Justin Bieber: Shaky Sobriety Test Was Caused by Broken Foot

March 19, 2014 (2:45 am) GMT
The 'Baby' singer claims that he was not under influence during his DUI arrest in January, saying that he seemed unsteady because of a hairline fracture on his right foot.

, who was arrested on suspicion of DUI in Miami Beach in January, was ordered to do a sobriety test at Miami-Dade County Jail. In a police video which was released in February, Bieber seemingly swayed when he walked the line. The pop star, however, insisted that the apparent shaky steps were not caused by drugs, but broken foot.

As reported by The Associated Press, Bieber told the police that he broke his right foot while playing skateboard three months earlier. The officer noted that Bieber appeared to have swayed, had leg tremors and winced as if in pain while carrying out the test. "He appeared to have great difficulty," read a Miami Beach police document released on Tuesday, March 18. The injury, however, was never mentioned before or after the test.

Bieber was "agitated and condescending" when he was in custody, the report added. "I'm 19 years old. I'm just out having a good time. What were you doing when you were 19?" the star was quoted as saying. When the officer answered that he did not drive Lamborghini at that age, Bieber replied, "Yeah, well, I bet you didn't have millions of dollars in your bank account either."

Bieber was arrested on January 23 for DUI, driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest. The pop star, who was arrested with an R&B singer called Khalil Amir Sharieff, has pleaded not guilty to the charges. According to the report, Bieber also said that at that time he and his security teams in Cadillac Escalade SUVs were trying to avoid paparazzi. Bieber's trial date is set for May 5.
