Remaining police video clips of Justin Bieber after his January arrest will be made public with sensitive portions blacked out to protect the singer’s privacy, a judge ruled Tuesday.
Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield said two of the five unreleased video clips depict the singer’s genitalia during a urine test for drugs at the Miami Beach Police Department. Altfield agreed with lawyers for Bieber that the video’s airing would be an invasion of privacy.
Attorneys for The Associated Press and other news outlets had previously suggested any sensitive portions be blacked out and the rest released under Florida’s open records laws. Much of the footage was released last week, some of them showing Bieber walking unsteadily during a sobriety test.
