Another delay in Justin Bieber's Fla. DUI case



MIAMI (AP) - Justin Bieber's lawyers and Florida prosecutors said Wednesday they need more time to work out a possible plea deal on charges that the pop star drove under the influence and resisted arrest.

Assistant State Attorney David Gilbert and Bieber attorney Mark Shapiro asked for an additional three weeks. Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield reset the matter for Aug. 5.

Gilbert said at a brief hearing the two sides would inform Altfield on that date how the plea negotiations are progressing "and set a trial date, if necessary." He gave no other details, and Shapiro also would not get into specifics. Bieber did not attend the hearing.

"It's pretty much status quo," Shapiro said.

Bieber was arrested early Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal street race between Bieber's rented Lamborghini and a Ferrari driven by a friend, R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff. Neither was charged with drag racing.

Alcohol breath tests found Bieber's level below Florida's 0.02 limit for underage drivers but urine tests showed the presence of marijuana and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax in his system. Bieber was also charged with resisting arrest and driving on an expired license. Sharieff is also charged with DUI.

Earlier this month, Bieber resolved another criminal case by pleading no contest to a misdemeanor vandalism charge for throwing eggs at a neighbor's house in Los Angeles. In that case, Bieber agreed to pay more than $80,000 in damages and meet a number of other conditions.

Bieber is also charged in Toronto with assaulting a limo driver in late December. His lawyers have said he is not guilty in that case.

Back in Miami, Bieber is being sued by a photographer who says he was roughed up while snapping pictures of the singer outside a recording studio.

The Canadian-born Bieber shot to stardom at age 15, after initially gaining notice through YouTube videos. He was nominated for two Grammy Awards for his 2010 full-length album debut "My World 2.0," but his popularity has begun to wane.

3 criminal cases in addition to one civil lawsuit for assault in the last 18 months?

Why do the teenybopper and young women flock to this dirty, sleezy, wimpy wannabe badboy?

It is clear that he has a problem with illegal (marijuana) and illegal drugs found in his system. Too bad it was not Justin Bieber instead of Paul Walker that died in the high speed crash. Bieber is a disgrace to the human race.

So, why is this little low-life handled differently than others? He was drag racing and impaired.

He needs to grow up and stay out of trouble, but he's a smart A - - punk with no respect for others.

This low life thinks his fecal matter don't stink and has joined the likes of Lohan. Both are useless and uninteresting. The article says that his popularity has begun to wane. That's crap ITS OVER! He has no special legal immunity. Lock his dumb ass up so we can stop hearing about him!

He should be charged for abusing those ugly sunglasses and that ghetto pimp jewelry.

He needs to do time just like anyone else . Maybe they will let him work in the kitchen - bet he'd do great at salad tossing.
