Someone Justin’s size would probably have higher than a .014 with a single beer. According to the police report.. the arresting officer was leaning into the car, talking to Justin just after the stop and the cop says, ‘I immediately smelled an odor of alcohol eminating [sic] from the driver’s breath.’
Justin was then arrested and taken to a holding facility, where another officer said he smelled ‘..the odor of an alc bev on his breath.’ Justin insisted at the scene he was NOT drunk.
Cops say he failed his field sobriety test. Do YOU think cops lied? Either way if he’s mixing alcohol, prescription drugs and weed, he should NOT be driving!
POLICE UPDATE: Three Florida cops have been suspended for allegedly giving Bieber a police escort earlier this week from the airport to his strip club after TMZ posted video of 2 police cruisers sandwiching Bieber’s SUV as it made a beeline for the strip joint.
DEPORTATION UPDATE: American Civil Liberties Union is speaking out about how the Canadian citizen’s cash and celebrity connections are keeping him from being deported from the US. Bieber was released from jail less than 12 hours after being arrested in connection with DUI and drag racing, a quicker turnaround than other immigrants can often expect.
ACLU Policy Counsel Chris Rickerd told RADAR: ‘The average person who’s susceptible to this won’t have the resources to get the legal representation [that Bieber has]’ and could be indefinitely detained while ICE determines their fate independent of any criminal proceeding.
‘When [Bieber] was arrested and booked, his fingerprints would have been shared with ICE. They would run his fingerprints and show that he was here on this [work] visa. What’s really important for him right now, is he has to have the best criminal representation, to make sure any conviction he comes to doesn’t jeopardize his ability to stay in the U.S. and work here.
Someone with less means won’t have the same leverage to bargain and won’t have the same time with an attorney,” Rickerd says. And since deportation is a civil charge, not criminal, those faced with it are not appointed public attorneys. People have to pay for their own attorneys, which is a disaster.
Many people don’t even get a day in court for immigration, because the law is so strict about automatic deportations and automatic detentions. It’s a huge disconnect.. If convicted, another immigrant in [Bieber’s] situation would very likely languish in immigration detention before being deported.
That person, like 84% of people in immigration detention, would not have an attorney, let alone a high-priced one. While the media is focused on what will happen to Bieber, let’s instead focus on what will happen to all of the other immigrants who are detained and deported for lesser offenses than his.’
