Justin Bieber Reportedly Cops A Deal In DUI Case

Justin Bieber may have copped a plea deal in his ongoing DUI case, stemming from his arrest in Miami where he was busted for driving under the influence after drag racing back in January. 

A source confirms to E! News that the Biebs' attorneys have agreed to anger management courses for the pop star and he has also been ordered to pay a fine.

An attorney pleaded not guilty via a written plea on Bieber's behalf to driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license in January following his Miami bust.

We're told that Bieber's legal team is still waiting to see if the hitmaker will be charged with reckless driving. Bieber's rep has declined to comment.

According to TMZ, the reported settlement took so long because the judge wanted the "Beauty and a Beat" singer to appear in an anti-drug PSA as part of his plea bargain. While TMZ claims the judge ultimately backed down, our source has heard nothing of the rumored PSA.

TMZ also reports that the 20-year-old pop star will not be placed on probation, nor will he have to attend a drug and alcohol education course.

Following his arrest, Bieber admitted to smoking marijuana and using prescription anti-depressants. He also fessed up to drinking a beer earlier in the night.

A breath test showed that Bieber's blood-alcohol level was below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers, although other tests detected marijuana and Xanax in his system at the time of his arrest.

Meanwhile, District Attorney spokesperson Jane Robison told E! News on Thursday that the court has declined to file felony charges in regards to the pop singer's attempted robbery investigation citing insufficient evidence. They have referred the case to the city attorney for misdemeanor consideration.

According the police report obtained by E! News, nine employees of the park were interviewed and none of them saw Bieber grab the victim's phone or any physical altercation of any kind. Justin's attorney told police that the celeb would not submit to an interview. Additionally, there were no security cameras or any video footage of the incident that came forward. Based on those reasons, the DA declined to prosecute.
