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.
