Justin Bieber gets March trial date

Justin Bieber has been given a trial date in Miami for his recent arrest on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an invalid license.

A Miami-Dade County judge has set the trial for the three charges for March 3, although initial trial dates are often delayed. Justin's attorneys have already filed a written plea of not guilty.

The 19-year-old pop star was arrested January 23 in Miami Beach after what police called an illegal drag race between two sports cars driven by Justin and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff, who was also arrested on a DUI charge.

Breath tests showed Justin's blood alcohol content below the .02 threshold for underage drivers, but police say a toxicology test detected the presence of marijuana and Xanax in his system.
