JUSTIN BIEBER has reportedly cut a plea deal in his Miami DUI case in which he'll take a 12-hour anger management class and donate $50,000 to charity in return for having the charge dropped. Bieber was never charged with drag racing, but he dropped multiple F-bombs on cops during the stop, had an expired Georgia license and appeared to be intoxicated and tests showed Bieber had marijuana and Xanax in his system. Bieber is already on probation after pleading no contest last month to misdemeanor vandalism in California for egging his neighbor's house. Had he gone to trial and lost, it could've meant jail time for him.

Joshua's 19-year-old brother Nicholas arrived to check on him. A breath test confirmed officers' suspicions that he was also under the influence and he was charged with his second DUI in two weeks. But, that's not the end of the story. While this was going on, their father, Brian Woodward, got behind the wheel of Nicholas' truck and drove closer to the scene.
