Justin Bieber Arrested in Miami


In the early morning hours of Thursday, January 22, 19-year-old pop superstar Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami, Florida under suspicion of drag racing and driving under the influence. Bieber allegedly blocked off the road in a residential area with two sports utility vehicles. He was driving a yellow Lamborghini at excessive speeds, and showed signs of intoxication and impairment. After failing a field sobriety test, Bieber was taken into custody and charged with driving under the influence (DUI).Incidents like these can lead to costly lawsuits and penalties, including high fees and loss of license. Engaging a competent, experienced lawyer is critical to ensure that you will be able to minimize the impact to your family and career. If you are looking for a Miami criminal defense attorney for a DUI, consider Hassett and Associates, P.A., a firm with offices in Davie, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami.

Retaining a Miami DUI  Attorney from Hassett can make the difference between being convicted of a crime and getting acquitted. Legal representation is especially important if this is your first experience in the legal system, which is the case for many people who are arrested for DUI. While the first DUI offense is a misdemeanor in Florida, a conviction will mean a permanent mark on your driving record.

In Florida, your driver’s license is suspended as soon as you’re charged with this crime, but your lawyer may be able to help you obtain a temporary driving permit, which will allow you to continue to attend work and school. Since this process must begin with an administrative hearing within 10 days of the arrest, it’s important to contact a DUI criminal defense attorney as soon as possible after the incident.

While Bieber was found to have a blood alcohol level of .14, which is under the legal limit in Florida, the singer was found to have both marijuana and Xanax in his system. He’ll be formally charged during an arraignment on February 14.

If you or a family member is in need of a DUI criminal defense attorney, consider Hassett and Associates, PA. You can contact the firm’s Miami office at 305-567-1211.
