Seven months after international pop star Justin Bieber was arrested in South Beach for driving under the influence, his case is expected to conclude Wednesday in a plea deal that includes an anger-management class.
But Beliebers, don’t bother showing up to Miami criminal court — the Canadian paparazzi-magnet is not expected to appear at the Wednesday afternoon hearing.
The state is expected to drop the DUI charge, and his lawyers will accept a guilty plea for careless driving and resisting an officer without violence, according to Miami Herald sources.
As part of the deal, the Biebs will have to attend a 12-hour anger-management course — private classes, because anything else would morph into a media-and-fan frenzy that would be distracting to other participants.
Never miss a local story.
He’ll also have to view online videos that depict the stories of real-life, tragic DUI cases. The singer will also pay court fines and has agreed to a $50,000 charitable donation.
Bieber’s lawyers will appear before Miami-Dade County Judge Bill Altfield.
Back in January, Miami Beach police arrested Bieber and buddy Khalil Sharieff after they allegedly drag-raced down Pine Island Drive, which had been blocked off by the star’s security team.
Bieber, 20, was behind the wheel of a high-octane, yellow Lamborghini after days of partying and recording music in South Florida.
When he was stopped by police, Bieber unleashed a barrage of f-words, police said.
According to Beach cops, the pop star admitted to smoking marijuana and taking prescription medication, and a urine analysis showed he tested positive for marijuana and Xanax.
But the evidence against him was never overwhelming — in police surveillance videos, he did not appear staggeringly intoxicated, and his blood-alcohol level was well below the legal limit.
Sharieff will get a similar plea deal.
The South Beach conviction adds to Bieber’s rap sheet and growing list of antics.
Last month, Bieber pleaded no contest to egging and vandalizing his neighbor’s house. He was placed on two years of probation and was required to take anger-management classes, complete community service and pay restitution to the neighbor.
