Bieber lawyers seek trial delay

Justin Bieber is seeking a delay in his trial, currently scheduled to begin next month, on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired licence.

The 20-year-old pop singer's lawyers filed a motion yesterday saying they need more time to prepare their case.

Bieber's trial is currently set for May 5 in Miami, Florida.

The motion says prosecutors do not oppose a delay. A scheduling hearing is set for tomorrow.

Bieber was arrested on January 23 in Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal street drag race. He was not charged with drag racing.

Alcohol breath tests found Bieber's level below the 0.02 limit for under-age drivers.

Urine tests showed the presence of marijuana and an anti-anxiety drug in his system.
