Justin Bieber’s DUI trial date has been moved once again.
At a hearing in Miami on Tuesday (March 11), Bieber’s hearing date was set for May 5. His trial was originally scheduled to begin on March 3, but was postponed while his lawyers handled the release of police videos that showed the singer submitting to a urine test in a police station.
At the same hearing, prosecutors said that, contrary to reports, Bieber has not been offered a plea deal the case. In late January, he pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver’s license.
Since being arrested in Miami in January, Bieber’s trial date has now been changed twice — it was originally set to begin on February 14 then was bumped to March 3.
The troubled singer was asked about his on/off girlfriend during his deposition last week – part of the ongoing lawsuit after his bodyguard allegedly beat up a photographer – and refused to answer questions, but now the lawyer has insisted he has a right to know whether they are currently dating.
According to gossip website TMZ, the Beauty and a Beat hitmaker may have to open up about their rumoured reconciliation after court documents were filed.
The lawyer – representing the photographer – has claimed Justin and Selena’s relationship is relevant to the case because she was with him at the scene of another apparent attack on a paparazzo in 2012.
It is said if Justin and Selena are back together, she could be considered a biased witness and not credible.
He responded: “Don’t ask me about her! Do not ask me about her!”
In addition to forcing Justin to answer questions about the Spring Breakers actress, the lawyer also wants him to be punished for his rude behaviour before he walked out of court during the deposition.
