Justin Bieber has no trouble talking to the police. After his arrest earlier today, Justin’s already told the Miami Beach Police Department he was smoking weed, popping pills, and drinking beer before hopping in a car for some light drag racing. Now, he’s fessed up about who gave him the pills: his mom, Pattie Mallette.
In the latest TMZ bulletin, unidentified law enforcement sources say Bieber told cops he was under the influence of pot, alcohol, and prescription medication when they arrested him. Those prescription drugs, however, may not be a prescription under Justin’s name. He wasn’t sure what specific type of anti-anxiety medication he was taking because Pattie was the one playing pharmacist.
To be fair, we’d trust our mom to give us meds too. We just probably wouldn’t get behind a yellow Lamborghini, drink alcohol, and/or smoke weed afterwards.
If the Biebs does indeed have a valid prescription for the meds, than he’s in the clear but hardly out of the woods. Justin’s also been charged with driving with an expired license, resisting arrest without violence, and DUI (there’s still the alcohol and marijuana to address). He’s already got an ace lawyer on the case, however: attorney to the stars Roy Black.
Pattie hasn’t publicly discussed her potential role in the situation. Her Twitter account remains quiet as of publishing and TMZ’s attempts to reach her went nowhere. Maybe she’s talking to Justin’s dad, Jeremy, who was reportedly at the scene when Justin was arrested.
