Justin’s best friend Khalil Sharieff, who was arrested at the same time when they allegedly drag raced, is expected to receive a similar plea deal.
Miami police arrested Justin & Khalil in January for racing down Pine Island Drive, which had been blocked off by jb’s security team, and JB was said to have unleashed a string of expletives when stopped by officers.
Police claimed Justin admitted smoking marijuana and taking prescription medication, with a urine sample testing positive for the drug and anxiety pills Xanax.
However, his blood-alcohol levels were well below the legal limit and he didn’t appear intoxicated in police surveillance videos.
