Justin Bieber has reportedly been released from custody after his private plane was detained and searched by U.S. customs agents Friday afternoon at an airport in New Jersey.
According ABC News sources, the plane was ordered held on the tarmac at Teterboro Airport after U.S. customs agents detected a strong odour of suspected marijuana on the aircraft.
According to reports, the singer departed the plane and was taken to the airport’s customs terminal to be interviewed.
Authorities are believed to have released Bieber from custody when nothing suspect was found on the plane, U.S. media outlets reported Friday evening.
Bieber had landed in New Jersey just before 3 p.m. after flying from Toronto to attend Sunday’s Super Bowl festivities.
The incident comes just two days after Bieber was in Toronto to face charges in connection with an alleged assault on a limo driver last December.
In an unrelated incident, the 19-year-old singing sensation was arrested last week in Miami and charged with driving under the influence, resisting police without violence and driving an expired licence. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
