Justin Bieber pleads guilty to a lesser charge in Miami

Pleads guilty to misdemeanour careless driving and resisting arrest charges, but avoids jail time...

Justin Bieber has pleaded guilty to misdemeanour careless driving and resisting arrest charges seven months after his arrest in Miami Beach following what police initially called an illegal street drag race.

The 20-year-old pop star's plea deal with prosecutors detailed at a Wednesday hearing includes a 12-hour anger management course, a $50,000 charitable contribution and court fines. The deal allows Bieber to avoid a driving under the influence conviction.

Bieber was not present at the hearing before Miami-Dade Circuit Judge William Altfield.

Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested January 23rd while driving exotic sports cars along a quiet residential street.

Breath tests found Bieber's blood alcohol level below the limit for underage drivers, but urine tests revealed the presence of marijuana and an anti-anxiety drug.
