Justin Bieber will go to trial on May 5 to face charges that he was driving under the influence, resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver's license when police stopped him in Miami Beach on Jan. 23.

Bieber, 20, has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested after a 4:09 a.m. traffic stop during which Bieber cursed repeatedly at a police officer and acknowledged smoking marijuana, drinking and taking an unknown prescription medication, according to police. A toxicology report showed that Bieber tested positive for marijuana and Xanax. His alcohol breath tests were under the legal limit, even for an underage driver.

The original March trial was postponed while attorneys for news organizations argued for access to 10 hours of Bieber's arrest videos, including one of the singer giving a urine sample for a drug test.
