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.

Oh, Justina! Do you feel like America is "picking on you"? I hope you do. Because quite a few Americans are tired of your antics and we don't care how old you are!

Some of us won't cut you any slack for your boorish behavior. Time to grow up, man up and act like someone who's worthy of respect. Until you figure that out then you will be held in contempt by many people because you don't respect the luck and the blessings that you got to get where you are now.

Gratitude is important and you show nothing of the sort to your fans and the general public, not to mention your neighbors.

Go back to Canada. We are tired of your disrespect for the country that made you a multi-millionaire.

Good riddance!    

The message he should take away from all this is he should just stay where he's welcome and that's with his new found best buddy, Mayor Rob Ford. It will just be so much more efficient for him to quit messing around with the 'light stuff' like pot and this syrup drank crap and just get into a full time crack smoking habit.

Ok enough! I think this kid stubborn and annoying . He has no inner circle role models amd he is begging to escape. Get him away from people for awhile. He needs urgent rehab. Stat.

The TMZ staff are forgetting Super Bowl is 2 days away.
Biebs is stupid enough to befriend sketchy people.
He deserves to be checked out.
I saw the towers go down.
Lost a lot of friends.

Castrate him and sever his manhood. He'll be less aggressive, women will lose interest in him and his singing voice will improve. On the negative side, he might buy a pet chimp and molest children.....

I'm curious. Why has Beeber tossed away his old friends and hooked up with no good users "Lil Diss" and "Lil Dass". They don't seem to work but they sure know how to party, especially when Beeber's not home. Seems like Justina can't figure out how he's geittng used. Maybe he should go talk to MCHAMMER to see how users bleed people dry...

Smoking weed and you knew you'd be searched? What we have here is a total disrespect of the law.get arrested in the south. We know what to do with people who do things with eggs. Just ask Cool Hand Luke.
