Justin Bieber urine test video released

Justin Bieber and pee are in the news again. On Thursday, prosecutors released Florida police video of the pop star giving a urine sample for a drug test after his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence and other charges.

The clips — which show Bieber being handed a cup by a police officer and later handing it back — picture the 20-year-old singer standing behind a low partition. A black box is imposed over his lower half to conceal his genitalia.

The video is part of nine discs of Miami Beach Police Department video sought under public-records laws by The Associated Press and other news organizations.

A Miami-Dade County judge agreed earlier this week with Bieber’s attorneys that some segments should be redacted to protect his privacy.

The drug test is key to Bieber’s DUI case because it found evidence of marijuana and the drug Xanax in the singer’s system. Bieber also was charged Jan. 23 with resisting arrest and having an expired license. He has pleaded not guilty. Another status hearing is set for next week.
