Justin Bieber and Miami prosecutors have reached a plea deal in the pop star’s careless driving case, which once involved a DUI charge. That driving under the influence charge has been dropped and, in exchange, Bieber will take an anger management course.
The news was first reported by the Miami Herald ahead of a court hearing today in Miami criminal court. Bieber will not be in attendance himself and will be represented by lawyers appearing before Miami-Dade County Judge Bill Altfield.
According to the paper, prosecutors will drop the DUI charge in exchange for the Biebs agreeing to plead guilty to the remaining charges. These include careless driving and resisting an officer without violence.
So, Bieber will not face any jail time. Instead, he will have a private. 12-hour anger management course and he gets to watch videos about DUI tragedies. He will also make a $50,000 donation.
Bieber, 20, was arrested back in January by Miami Beach police, who allegedly saw Bieber participating in a drag race. When an officer attempted to arrest him, Bieber ran off a slew of f-bombs. It had been rumored in June that there was a plea deal set in the case, but court proceedings was delayed.
The singer is also going to have to attend anger management classes for his egging case back in California, notes TMZ. He will also be on two years of probation.
