Bieber released after search of ‘pot-reeking’ party jet

Officers and police dogs search a jet — believed to be carrying Justin Bieber to the Super Bowl weekend festivities — at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey.
Super Bowl-bound Justin Bieber arrived at a New Jersey airport Friday on a charted jet that reeked of marijuana — and he spent hours in federal custody while the aircraft was searched, law-enforcement sources said.

But the pint-sized pothead, who according to reports burns through $8,000 a week of weed, was released from custody at Teterboro Airport when drug-sniffing canine cops came up empty.

The teen heartthrob’s Gulfstream — with his father, Jeremy, and about 10 other party pals aboard — arrived at 2:53 p.m. from Toronto when federal Customs officials detected a strong odor of pot, sources said.

“He came in, the jet smelled like weed, they were doing preliminary security checks that they don’t usually do as Teterboro is usually pretty relaxed, but because of the ¬Super Bowl they’re doing more security checks,” a Teterboro source said.

“There was a big stir at the airport.”

The plane, with a crew of three, was held until cops and their canines could conduct a thorough check.

Bieber, 19, was taken to a Teterboro holding area while the searches were under way, sources said.

A Customs dog and one from the Port Authority Police signaled there was marijuana in two pieces of luggage, the sources said.

But no cannabis was found, the sources added, and Customs officials allowed Bieber and his entourage to depart.

The airport source said the pilot may have tipped off cops about pot smoking on board because Customs was waiting when the jet touched down.

The “Baby” singer had chartered the jet to attend Sunday’s Super Bowl and pre-game festivities.
Customs officials would not comment.

At 9:15 p.m., he and his entourage showed up in two Cadillac Escalades at the Four Seasons Hotel on East 57th Street, where a crowd of about 50 squealing teen female ¬“Beliebers” were waiting.

The jet incident comes after Toronto cops on Wednesday charged Bieber with assault for allegedly hitting a limo driver on the head.

He already is facing a Miami DUI pot case and remains under investigation for alleged vandalism in California.

In the Miami case, a toxicology report showed Bieber tested positive for pot and the anti-anxiety drug ¬Xanax after his Jan. 23 drag-racing bust.

The Biebs manages to get in the news for the umpteenth day in a row.
Justin Bieber Turned Away At 3 Super Bowl Parties; Snuck Into Maxim Bash
Access Hollywood

Oh, Biebs... sigh...

After a long two weeks filled with a DUI arrest, a reported get-help-or-I'm-out ultimatum from manager Scooter Braun, a voluntary surrender to Toronto police, and a reported private plane delay and search, Justin Bieber was turned away at three Super Bowl parties on Friday night, a source tells Access Hollywood.

However, it wasn't his legal indiscretions which left him turned away at several party doors -- the 19-year-old was simply too young to legally be allowed inside.

Luckily for Justin, he was able to make an under-wraps entrance at the Maxim party presented by Talent Resources Sports in New York City, by sneaking past event staff through a back security/VIP entrance, according to our source.

The "U Smile" singer was rolling 13-people deep and arrived around 12:45 AM.

According to our source, Justin did not drink or smoke while at the party (and eight security guards were assigned to ensuring he behaved).

And in news that may inspire Chantel Jeffries to kick her sexy-selfie game into its highest gear, Justin invited a blond girl into his booth. She accepted his invite, stayed with him for the duration of the evening, then eventually left with The Biebs, according to our source.

Justin, his new lady friend and his entourage left through the back entrance, hopping into a Mercedes and a black SUV, the source adds.

Considering the way this kid goes around with his shirt off and his pants hanging off his rear, it's almost surprising he doesn't want "semi-clad" images made public.
Lawyers seek to shield Bieber's images from media

MIAMI - Lawyers for pop star Justin Bieber are asking a judge to prevent semi-clad images of the teenage singer in Miami Beach police custody following his arrest last month, from being released to the media, according to a motion filed late on Friday.

"While in custody at the Miami Beach police station the defendant was captured on videotape in various states of undress which show intimate personal parts of the defendant's body," the motion states, noting that the Florida constitution and state law prevent such images from being publicly disclosed.

Bieber, 19, was charged with driving under influence, resisting arrest and using an expired license after police say they caught him allegedly drag racing on January 23. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

He also had marijuana and prescription medication for anxiety in his system at the time of his arrest, according to the state attorney's office.

One video of Bieber in police custody being patted down by and Miami Beach officer was already released to the media this week, the motion states, in violation of the law and prior to Bieber's lawyers being notified of its existence.

On Friday, Bieber's Miami lawyers Black, Srebnick, Kornspan & Stumpf, said they learned from the state attorney's office that various news media outlets had filed public records requests for all videotape footage from Bieber's time in detention.

The Miami Beach police and the state attorney's office were not immediately available to comment.

A Florida court has set a March 3 trial date for Bieber, who is Canadian, on the charges stemming from the January 23 arrest.

Bieber, whose private life has taken a tumultuous turn in the past year, was also charged last week with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto in December.
