Teen pop star Justin Bieber remains in Panama just three days after his turbulent off-stage life landed him in a Florida jail. He is reportedly staying at the Nitrocity resort in Punta Chame. Bieber was arrested on January 23rd for drunk driving after he was allegedly drag racing on a Miami Beach street. A judge set bail at $2,500 dollars and released the "Boyfriend" singer. If convicted, the 19-year-old could face six months in jail, although experts say he will likely get off with a lighter sentence. Bieber's arrest is his most serious run-in with the law during a year in which his problems have ranged from allegations of speeding through his gated community near Los Angeles to a felony investigation into whether he pelted a neighbor's house with eggs.
