Justin Bieber DUI arrest: Trial date set as its confirmed singer will face three charges in court

The 20-year-old star has pleaded not guilty to all charges stemming back from his arrest in January

It seems that Justin Bieber’s run of luck dodging legal troubles is drawing to a close.

The singer will face trial for charges stemming back to his DUI arrest on 23 January, it has been confirmed.

Bieber, 20, will appear before a Florida court on 5 May after he was caught by police drag racing through the streets of Miami with his father Jeremy Bieber and a number of friends.

As well as defending a charge for driving under the influence, the star also faces charges of resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver's license.

Bieber has pleaded not guilty to all charges. No plea deal has been made on the singer’s behalf.

His original trial date was set for the start of March, but was postponed after his attorneys fought to contain the release of prison CCTV footage, that showed him giving a urine sample, among other things.

 

Bieber's initial breath tests showed that the alcohol levels in his blood were below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers. However, further toxicology reports detected the presence of the drug marijuana and Xanax in his blood at the time of his arrest.

The news follows the star’s particularly belligerent display as he was filmed giving a six-hour oral witness testimony to serve as evidence in a separate civil law suit, filed against him by a Miami photographer who claims he was assaulted by one of Bieber’s bodyguards.

Swinging repugnantly in his chair, he fields a variety of questions from Binion’s lawyer by answering back with more questions, rolling his eyes and denying people like Usher have been instrumental to his career.

“I was detrimental to my own career,” he counters, probably searching for the word ‘instrumental’ but actually coming out with a far more accurate statement.

At his most contentious, he questions the lawyer’s use of the term “film” in reference to CCTV footage of his bodyguard, and boils when quizzed about his relationship with Selena Gomez, shaking his finger and repeatedly warning the lawyer: “Don’t ask me that again!”

He also compares the interrogation to a 60 Second celebrity interview with Katie Couric.
