Justin Bieber is seeking a delay in his trial, scheduled to begin next month, on Florida charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license.
The 20-year-old pop singer’s lawyers filed a motion Monday saying they need more time to prepare their case. Bieber’s trial is set for May 5 in Miami.
The motion says prosecutors do not oppose a delay. A scheduling hearing is set for today.
Bieber was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal street drag race. He wasn’t charged with drag racing.
