Hearing set in Justin Bieber's Miami DUI case

MIAMI (AP) — A hearing is scheduled to determine whether Justin Bieber will be tried on charges of driving under the influence and resisting arrest.

Tuesday's hearing in Miami is meant for prosecutors and Bieber's lawyers to tell a judge if they're ready for trial, or if there is a plea deal in place.

Bieber was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal street race between Bieber and a friend.

Alcohol breath tests found Bieber's level below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers but urine tests showed the presence of marijuana and an anti-anxiety drug. Bieber was also charged with driving on an expired license.

It's unknown whether Bieber will attend the hearing.
