Justin Bieber gets March trial date for Miami arrest

06 February 2014, 10:21

Miami - Justin Bieber has a trial date next month in Miami for his recent arrest on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an invalid licence.

The 3 March date for the three misdemeanours was set on Tuesday by an automated court system. Bieber's attorneys have filed a written plea of not guilty. Initial trial dates are often delayed.

The 19-year-old pop star was arrested on 23 January in Miami Beach after what police called an illegal drag race between two sports cars driven by Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff. Sharieff was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence.

Breath tests showed Bieber's blood alcohol content below the .02 threshold for underage drivers. Police say a toxicology test detected marijuana and Xanax in his system.
