New video has been released of Justin Bieber's arrest at a police station in Florida.

In one clip Justin Bieber appears to be doing what appears to be a sobriety test.

Lawyers for the 19-year-old singer persuaded a judge to withhold four clips depicting Bieber urinating in a cup for a drug test.

Bieber has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence, resisting arrest and invalid-license charges following his 23 January arrest.

Justin Bieber tested positive for marijuana and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax following his arrest in Florida last week, a preliminary toxicology report showed.

The tests showed no presence of other illicit substances, the Associated Press reported.

The 19-year-old Canadian singer was held last week on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and having an expired driving license.

Bieber has pleaded not guilty but did tell police last week that he had been smoking marijuana and had taken a prescription drug.

Bieber deportation petition sparks White House review

A petition calling for troubled pop singer Justin Bieber to be deported has gained more than 177,000 signatures forcing the White House to consider the request.

The White House is obliged to respond to petitions which have gathered more than 100,000 signatures within 30 days.

The petition was created in the wake of Bieber's arrest for drink-driving in Miami last week.

Bieber has been hit with a string of legal troubles and was charged with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto yesterday.

A rival petition calling for Bieber to remain in the USA has so far only gathered 2,500 signatures.

Bieber has perhaps overtaken British journalist and chat show host Piers Morgan as the most unpopular person living in America, after around 109,000 supporters signed a similar petition calling for the journalist's deportation last year.

Teenage pop idol Justin Bieber could be spending Valentine's Day in court after a judge said the next stage of his case would be heard on Friday February 14th.

The hearing at a Florida court is expected to see prosecutors formally file charges after his arrest last week.

Bieber is also expected to enter a plea, but this may be done by his lawyer and the singer might not be required to attend.

The troubled singer appeared in court last week via video link on charges of driving with an expired licence, driving under the influence and resisting arrest before his bail was set at 2,500 US dollars (£1,500).

The 19-year-old, famed for hits such as Boyfriend and Beauty And A Beat, was arrested after police saw two cars racing through the streets at double the speed limit.
