Trial date set for Justin Bieber in Miami in connection with his recent arrest

Justin Bieber was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving on January 23

A trial date has been set for Justin Bieber in Miami for his recent arrest on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an invalid licence.

The March 3 date for the three misdemeanours was set today by an automated court system. Bieber's lawyers have filed a written plea of not guilty.

Initial trial dates are often delayed.

The 19-year-old pop star was arrested on January 23 in Miami Beach after what police called an illegal drag race between two exotic sports cars driven by Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff. Sharieff was also arrested on a DUI charge.

Breath tests showed Bieber's blood alcohol content below the .02 threshold for underage drivers. Police say a toxicology test detected marijuana and Xanax in his system.
