Air­port es­cort for Biebs leads to trou­ble for po­lice

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

OPA-LOCKA, Fla. - An of­fi­cial says three Florida po­lice of­fi­cers have been sus­pended for giv­ing Justin Bieber an unau­tho­rized es­cort from the air­port. Opa-locka As­sis­tant City Man­ager David Chiver­ton said Fri­day the of­fi­cers were sus­pended with pay pend­ing the out­come of an in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Po­lice es­corts from the Opa-locka Ex­ec­u­tive Air­port are not un­com­mon, but they must fol­low pro­ce­dure. Chiver­ton says the one that ac­com­pa­nied Bieber on Mon­day had not been au­tho­rized. Ac­cord­ing to Chiver­ton, investigators are still try­ing to get more in­for­ma­tion from the air­port and the of­fi­cers about where po­lice es­corted Bieber. Bieber was free on bail Fri­day af­ter an ar­rest on charges of DUI, driv­ing with an ex­pired li­cense and re­sist­ing ar­rest. Mi­ami Beach po­lice say Bieber smelled of al­co­hol when he was stopped af­ter drag-rac­ing down a res­i­den­tial street early Thurs­day.
