Did Justin Bieber step out of line on the night he was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence in Miami?
The Miami State's Attorney's Office has released roughly nine hours of video footage taken around the time the 19-year-old was arrest, a few minutes of which show Bieber taking a sobriety test while in custody following his Jan. 23 bust.
Per footage that has been viewed by NBC News, Bieber—still wearing the black sweatshirt, shorts and orange sneakers he was clubbing in beforehand—Bieber and pal Khalil Sharieff, who was also arrested for alleged DUI, are seen talking to an apparent authority figure after being taken into custody. Then they talk to each other for a bit and, at one point, Bieber does some push-ups. (Alas, the footage contains no audio.)
About a half-hour later, Bieber spends about 30 seconds walking a straight line one way, and then walking back the way he came. Upon turning around, he stumbles slightly.
About 30 seconds later, police have him do it again on a marked white line, and he lingers over his first step, then steps off the line once before proceeding to walk.
After that's over, Bieber just stands around waiting, arms folded, while Sharieff sits in a chair in the same room. In some other portions of the video, Bieber is seen pacing around his holding cell.
Footage of him using the toilet at any point in the cell was redacted from the DVD.
Bieber has pleaded not guilty to DUI, reckless driving and driving with an expired license.
Meanwhile, the fun continues (both of the actual and idiomatic variety).
Bieber had a blast on Sunday driving indoor karts at Andretti Indoor Karting and games near where he's been staying in the Atlanta area, but now a member of his entourage is in trouble.
One of his bodyguards was arrested last night along with another man on suspicion of stealing a paparazzo's $10,000 camera.
According to the Sandy Springs Police Department, a photographer reported that his camera was stolen out of his car that was parked outside of an arcade that had been rented out by Bieber. The shutterbug told police that 32-year-old Hugo Hesny told him to back off. Per the police news release, a confrontation ensued and when the alleged victim tried to leave the scene, Hesny somehow caught up and grabbed the camera, taking it back with him to his Cadillac Escalade and instructed the driver, Terrance Johnson, to drive back to Bieber's house. (The teen is said to be renting a home nearby.)
Police say they also found a small amount of marijuana in the Escalade, but not enough to press charges.
Johnson is not going to be charged in the incident, but the charge against Hesny has since been upgraded by the Fulton County District Attorney's Office from theft to felony robbery by snatch. Hesny was booked last night and remains in custody at the Fulton County Jail.
