Justin Bieber's lawyers filed legal documents in Florida late Friday in an attempt to block the release of images showing Justin in policy custody. Bieber's legal team wants to prevent images that show the singer in, "various states of undress," and which show, "intimate personal parts of the defendant's body."
The court request comes after footage leaked this week of the Canadian pop star being strip searched by police in a Miami Beach jail following his Jan. 23 arrest, according to Hollywood.com on Feb. 8.
The documents allege the release of the jail video showing 19-year-old Justin Bieber's strip search is a violation of the law, and it leaked before the the embattled singer's lawyers were even made aware of its existence.
The Daily News reports that the three and a half minute video emerged after Miami Beach Police released toxicology results showing Bieber had marijuana and prescription drugs in his system at the time of his arrest.
In the video, Bieber looks defiant and bratty, strutting around the precinct with his hoodie on and his arms crossed. Eventually a booking officer yanks Justin's sagging shorts up that were hanging off his rear.
Police claim Justin was "talkative" and "cocky", admitting he used pot, alcohol and prescription medication before getting behind the wheel of his loaner Lamborghini.
Bieber reportedly dropped multiple F-bombs aimed at the arresting officers. A supplemental police report said he "reeked of marijuana" while sitting in a patrol car.
"Yeah, we were smoking all night at the studio," he allegedly confessed, that according to the DUI Test Report obtained by the News.
Bieber was charged with DUI, driving on a suspended license and resisting arrest without violence. His next court appearance is slated for Feb. 14.
Justin is still waiting to hear if he'll be charged with more serious felony vandalism charges related to his alleged egging of his Calabasas neighbor's mansion last month.
Word on whether California prosecutors will move ahead with that case should come down this week.
