Justin Bieber in the Florida case charging him with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver’s license.
A hearing was scheduled Tuesday for the 20-year-old pop singer, who has pleaded not guilty. A previous trial date was postponed while attorneys for news organizations and Bieber wrestled with releasing police videos of him giving a drug test urine sample.
Those videos were made public last week with some segments blacked out.
Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police called an illegal drag race between high-end sports cars. Breath tests showed Bieber’s blood alcohol content was below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers, but other tests detected marijuana and Xanax.
