Justin Bieber has been reportedly enjoying a break in Panama after being charged in Florida last Thursday for drunk driving and resisting arrest. According to reports, Bieber was charged with DUI, driving without a license and resisting arrest. And, according to reports, the police report stated that Bieber had “bloodshot eyes” and “reeked of alcohol.” 

But, the Florida incident seems to be in the star's rear-view mirror as he has been reportedly vacationing with his friends in Panama along with rumored girlfriend, Chantel Jeffries, who was in the car with him at the time of his arrest. 

According to reports, Bieber and his friends were staying at the Nitro City hotel, an action-sports resort, located on the beach of Punta Chame. Sources at the hotel told People, that singer Usher had also joined Bieber and his friends. They departed the hotel late Sunday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the case involving Bieber's egg-throwing incident in Los Angeles will reach the Los Angeles district attorney for a decision, as detectives have probed the case and scrutinized the security video that they had seized from Bieber’s California mansion. Reportedly, a prosecutor will soon decide whether the singer will face a felony charge in Los Angeles.

“We will have a dialogue with the district attorney and determine, based on what we have, when we should bring the case over," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt. David Thompson told CNN on Friday. “We will then take the case to the D.A. It will be up to them to file charges and what charges at that time.”

And, according to reports, the Miami prosecutor has said that no dates have been given as yet in Bieber’s DUI case. The details provided to CNN on Saturday, by the head of the car rental company that owns the Lamborghini that Bieber was driving, stated that he did not exceed 55 mph speed in the 15 minutes before the stop.

Reportedly, the GPS information could add as a positive in the singer’s defense.
