MIAMI, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Miami officials have released 10 hours of surveillance footage of Justin Bieber in jail after his drunk-driving and drag-racing arrest last month.

Local and national media outlets requested access to the tapes under Florida's public records laws, though Bieber's attorneys argued that the release of some of the footage would constitute an invasion of the Canadian singer's privacy.

A judge is still reviewing parts of the tapes that Bieber's lawyers considered sensitive, like video of Bieber taking a urine test.

He tested below the state's blood-alcohol limit for drivers under 21, but had taken marijuana and Xanax.

Bieber, who notoriously smiled for his mugshot, appears calm during his time in jail. He does push-ups, talks to the police and stumbles slightly during a toe-line sobriety test.

The 19-year-old has plead not guilty to charges of resisting arrest, driving under the influence and driving with an expired license.
