The pop star and his entourage had just arrived at Brisbane International Airport when they were inspected for drug offenses.
Justin Bieber is back on unfavorable headlines after a report broke that the singer insulted a custom officer in Australian airport. The "All That Matters" singer reportedly was detained by the Australian Federal Police but was released without charge after two hours.
Bieber had just arrived in Brisbane as part of his Believe tour. According to Sydney Daily Telegraph, Bieber and his entourage were under suspicion of drug offenses after two dogs sniffed the group's luggage and successfully detected a cannabis in one of his crew members. The unnamed member was ordered to appear in court to face charges of importing drugs into the country.
A female officer ordered the Bieber to remove his hat and sunglasses during an inspection but he allegedly refused. The 19-year-old was said to receive a verbal warning after talking to the female officer.
Bieber's stay Down Under has not exactly been peaceful. He was criticized for appearing late at his concerts and was caught spray-painting a wall on the grounds of his hotel. Mayor of Gold Coast Tom Tait said the council will be ordering the hotel to remove the graffiti. One of Bieber's bodyguards was also accused of attacking a paparazzo's car late last month.
