Justin Bieber I'm A Bad Ass Behind Bars

2/26/2014 2:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
022614_bieber_jail_push_launch_v2
Justin Bieber had his ass up in the air during his short stint in jail ... impressively doing 23 1/2 pushups in 28 seconds.

The jailhouse video -- obtained by TMZ -- shows Justin in his cell after being busted last month in Miami Beach for DUI and resisting arrest.

It's unclear what possessed him to show off his physical prowess, but he seemed excited about upping his cred.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... there's one part of the 9 hours of video which shows Justin clearly under the influence.  Frankly, we've looked at the video and Justin doesn't seem obviously under the influence ... at all.

Justin Bieber Stumbles in DUI Jail Video Cops Think It's Smoking Gun

Here it is ... the footage of Justin Bieber in jail last month following his DUI arrest ... the same footage Bieber tried to keep out of the public eye ... but it may actually HELP him.

The video shows Bieber taking a sobriety test while inside the jail facility -- trying to walk a straight line.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... this particular clip is their best evidence Bieber was under the influence -- because he misses a couple steps -- but we gotta be honest ... it's not THAT bad. Watch the video and judge for yourselves.

As we reported, Justin's lawyers tried to block the release of the footage -- after video surfaced of him getting patted down in jail -- but the judge told them to pound sand.

Justin Bieber GOING TO TRIAL In DUI Case

Justin Bieber
and Miami Beach prosecutors will NOT strike a plea deal in his DUI case ... and sources connected with the case say a trial is now almost certain.

TMZ broke the story ... prosecutors are offering a no contest plea to reckless driving, with strings attached ... notably Justin must submit to random drug testing for 6 to 9 months.  Sources connected with Bieber say they will NOT accept any plea that has probationary terms ... especially drug testing.

Now law enforcement sources tell us ... they will not deal if Justin does not agree to random drug testing ... period.  As a result, both sides are at an impasse.

With a plea deal all but off the table, a trial is likely.  Law enforcement sources acknowledge there are problems with the arresting officers ... the fact that he may have lied when he said he smelled alcohol on Justin's breath (he blew a .014).  And another cop claimed Justin was drag racing (at 27 MPH).

Nonetheless ... we're told prosecutors are not afraid of trying the case.  And Justin's famed lawyer, Roy Black, is ready for a courtroom battle.

At stake -- Justin could be tried for 3 offenses ... DUI, resisting arrest, and driving on an expired license.  Worst case scenario -- 2 1/2 years in jail.

Amanda Bynes Cops Plea in DUI Case

2/24/2014 10:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News
0224-Amanda-bynes-01Amanda Bynes has just scored a victory of sorts in her DUI case, pleading no contest to a lesser offense ... TMZ has learned.

Amanda was arrested in April 2012 in West Hollywood and charged with DUI.

Amanda's lawyer Rich Hutton was in court this morning and accepted a plea of "wet reckless" -- a drinking-related offense that does not have the serious consequences of DUI.

Under the terms of the deal, Amanda will be placed on 3 years probation, must attend a 3-month alcohol ed course, and pay various fines.

It appears her license was suspended because she refused to submit to an alcohol test at the time of her arrest.

Her lawyer tells us she's doing well now.

Justin Bieber Pound Sand Prosecutor I Reject Your Plea Deal

2/23/2014 11:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0222-justin-bieber-getty-02Justin Bieber will REJECT the plea deal prosecutors in his Miami Beach DUI case have offered ... and a big reason is because he doesn't want random drug testing.

TMZ broke the story ... prosecutors offered Bieber a deal they often give to first-time DUI offenders ... it includes community service, an alcohol ed course and random drug testing.

Sources connected to Bieber tell TMZ ... there are several reasons they aren't buying what prosecutors are selling.  First, there are huge problems with the case -- they believe the cop lied when he said Bieber reeked of booze (he only blew a .014), and he was also lying about observing Bieber drag race -- the GPS device registered a very reasonable 27 MPH.

But the bigger issue is this -- our sources say Bieber will NOT accept any plea that has probation ... where the judge can throw the book at him if he screws up.

In particular there's NO WAY Bieber will agree to random drug testing.  Fact is ... he has a problem with weed and sizzurp.   If you don't understand his worry, just remember Lindsay Lohan, who became a habitual probation offender for more than 7 years.

Also, we're told Justin will not accept an alcohol ed course as part of a plea deal, because he'd become a spectacle.

We're told Bieber is open to a plea ... but not this one.

Justin Bieber DUI Plea Deal Offered No Sizzurp, No Weed

EXCLUSIVE
0221-bieber-01
Justin Bieber has become the next contestant in a high-stakes game of Let's Make a Deal ... and door #1 is JAIL.  Door #2 is way better, but he has to be sober.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the Florida State Attorney has offered Justin a plea deal in his DUI/resisting arrest case ...  and we know the terms.

Prosecutors will DROP the DUI and resisting arrest charges, but in return Bieber must:

-- Plead no contest to reckless driving 

-- Complete 40 hours of community service

-- Attend an alcohol ed course

-- Attend a "victim impact panel" (where relatives of DUI victims share their stories)

-- Install an ignition interlock device for 3 months

Now here's the rub.  Prosecutors also want Bieber to submit to random drug testing, and not just in Florida.  He'll have to submit his travel plans to the court and authorities will set up random testing wherever he happens to be ... at his expense.  And testing will last between 6 and 9 months.

Assuming he complies with all the terms and PASSES the drug tests, the reduced plea will formally be entered.

The question -- Will Bieber accept the deal or risk trial, where worst case scenario he could end up in the pokey.

Chris Kattan was back in action Friday night with a brand new ride after totaling his old whip and getting busted for DUI.

Chris was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood in a very nice Mercedes ... and clearly did not want to talk about the wild ride in the old Mercedes that ended up in the junk heap.

0222-chris-kattan-tmz-car-3
TMZ broke the story ... Chris was arrested last week after crashing into a parked vehicle inside a coned area on the 101 Freeway.  Cops say he admitted to being under the influence of drugs, not alcohol.  He appeared totally out of it when he flunked his field sobriety test.

Earlier in the day ... Chris was so whacked out on a flight from Canada to L.A. ... paramedics were there when the plane pulled up to the gate and they treated the former "Saturday Night Live" star.

Miguel just pled no contest to DUI ... and unlike most celebs -- he's freely admitting he screwed up.

The singer was pulled over last August for tinted windows, and cops suspected he was under the influence.  Miguel was arrested and had a blood alcohol level of .11.

The singer, who's had huge hits like "Adorn" and "Beautiful" with Mariah Carey, tells TMZ, "Driving with alcohol in my system was reckless.  I'm really sorry and I'm taking responsibility for this mistake."

Judge Lynne Hobbs placed Miguel on 3 years informal probation, fined him $360, and ordered him to complete an alcohol ed class.

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was passed out behind the wheel of his Rolls Royce before he was arrested for DUI ... according to cops ... and TMZ Sports has a pic of the bust.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, officers in Fairfax County, Virginia responded to a tip about a black male passed out in his car at a traffic light at 3:45 PM on Thursday.

When cops arrived to the scene, they approached the vehicle -- and when Davis rolled down his window, the smell of booze hit the officer like a ton of bricks. .

Cops say Davis admitted he'd been drinking at a friend's house.

Cops say Davis proceeded to perform terribly during field sobriety tests -- and he eventually blew a .17 on a breathalyzer.

Davis was eventually arrested for DUI -- cops towed his car from the scene.

Earlier in the week, Davis was suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy -- though Fred insists he simply took a substance that was not FDA approved.

Justin Bieber Arresting DUI Officer Has Big Credibility Problems

2/20/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0219_bieber_pulled_over_Tmz
The Miami Beach cop who claimed he stopped Justin Bieber last month because he was drag racing has been called on the carpet numerous times for misconduct ... TMZ has learned.

Officer Steven Cosner wrote in his police report he observed cars driven by Bieber and Khalil in the middle of a drag race -- at speeds between 55 and 60 MPH.  TMZ broke the story ... the GPS tracking system shows in the middle of the so-called drag race, the maximum speed of the cars was 27 MPH.

We're told Bieber's legal eagles believe Cosner is lying, and now they have some firepower.

TMZ has obtained numerous Miami Beach PD internal affairs documents, which show Cosner has been accused of misconduct 15 times -- from 2001 to 2012.  Of those, Cosner failed to show up for court hearings 5 times.  In each case he was reprimanded -- 3 verbal warnings and 2 write-ups.

Our sources say ... Bieber's lawyer will raise the issue ... Cosner may not have shown up for court because he may not have wanted to be placed under oath.  In other words, if you lie under oath you can be prosecuted for perjury.

On another occasion in 2006 the PD says he committed 3 offenses -- violating the rules of "courtesy and respect," "Off duty/secondary employment," and "unlawful compensation."  For those violations he was suspended.

In 2007 Cosner was accused of offensive conduct/language.  For some reason the allegation seems to still be "open" in that case.

And in 2011 Cosner was written up for sleeping on duty.

As for the remaining 7 cases ...Cosner was exonerated by Internal Affairs.

Cosner's record could create problems for prosecutors if the DUI case goes to trial.

Bree Walker
, a famous 80s news anchor and reporter ... was busted for DUI in Orange County, CA -- and her poor dog was also taken into custody ... TMZ has learned.

Anaheim police arrested Walker around 12:30 AM Wednesday after she was initially pulled over for running a red light.

Police smelled booze ... put her through a field sobriety test -- which they say she failed -- and 61-year-old Walker was taken to jail.

Law enforcement sources tell us Walker's pit bull Petey was in the car with her, but since Bree lives in L.A. County ... no one was available to pickup the dog. We're told animal control took custody of Petey.

Walker -- who was once married to famed sportscaster Jim Lampley -- was booked for misdemeanor DUI, and released a few hours later ... aka once she sobered up.

Unclear at this point if she sprung Petey yet.

Walker worked local news in New York, L.A., and San Diego -- and did a stint in rehab for booze a few years ago.

Born with a congenital condition called syndactylism -- a fusing of fingers and/or toes -- Walker was also a famous advocate for the disabled.
