update_graphic_red_barWe're told Bieber has just been released by Custom's officials ... after 5-hours of heavy grilling.

Justin Bieber
was flagged by U.S. Customs officials when he landed in New Jersey this afternoon because he has 2 pending criminal cases ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Bieber is still being grilled by Customs people ... after they searched his plane because they allegedly smelled weed.  The search turned up nothing. 

We're told -- as a result of the Patriot Act -- Customs officials have broad power to flag people coming in from another country when they have an active criminal case or a conviction.  Justin currently has an assault case in Canada and a DUI case in Miami Beach.

Sources say Bieber is being "put through the grinder" right now by Customs folks.  As one source said, "Once you're flagged it's a grueling process to get in the country."

It's almost certain Justin will eventually be cleared to leave Teterboro Airport because both alleged offenses are minor.

As we first reported ... Justin flew there for the Super Bowl.

I like how tmz has decided that beating the crap out of a guy and driving on an expired license while high on weed and pills are "minor" charges spanning two countries. Way to minimize criminal behavior!

Please deport this clown already. Let him be Canada's problem. We're better off without him and "Canadian Ted" (Cruz).

As an admitted drug user they don't have to let him in.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAA I guarantee if the situation were reversed, Canada would NOT let a self admitted drug user non-citizen with pending criminal charges across THEIR borders.

He deserves all the trouble he's getting. He thought that he was invincible up until now. He will think twice about doing something stupid from now on. It's time to take responsibility for your actions.

"because both alleged offenses are minor." They are so minor that the US Federal Government searched his private jet, flagged him, interviewed him and will have to determine whether or not to allow him into our great nation. Minor? MINOR? Keep entitling him and minimizing his criminal acts, tmz!
