Police videotape of Justin Bieber to become public

Feb. 26, 2014 at 3:00 AM

MIAMI, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- The public could soon be getting a new look at Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber from videotapes made by Miami Beach police when he was arrested.

The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office said the 10 hours of video should become public Wednesday afternoon, the Miami Herald reported. Bieber's lawyers said Tuesday they would not object to the release under Florida's broad public records law.

The lawyers have asked a judge to keep a few clips under seal that show Bieber providing urine for a drug test. The Herald and other media outlets have contested that, and a ruling is expected next week.

Bieber, 19, was arrested Jan. 23 and faces charges of driving under the influence of drugs. Police in Miami Beach said the star's security guards closed off a street so Bieber could drag race a Lamborghini.

Bieber allegedly admitted he had taken prescription drugs. Investigators said marijuana and Xanax was found in his urine.

Lawyer Howard Srebnick said the video of Bieber urinating should remain private: "No reason why the media should make a spectacle of that event, even if it happens to be someone who is high profile."
