During the arraignment, prosecutors are expected to formally file charges of driving with an expired licence, driving under the influence and resisting arrest.

The singer is also expected to enter a plea, but this may be done by his lawyer.

Bieber was arrested in Miami last week after police saw two cars racing through the streets at double the speed limit.

Following his arrest, the singer appeared in court via video link before his bail was set at 2,500 US dollars (£1,500).

The 19-year-old has had a number of brushes with the law in recent months.

Earlier this month his home in California was raided by police following claims he pelted his neighbours home with eggs.

After a search of the property, Bieber's friend Lil Za was taken into custody on suspicion of narcotics possession.

He was subsequently released.

Bieber's career began in 2007 after YouTube videos of him singing in competitions went viral.
