Cops: Pot Found On Justin Bieber’s Tour Bus At Canadian Border
By Christy Strawser
DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Perhaps Justin Bieber said it best on his Twitter account early Tuesday morning, where he wrote: “I’m a lucky guy.”
And the pop star isn’t just lucky because he makes tween girls around the world swoon.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Detroit confirmed Tuesday morning both marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia were found on Bieber’s tour bus when it was stopped at the Canadian border Sunday — prior to his sold-out show at Joe Louis Arena.
Bieber, 19, was not on board, said Ken Hammond, a U.S. Customs spokesman, and no one was arrested. But the bus driver was issued a civil infraction ticket.
Why was the bus stopped?
“It was a commercial touring bus, they have to undergo immigration and customs checks,” Hammond said, adding the check is to make sure there aren’t any commercial items being illegally smuggled across the border.
Hammond wouldn’t divulge how much pot was on board or what form the paraphernalia took.
I’m a lucky guy. #MyBeliebers

Bieber went from squeaky clean boy star to troubled paparazzi target in recent months, with frequent rants, underage bar antics, driving infractions, neighborhood complaints and increasingly bizarre public behavior.
Most recently, he had to issue an apology to Bill Clinton after he was taped cursing at a photo of the former president at a New York restaurant and spraying it with cleaning fluid. He also reportedly urinated in a mop bucket in the restaurant’s kitchen.
