The video showing Justin Bieber in custody has just been released. During the arrest video, the singer can be seen walking for a sobriety test.
In the video, Justin is seen at the Florida police station, where the singer was taken following his arrest on 23 January. Another video of Justin Bieber urinating into a cup was not made public, at least for now. Of course, Justin’s lawyers were against the decision to make both of these videos public.
However, prosecutors decided that there is nothing wrong about disclosing the video footage of Justin Bieber at the police station. The decision actually came after weeks of discussion on this subject. The popular singer was charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with invalid license. Bieber has pleaded not guilty to all these charges.
Bieber’s lawyers have been concerned with the possibility of compromising images of the singer to be out. However, the video does not show anything shocking or that might compromise the singer.
The blood tests that were performed following the arrest indicated that his alcohol level was under legal limits.
However, urine tests have found traces of marijuana and Xanax. Reports revealed that Justin Bieber claimed that he smoked marijuana all night at the studio, while police said that he smelled of alcohol.
It is known that the police has in its custody 4 more videos of Bieber, which his lawyers said should not be released to the public. According to them, these videos can create irreparable damage to the singer.
“Justin’s lawyers fought tooth and nail to stop them being seen but in reality they appear to help his case not hinder it,” a source claimed according to The Mirror. “He looks quite steady on his feet despite the initial accusations he had been drinking and high on drugs,” it added.
In the video that was just released to the public, Justin Bieber is also seen working out in his cell. It is claimed that this is because the singer is trying to relieve pressure and tension.
At the time of the arrest it was believed that Bieber and his friends were preparing for a race with their luxurious sport cars. However, Bieber was not accused with illegal car racing. The singer failed to appear in court at the last hearing on the case.
Still, more issues might arise for Bieber. The star’s bodyguard was arrested in Atlanta, while police officers claim that they found marijuana in the singer’s car.
