Justin Bieber's DUI charges stemming from his January arrest in Miami, Florida will be dropped, and he will also not be put on probation, sources close to Bieber tell ET. Instead, Bieber will pay a fine and attend anger management classes.
Bieber, 20, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license on January 23.
While breath tests showed Bieber's blood-alcohol level was below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers at the time, other tests detected marijuana and Xanax in his system.
According to Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez, Bieber "made some statements that he had consumed some alcohol, and that he had been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication."
Aside from his legal troubles, Bieber has currently been laying low due to two videos that were released earlier this month featuring the Baby singer telling racist jokes. He has since apologized for the videos, and appears to be attempting to clear up his bad-boy image. He recently tweeted a video of him spending time with his siblings at his dad Jeremy Bieber's 40th birthday party, and wrote about "new beginnings."
