Police photos reveal Canadian Bieber’s tattoos
(03-05 14:01)

Remaining police video clips of Canadian singer Justin Bieber (pictured showing a tattoo titled Believe, an album title) after his January arrest will be made public with sensitive portions blacked out to protect privacy, a US judge in the US state of Florida ruled Tuesday.
Bieber has pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. He and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested early on January 23 during what police called an illegal street drag race between a Lamborghini and a Ferrari. Neither has been charged with drag racing, AP reports.
Evidence released previously showed that a breath test found Bieber's blood-alcohol level below the .02 threshold considered intoxicated for underage drivers. The urine test found the presence of the active ingredient in marijuana and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax. Bieber told officers he had been smoking marijuana before his arrest, according to police reports.
A trial date has not been set.
Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield said two of the five unreleased video clips depict the singer's genitalia during a urine test for drugs at the Miami Beach Police Department. Altfield agreed with lawyers for Bieber, who turned 20 on Saturday, that the video's airing would be an invasion of privacy that outweighed the public's right to know.
Separately, the Miami Beach Police Department made public a new set of 18 photos taken shortly after Bieber's arrest, mainly close-ups of his many tattoos -- a praying Jesus, a grinning joker's face accompanied by the word “love,'' a Psalms quotation, and more -- and one full-length picture of the singer.
Attorneys for The Associated Press and other news outlets had previously suggested any sensitive portions be blacked out and the rest released under Florida's liberal open records laws. Much of the footage was released last week, some of it showing Bieber walking unsteadily during a sobriety test.
