Justin Bieber DUI Trial Date Set for March 3
A Miami-Dade County judge has set March 3 as the trial date for Justin Bieber, who was arrested last month on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license.
Bieber, who has already pleaded not guilty to the three misdemeanors, will be officially arraigned on Feb. 14.
The 19-year-old star and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after police stopped them for speeding in a pair of rented sports cars. According to a police report, Bieber cursed out the officer and a toxicology test later found he had marijuana and Xanax in his system.
The arrest appears to have raised Bieber's profile with law enforcement officials. Over the weekend, Bieber's private plane was detained in New Jersey and searched for marijuana (nothing was found). According to TMZ, U.S. Customs have flagged the singer to be searched every time he enters or leaves the States. The site says he'll receive a "thorough search and then exhaustive questioning."
Last week the singer turned himself in to Toronto officials to be charged with assault stemming from an incident in the city last month.
