It appears Justin Bieber may have caught a big break in his DUI case.
According to TMZ, the 19-year-old had nearly no alcohol in his system at the time of his arrest - a .014 blood alcohol level. Even for someone underage like the Biebs, the limit is .02 percent.
It’s unclear if Miami Beach PD took blood samples in which to test for marijuana and Xanax, which he was also allegedly under the influence of. But if they didn’t – and that BAC holds up – Justin could be looking at only reckless driving charges for his little street racing stunt.
Miami Beach PD re-iterated Friday that “DUI covers -influence of alcoholic beverages, any chemical substance or any controlled substance .”
RumorFix has reached out to MBPD to clarify if blood samples were taken to verify the other substances he was allegedly under the influence of.
