Justin Bieber remains under a lot of heat and will clearly have to be more careful with himself than ever before as the police keep a close eye on his activities. In the latest episode in the unfolding of his now tense relations with the U.S. Department of Justice, Bieber's Super Bowl bound jet was searched for drugs, reported E! Online on Jan. 31, 2014. A couple of days after being hit with an assault charge in Toronto, a jet carrying Bieber and a group which reportedly included his dad, was searched in New Jersey as the group headed for Super Bowl XLVIII pre-parties.
When the jet arrived at Teterboro Airport it was searched by authorities with drug-sniffing dogs due to suspicion that there was marijuana onboard. However, the search could be considered routine because the jet was crossing an international border en route from Canada. Bieber and the other passengers were held for a brief time and questioned by customs officials. There were no drugs or other contraband found.
According to Fox News officials suspected Bieber's plane was carrying marijuana. However, the sniffer dogs didn't come up with anything. U.S. Customs officials are said to have detected a strong odor of pot prior to holding Bieber for several hours. Aside from the assault charge in Toronto, Bieber is facing a driving under the influence case in Miami and he remains under investigation for felony vandalism in California.
Life has been getting rough for Bieber lately. It should be remembered that Bieber deserves a fair day in court if any charges against him are upheld, and with too much negative press coverage of his activities this could be hard for him to get. It remains fishy that he has been hit with so many charges and yet he actually appears to be not really guilty of anything much, if anything at all. He needs his family, friends, fans and a good lawyer by his side now more than ever.
