POP SINGER Justin Bieber is expected to plead guilty to lesser charges over his arrest in Florida in what police initially described as an illegal street race.
It is believed the 20-year-old star will plead guilty to a careless driving misdemeanour and resisting arrest without violence charges, rather than the original driving under the influence charge. Bieber will also agree to take an anger management course and make a $50,000 (£30,000) charitable donation, in addition to paying fines. The plea agreement does not call for a prison sentence.
Bieber was arrested on 23 January at Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal street race between his rented Lamborghini and a Ferrari driven by R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff. Bieber was below the alcohol limit, but tested positive for marijuana and Xanax.
