Justin Bieber DUI Charges Dropped: Plea Deal Includes Anger Management Courses
Justin Bieber has worked out a plea deal for the DUI charges against him in connection with his Miami Beach arrest in January.
A source confirms to Us Weekly that the charges will be dropped in exchange for Justin attending anger management courses.
In addition to driving under the influence (DUI), Justin was charged with resisting arrest; police claimed in their report that he cursed at them and ignored their instructions.
The insider says noting that Justin won’t even be put on probation:
It’s a really good deal and he’s happy with it. He thinks it’s fair. He just wants to put the whole bad episode behind him and move on.
According to TMZ, the reported settlement took so long because the judge wanted Justin to appear in an anti-drug PSA as part of his plea bargain. But the judge ultimately backed down.
TMZ also reports Justin will not be placed on probation, nor will he have to attend a drug and alcohol education course.
In other good news, Justin also learned this week that he won’t face a felony charge for the cellphone-snatching incident he got into in May 2014.
CNN reported Friday, June 13, that the L.A. County district attorney decided not to pursue “felony prosecution.” The robbery complaint — from a woman at Sherman Oaks Castle Park — will instead to go the city attorney, who will determine whether to file a misdemeanor charge against the Biebs.
