Justin Bieber's trial date has been set.

The 20-year-old pop star is scheduled to appear in a Florida court on May 5 to face charges stemming from his Jan. 23 DUI arrest after he was caught drag racing by police in Miami with his father Jeremy Bieber and friends.

In addition to driving under the influence, the "Boyfriend" singer will also face charges of resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver's license. Bieber has pleaded not guilty and no plea deal has been made on his behalf.

The originally scheduled trial date for the Biebs was postponed after attorneys for the star fought against the release of jail surveillance videos that showed Bieber giving a urine sample for a drug test. While breath tests showed Bieber's blood-alcohol level was below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers, other tests detected marijuana and Xanax in his system at the time of his arrest.

Adding to Bieber's legal woes is a separate civil suit filed against him by a Miami photographer who claims he was assaulted by one of the singer's security guards. Bieber recently gave an hours-long deposition for the case in which he displayed less than cooperative behavior while being questioned by attorneys.

DUI charges aside and with the deposition in his past, Bieber took to Twitter yesterday to share this positive message with fans, writing, "Love how some people use to twist and justify the horrible action of others. We all have a right to defend ourselves and feel harassed."
