WASHINGTON - Justin Bieber will plead guilty to lesser charges following his arrest for driving under the influence in Miami last January, a local newspaper reported yesterday.


The Canadian pop singer will agree to attend an anger management class and make a 50,000 dollar charitable contribution, the Miami Herald said, quoting sources.


Bieber was arrested after an alleged drag racing incident, and police say he admitted to having smoked marijuana and taken the prescription drug Xanax.

In a hearing Wednesday, prosecutors are expected to drop the DUI charge. In exchange, Bieber's lawyers will accept a guilty plea for careless driving and resisting arrest without violence, the paper said.

Bieber is not expected to attend the court session. As part of the deal he will have to attend a 12-hour anger management course.

The 20-year-old drove a Lamborghini in the alleged race with his friend Khalil Sharieff and was reported to have used obscene words during his arrest.

The troubled pop star has had several run ins with the law of late.

In July he was sentenced in Los Angeles to two years' probation for egg-bombing his neighbors' home.

Bieber was also ordered to perform community service, join an anger management program, and pay the owners of the vandalized home more than $80,000 in repairs.

Among his numerous other recent run-ins with the law, Bieber has a hearing pending in Canada into accusations he assaulted a limousine driver last year.
