MUGGING FOR THE CAMERA: Justin Bieber’s mugshot from his January arrest.

MIAMI (AP) — Video of Justin Bieber made at a South Florida police station after his January arrest shows him walking unsteadily during a sobriety test.

Miami-Dade County prosecutors released about 10 hours of video Wednesday, only a few moments of which depicted Beiber. In one clip, Beiber wavers as he tries to walk heel to toe, then stumbles slightly as he turns and appears to have his arms out for balance.

The video was sought by The Associated Press and other media organizations under Florida’s public records law.

Attorneys for the 19-year-old singer persuaded a judge to withhold four clips depicting Bieber urinating in a cup for a drug test.

Bieber has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence, resisting arrest and invalid-license charges following his Jan. 23 arrest.

More Bieber jail video may stay under wraps

Bieber’s wobbly walk during a South Florida sobriety test isn’t the only thing police video captured after his January arrest on driving under the influence and other charges. But it’s unclear if the remaining clips will be released.

Bieber’s attorneys raised no objections to the roughly 10 hours of video released Wednesday following public records requests by The Associated Press and other news organizations. They have argued to a judge that police video of the 19-year-old pop singer urinating into a cup for a drug test invades his privacy.

Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield plans to review the withheld video privately and have a hearing next week on whether any portions will be released.
