A judge will review Justin Bieber arrest video

A judge said Thursday he will review police video made shortly after Justin Bieber’s recent Miami Beach arrest to determine if portions should be withheld from the public, particularly clips of the singer urinating into a cup as part of a drug test.

Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield said after a hearing he will review some of the roughly 10 hours of police video taken after Bieber’s Jan. 23 arrest.

The Associated Press, The Miami Herald, and other media are seeking release of the video, arguing there is no exemption in Florida’s open records law allowing it to be kept under wraps.

‘‘The right of privacy cannot trump the right of access to public records,’’ said Deanna Shullman, the attorney for the AP and several media outlets. ‘‘My clients have no interest in showing Mr. Bieber’s private parts. You have to redact that and release the rest.’’

Still, Shullman and Scott Ponce, who represents the Herald and Miami’s CBS affiliate, agreed with Altfield’s plan.

Bieber attorney Howard Srebnick said he found it ‘‘insulting’’ that the videos could be released perhaps with only Bieber’s nether regions censored, saying even that was a violation of privacy.
