Justin Bieber makes bond (video), leaves jail in caravan

A $2,500 bond didn't keep Justin Bieber in the Miami Dade County Jail for long as was witnessed by NBC6 News on Jan. 23, when filming of the 19-year-old coverage showed the teen celebrity exiting jail premises behind the mask of a black hooded top, jumping on top of a black Cadillac Escalade SUV before entering it.

Traveling East bound, Bieber's entourage of SUVs were captured by Chopper 6 cameras weaving through South Florida following his release. And commentary from the news site revealed that a Georgia suspended license resulted in the pop culture phenomena being unable to immediately post bond and leave the Miami-Dade jail after the required 12-hour delay that normally follows a DUI arrest.

Instead, Judge P. Farina had to determine if there were any other charges pending from Georgia that would influence whether Bieber would be allowed to leave after a bond hearing on Thursday or not. Georgia authorities said they had no holds on the young celebrity, so he was released after posting bond.

Only three misdemeanor counts were leveled against Justin Bieber resulting from his illegal activities involving the use of alcohol, speeding and resisting police arrest in Miami.

In the Justin Bieber court video provided by NBC6, Judge Farina breaks down the bond amounts this way:

$1,000 for arresting arrest, without violence, $1,000 for the DUI, and $500 for the expired driver's license (from Georgia)," he said.

Bieber's attorney thanked the judge for hearing their case "right away" and for "your honor's courtesy," but the image of Justin as this all occurred showed the young man seemed less appreciative than he could have been for the speed in which he was released from jail.
