Embattled pop star Justin Bieber has been offered a plea deal to avoid jail for driving under the influence (DUI), according to a U.S. report. The Baby hitmaker was arrested in Miami, Florida in January (14) on suspicion of driving under the influence, driving on a suspended licence and resisting arrest without violence and he subsequently pleaded not guilty to the charges. Editors at TMZ.com report Bieber has now been offered a deal that will allow him to avoid a jail sentence, but only if he agrees to submit to regular drug tests. Law enforcement sources tell the website the Florida State Attorney has offered Bieber the chance to plead no contest to reckless driving, and in return the star must complete 40 hours of community service and attend an alcohol education class. As part of the deal, Bieber will also reportedly have to submit to random drug testing. It is not known if the star plans to accept the reported deal.
