Lawyers seek to protect Bieber's 'personal parts' from media exposure

(Reuters) - Lawyers for pop star Justin Bieber are asking a judge to prevent semi-clad images of the teenage singer in Miami Beach police custody following his arrest last month, from being released to the media, according to a motion filed late on Friday.

"While in custody at the Miami Beach police station the defendant was captured on videotape in various states of undress which show intimate personal parts of the defendant's body," the motion states, noting that the Florida constitution and state law prevent such images from being publicly disclosed.

Bieber, 19, was charged with driving under influence, resisting arrest and using an expired license after police say they caught him allegedly drag racing on January 23. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

He also had marijuana and prescription medication for anxiety in his system at the time of his arrest, according to the state attorney's office.

One video of Bieber in police custody being patted down by and Miami Beach officer was already released to the media this week, the motion states, in violation of the law and prior to Bieber's lawyers being notified of its existence.

On Friday, Bieber's Miami lawyers Black, Srebnick, Kornspan & Stumpf, said they learned from the state attorney's office that various news media outlets had filed public records requests for all videotape footage from Bieber's time in detention.

The Miami Beach police and the state attorney's office were not immediately available to comment.

A Florida court has set a March 3 trial date for Bieber, who is Canadian, on the charges stemming from the January 23 arrest.

Bieber, whose private life has taken a tumultuous turn in the past year, was also charged last week with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto in December.

Maybe he'll go away after his divorce settlement from Usher.

A-hole, and a dirty one, is a true characterization of this piece of scum. And, I agree, he doesn't represent the vast majority of our Canadian neighbors, who have far more class than this A-hole does. I love Canada. I just don't love this particular import to the lower 49 (I think Alaska is upper).

Personally, I don't care what he has below the navel, and it shouldn't make a difference to anyone, but some love starved women fan. However, are they looking to horse trade his arrest for a DUI, for the illegal transference of the video? Yes, I would bet the farm on that one! If Berber is convicted of his crime in Florida, then his green card could be revoked by the US government. It is tit for tat with Canada, his home country. In Canada it is a high crime for a DUI, and subsequently they won't let American's come across the border, or settle in Canada, if you have a DUI conviction in the US. Canada even goes so far as to arrest you, and charge you with a crime of crossing the border illegally into Canada. The Federal Government could revoke his Green Card, and deport him to Canada. If this happens, then Justin Bieber is really looking at years of staying in Canada. He could at sometime in the future re-apply for another Green Card for working in the US, but he would have to change is attitude about drugs and alcohol to be re-admitted. So, the case of the DUI, and the charge of illegally posting of his private parts are two issues, but his attorney team wants them in the same discussion, to keep him working in the US. In Canada that would a met with a laugh about the unfortunate circumstances that released the video of the jailhouse search to the press.

Canada doesn't want him back. I have Canadian friends who are delighted they got rid of him. Unfortunately, we have to go through all kinds of **** to get him out of our space.

It is time that someone takes hold of this child, yes, he is a child, and straighten him out. That includes his father and now his mother.. Maybe 1/2 year of not being able to tour might help. Having all the tatoos do not help. He needs to go into a place where he is not allowed to run his own life and learn just how to act. Parents..please stop buying his CD's.....

Sean "Diddy" Combs, Bieber, Rick Ross? The real scum of the earth. Bieber sure is cavorting with some class people. Something else real class: Hot tattoos. What a total piece of lost humanity this retard is, along with a growing list of other lost scum.

He has turned into nothing but an attention seeking punk who is rolling in money for now. He is going to be broke and forgotten before you know it and we will see who his friends are then. Send him back to Canada and let them deal with him.

The headline reads, "Lawyers seek to protect Bieber's 'personal parts' from media exposure" About the only personal parts I want to see from this little twerp is his a$$ taking a one way no return trip across the Canadian boarder and then find his name on the no fly list..................
