A trial date has been set for Justin Bieber in Miami for his recent arrest on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an invalid license.

A Miami-Dade County judge set trial for the three misdemeanors for March 3. Bieber's attorneys have already filed a written plea of not guilty. Initial trial dates are often delayed.

The 19-year-old pop star was arrested Jan. 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 DUI charge.

Breath tests showed Bieber's blood alcohol content below the 0.02 threshold for underage drivers. But police say a toxicology test detected the presence of marijuana and Xanax in his system.
