Justin Bieber has dodged another massive legal headache after working out a plea deal with prosecutors in his Florida DUI case, according to reports. The Baby singer was arrested after Miami Beach police officers allegedly caught him drag racing with a pal in January (14).
Bieber was taken into custody and charged with resisting arrest and a DUI, but it appears he won’t be facing trial anymore. A source tells Us Weekly magazine that the charges against him will be dropped if he completes an anger management course.
It has been a lucky week for the 20 year old, who learned on Thursday (12Jun14) that a felony cellphone stealing charge against him had been passed to Los Angeles’ City Attorney officials following an investigation into the May (14) incident. Bieber was accused of taking a cellphone from the handbag of a fan’s mother after he caught her taking pictures of him at an arcade in Sherman Oaks, California.
The woman filed a police report but no witness actually spotted Bieber grabbing her phone. City Attorney officials will now determine if there’s enough evidence to file a misdemeanour charge against the star.
