Justin Bieber is finally ready to deal.
Months after being arrested on a multitude of charges, most alarmingly drunk driving and drag racing, Bieber and his legal team have reportedly agreed to a plea bargain.
According to TMZ, it will involve the singer pleading guilty to reckless driving, while have all other counts dismissed.
He will pay a fine. He will attend anger management classes. He will NOT go to jail and he will NOT be placed on probation.
Reports indicate Bieber was neither legally drunk nor drag racing at the time he was pulled over in Miami. He did, however, test positive for marijuana.
Many earlier rumors of a Bieber plea bargain, why did it take so long for a deal to finally be reached?
A source cites two reasons:
- The judge wanted Justin to star in an anti-drug PSA. But the artist's team objected and the judge eventually relented.
- Prosecutors wanted Bieber to attend an alcohol management course. In the end, after the superstar's team argued that their boy does not have a substance abuse issue, anger management was agreed upon as a compromise.
Look for this settlement to be reached in court over the next week or two.
Once JB completes the requirements of the deal, the reckless driving charge will be wiped from his record.
In the meantime, Bieber is also working on a plea bargain for his egging case.
