The pop star struck a pretty awesome plea deal in his Miami DUI case and as part of the deal, the Canadian pop star will attend a private, 12-hour anger-management course.

According to the Miami Herald, the state is expected to drop the DUI charge and Bieber will plead guilty for careless driving and resisting an officer without violence. The case is set to wrap up today in a Miami courtroom.

Per the Herald, the 20-year-old will also have to view online videos that “depict the stories of real-life, tragic DUI cases,” pay court fines and cough up $50,000 to a charitable donation.

Back in January, Bieber was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI and drag racing a yellow Lamborghini after leaving a nightclub. Cops said Bieber appeared to be incoherent and resisted arrest without violence, using some choice words while be questioned. Miami PD also stated that the singer failed a field sobriety test and made some “statements that he had consumed some alcohol, and that he had been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication.”

But their were a few holes in the evidence. Police surveillance video shows that Bieber was not stumbling drunk and his blood-alcohol level was below the legal limit.

‘GQ’ Cover Star LeBron James Has Hard Yet Necessary Convo W/ His Kids About Racism

Published

It is a conversation that is difficult yet necessary: Racism.

For LeBron James, that conversation was had in depth after someone spray pained the N-word all over his Brentwood home. In a new interview with GQ magazine, the November cover star opened up about the emotional discussion with his sons and daughter.

“It’s heavy when a situation occurs either with myself or with someone in a different city, i.e., Trayvon, Mike Brown. I have to go home and talk to my 13- and 10-year-old sons, even my 2-year-old daughter, about what it means to grow up being an African-American in America,” he said about feeling the “twoness” in America.

He continued, “Because no matter how great you become in life, no matter how wealthy you become, how people worship you, or what you do, if you are an African-American man or African-American woman, you will always be that.”

James explained, “True colors will show, and it showed for me during the playoffs, where my house in Brentwood, California, one of the f*cking best neighborhoods in America, was vandalized with, you know, the N-word. And that shit puts it all back into perspective. So do I use my energy toward that? Or do I now shed a light on how I can use this negative to turn into a positive, because so many people are looking for what I’m going to say.”

That’s when he unveiled, “I had a conversation with my kids. I let them know this is what it is, this is how it’s going to be. When it’s time for y’all to fly, you’ll have to understand that. When y’all go out in public and y’all start driving or y’all start moving around, be respectful to cops, as much as you can. When you get pulled over, call your mom or dad, put it on speakerphone, and put your phone underneath the seat. But be respectful the whole time.”

Earlier this year multiple LAPD units responded to James’ California home when neighbors saw the word scrawled on the outer gate. At the time, James suggested that when it comes to racial inequality, “we have a long way to go.”
