Justin Bieber will be arraigned next month in Miami, following his arrest last week on a charge of drunken driving when he was caught drag racing in a rented Lamborghini, according to court records published Tuesday.

Bieber, 19, will be arraigned on Feb. 14 on the driving under the influence charge, as well as charges of driving on an expired license and resisting arrest without violence.

The pop star is not expected to appear at the Valentine’s Day arraignment.

It was the first arrest for the popular Canadian singer, whose life offstage has taken a tumultuous turn in the last year, with problems ranging from scuffling with paparazzi in London to a felony investigation into whether he pelted a neighbor’s house with eggs in his gated community near Los Angeles.

If convicted of the charges in Miami, Bieber could face jail time of up to six months, although experts say he will likely get off with a lighter sentence for his first offense.
