The March 3 date for the three misdemeanours was set yesterday. Bieber’s lawyers have filed a written plea of not guilty. Initial trial dates are often delayed.
The 19-year-old was arrested on January 23 in Miami Beach after what police called an illegal drag race between two exotic sports cars driven by Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff.
Sharieff was also arrested on a drunk under the influence charge.
Breath tests showed Bieber’s blood alcohol content below the .02 threshold for underage drivers.
Police say a test detected marijuana and Xanax in his system.
