Justin Bieber’s jet was detained based on suspicion of contraband at the Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, on Friday, January 31, 2014. The pop star yet again grabbed headlines based on suspicions that he was carrying marijuana on board. He was heading to New York City from Canada. He recently was arrested in Toronto on assault charges filed by a limo driver.
It was 3 p.m. in the afternoon on Friday when officers from the Customs and Border Protection detected a “marijuana-like” smell as Bieber was returning from Toronto to New York City for the upcoming Super Bowl game and parties. Bieber’s jet was detained based on the odor. However, the inspectors did not find any contraband inside Bieber’s private jet.
Bieber’s jet was making the trek and once arriving back to the States, customs officials typically check the planes to review for any illegal activities, or items. While Bieber was detained, he was not arrested after officials failed to find anything illegal aboard his plane. Bieber was able to move on for the final leg of his travel. The teen titan singer has not been so lucky in other areas of encountering the law.
Bieber was arrested on January 23, 2014, for drag-racing with an expired license. He resisted the arrest, per officers and was listed as driving under influence of drugs, alcohol and prescription drugs in Miami, Florida. The laboratory tests confirmed Bieber was driving under the influence of drugs. Bieber turned himself to the Toronto Police on Wednesday January 29, 2014, based on assault charges filed against him by his limousine driver who fled the scene after calling the police in late December. Bieber was also involved with an egg tossing vandalism and narcotics possession in Los Angeles, California earlier this January.
Bieber’s friend Lil Za was arrested in a raid at Bieber’s LA residence two weeks ago. Lil Za was found with possession of drugs and has been charged with three different felonies. He can face a nine year jail time sentence. Lil Za, whose real name is Xavier Smith, 19, was caught with drugs by the Los Angeles County Sheriff in an investigation held at Bieber’s home. Bieber’s neighbor complained about the damage he done in an egg tossing attack. However, Bieber had no connection to the felonies charged against Lil Za. Nor to the substance found with Lil Za. The investigation on the case is still proceeding. Bieber’s encounters with the law authorities continues.
Bieber’s bad behaviors has been all over the news. There is a petition signed by more 100,000 people to deport Bieber back to his native country Canada. The Obama administration needs to seriously consider the petition. Miley Cyrus, 21, the infamous twerking pop star advises Bieber, “Pay people to make sure you don’t get in trouble and party at your house, buy a house, and add a club to it.” Seemingly, Bieber is always in some controversy which shows his irresponsible actions. Although, at the Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, he was not arrested, Bieber’s jet was detained based on the review of potential drugs – none were located.
