Police: Bieber claimed foot fracture in Florida

Justin Bieber Gives Excuse for Wobbly DUI Footage
BY CURT ANDERSON
AP LEGAL AFFAIRS WRITER

MIAMI (AP) -- Justin Bieber claimed after a shaky sobriety test in Florida that he was suffering from a hairline fracture in his right foot and made condescending comments to officers, according to a Miami Beach police document released Tuesday.

The police summary of Bieber's performance on various sobriety tests following his Jan. 23 arrest shows that the pop singer told officers he had injured his foot skateboarding three months earlier. The officer had noted that Bieber appeared to sway and have leg tremors during one of the tests, and also winced as if in pain.

"He appeared to have great difficulty," the report noted, adding that the injury never was mentioned or noticed after that test.

Bieber, who has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence and other charges, also told officers he was not drag racing in a rented Lamborghini along with R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff, who was driving a Ferrari when both were stopped. Bieber, who turned 20 March 1, questioned why he was arrested in the first place.

The report describes Bieber as initially "agitated and condescending" and using frequent profanity when brought to the police station.

"He then got upset and said, `I'm 19 years old. I'm just out having a good time,'" the report quoted him as saying. "What were you doing when you were 19?"

The officer replied that he was not driving around in a Lamborghini at that age.

"Yeah, well, I bet you didn't have millions of dollars in your bank account either," Bieber was quoted in reply.

The singer told officers that black Cadillac Escalade SUVs following the two sports cars were carrying security personnel and that the group was trying to avoid celebrity photographers who were tailing them.

The officer mentioned to another officer that it appeared Bieber and Sharieff were having difficulty driving the high-end cars.

Bieber was quoted as saying, "What? I've been driving Lamborghinis since I was 15."

Other topics of discussion, the report noted, included Bieber's numerous tattoos and fishing for pike in his native Canada with his grandfather. He also mentioned taking an anti-anxiety medication whenever he feels "closed in," according to the report.

Police drug tests found the presence of the active ingredient in marijuana and Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug. Traces of alcohol were also detected with a breath test, but the level was below the 0.02 threshold considered intoxicated for drivers under age 21.

Bieber faces a May 5 trial date.

Sounds like overpriced and overpaid lawyers grasping. The problem is, is that the little beestard probably injured his foot pressing too hard on the gas pedal, if he had an injury at all.

Time for the courts to get serious. Sick and tired of these celebrities thinking they can get away with anything they want. Money seems to talk in this justice system and that needs to change, If he's convicted he needs to be deported. An attitude adjustment is just what he needs and it will send a message to all the other jerks feeling entitled. I'm sick and tired of the United States being weakened because they feel it is not politically correct.

"I'm sick and tired of the United States being weakened because they feel it is not politically correct". Allow me to ask you a question "neonmedic1".
What does the U.S. have to do with this case? Many say deport him, he hasn't committed any federal crimes from what I've read. If he had the U.S. Marshals would have already detained him. Let the courts service his problems, the media only wants a story like TMZ, HuffingtonPost or better yet the greater one, The National -Enquirer.
If he goes to jail you all going be his pen pals, or if not what are all you going bark about next - Obama Family.
He'll grow up one year and realize those claim to be his friend or only his friend when he is footing their needs. Would they all hang with him if he was broke - Highly doubtful..

This brat has been tolerated too long. I would ban him from the U.S. Eventually his unacceptable behavior is going to hurt someone.

This kid needs to find himself some new friends and quick. Ever since he started being used by these guys he has taken a turn for the worse. My fear is that they will find him dead of an overdose someday.
