According to a report from ABC News on Jan. 24, three police officers have been suspended for giving the 19-year-old Justin Bieber an unauthorized police escort from a Florida airport on Monday.

ABC News reports that when Bieber's plane landed in Florida on Monday three police officers allegedly gave him an escort from the airport to his destination, and it landed them in hot water. Officials say that escorts are not uncommon, but the officers failed to get approval before escorting Bieber. Reports indicate that the officers have been placed on paid suspension until the investigation is complete.

Bieber was arrested on Thursday for reportedly driving under the influence (DUI), having an expired license, and resisting arrest. Officials say that while Bieber's breath test showed that he was under the legal limit, he blew over a 0.02, which is over the limit for someone who is under the age of 21.
