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.

He I will get caught, the law is out to get him and they will. Btw, that looks like a high end corporate jet, not cheap. Between the lawyers, accountants, managers and idiotic spending. He will be broke in less than 2 years. And at this rate dead in less than 10 years. Prison maybe the only way to save his life at this point.

The Studs in Prison are salivating at the thought of the Beaver LottoTicket (Cell-Mate) that may be coming to a Prison near them soon.

The Beaves will be The Lollipop Twink of Twinks and be in such high demand, the richest Dons in the Prisons will be bidding to the Section-Chief in charge of Cell-Assignments. The Beaves Beaver will cost allot to Pop His Cherry at "The Debutwink Ball at The Walpole". Not to be confused with "The Debutant Ball at The Waldorf".

When this happens The Beaves thinks of the Movie "Taken" right away.

The most serious case is in LA, the Felony Egg Case, if found guilty he would go to a Prison in LA.

When he walks in the door does he go talk to the White Nazi KKK Folks or his Black Homies first?

After two back to back crime cases registered by custom officials put justin Bieber in a difficulty. His career just started and I think in the near time it will effect on his career.
Thanks

What is the big deal? He smokes pot. Is it not legal in 2 States? It will be soon in other States. What about all the stars that do it and don't get hassled like this kid. Granted he should not have been driving so if he had enough in his system charge him. TMZ has showed he wasn't drag racing. Omg, the media is just crazy on this kid. Enough already.

The FAA should be investigating the pilots since the pilot could have been high on a contact buzz and his ability to properly operate the aircraft could have been impaired.

If it were just an average person they would have been returned to their country. I do have to say, I'm thrilled at all the trouble he has been receiving. Lil' Thug needs to be sent home or to jail.

Even with my pristine criminal history the US will never be on my list of places to visit. With the constant uploads of seniors, and the disabled getting tazed and beaten to youtube, the erosion rights guaranteed by constitution, and how it treats its own citizens. Your going to see a lot more of the psychotic behavior in your police uniforms, with all the soldiers coming back to work the US streets as police offices.
