Bieber gets trial date for DUI

A trial date has been set for Justin Bieber in Miami for his recent arrest on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an invalid license.

The March 3 date for the three misdemeanours was set Tuesday by an automated court system. Bieber's attorneys have filed a written plea of not guilty. Initial trial dates are often delayed.

The 19-year-old pop star from Stratford, Ont., was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police called an illegal drag race between two exotic sports cars driven by Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff. Sharieff was also arrested on a DUI charge.

Breath tests showed Bieber's blood alcohol content below the .02 threshold for underage drivers. Police say a toxicology test detected marijuana and Xanax in his system.
