Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Drugs, Drunk, Legal Issues, Rumors

Justin BieberJustin Bieber is close to reaching a plea deal in his driving under the influence (DUI) case.

The "Boyfriend" hitmaker was arrested in Miami in January and charged with DUI, resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver's license, but all three charges will be dropped if he pleads no contest to reckless driving, TMZ reports.

It was previously claimed the 20-year-old star - who will receive a year's probation as part of the agreement - would refuse a plea deal if it involved being subjected to random drug testing, but the proposal from prosecutors does not include this as a condition.

Justin was driving a rented yellow Lamborghini when police stopped him for allegedly drag racing. Toxicology test results later showed the singer had traces of marijuana and Xanax in his system at the time of the arrest.

Chris PineChris Pine has pleaded guilty to drink driving.

The Star Trek actor was fined $93 and had his driver's license suspended for six months during a court hearing at the Ashburton district court in New Zealand today. Chris' lawyer, Marilyn Gilchrist, had applied for the star to be discharged without conviction after claiming he had already suffered emotionally and professionally because of the worldwide negative coverage of his crime. The judge, Joanna Maze, said she accepted Chris was "entirely remorseful" of his actions as he had pleaded guilty to the charge at the earliest opportunity and had complied with the police.

The 33-year-old star was stopped by officers in a "routine operation" in Methven, Canterbury, New Zealand, on March 1 and was arrested after tests revealed his blood-alcohol level was 0.11 per cent, which is over New Zealand's legal limit of 0.08 per cent.

Chris was in the country filming Z for Zachariah and had been out celebrating the end of the shoot, the night before he was arrested.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Drugs, Legal Issues

Justin BieberJustin Bieber has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) and drag racing.

The "Boyfriend" hitmaker was arrested earlier today in Miami Beach, Florida, after driving a rented Lamborghini, police sources told NBC 6 South Florida. There are no further details about the arrest at this stage but Justin is believed to be in police custody and a police statement is due this afternoon.

According to TMZ, Justin had just left a club and had a model in the passenger seat when he started racing a man in a red Lamborghini, who was also arrested. Justin has visited a number of place in the town this week and yesterday posted a photograph on Instagram of him at a skate park with friends.

Meanwhile, Justin - who reportedly spent $75,000 at a strip club over the weekend - had his home in Calabasas, California, searched by police last week after he was accused of a vicious egg attack on his neighbor. Justin's mother Pattie Mallette urged fans to pray for her son this week and insisted fame was to blame for his behavioral issues and wild antics: "I think so many people go into the entertainment industry with amazing Christian roots and they go in with the right morals and they get influenced somehow. I ask that people keep me and Justin in their minds. I pray for him every day."

Lamar OdomLamar Odom has been given three years probation for Driving Under the Influence (DUI).

The troubled basketball star struck a plea deal with a California court and has admitted no contest to the charge, in return for probation, having to complete an alcohol education class by next June and paying $1,814 in fees and fines.

Lamar - whose marriage to Khloe Kardashian has been rocked by allegations of infidelity and drug use - was arrested on August 30 after driving erratically on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles showing what officers called "objective signs of intoxication." The reality star refused to a blood-alcohol test after his arrest, which led to automatic one-year driving ban, which still stands.

"He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests. That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year," California Highway Patrol public information officer Leland Tang previously told RadarOnline.
