Justin Bieber is said to have jetted back to Los Angeles after he was released from jail last night, with the singer allegedly needing to "charter a private plane" to attend a prior commitment in California.
Biebs appeared in court by video link after he was arrested for DUI and drag racing in Miami Beach and after the singer's smiling mugshot was released, he was then seen jumping on top of a black SUV to wave to fans as he left the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Centre before making his way to the airport.
A source told Radar Online that the 19-year-old star had a prior commitment in California that he needed to attend, so hopped onto a private plane.

The website had previously explained that Biebs was heard "mumbling to himself and giggling" in the jail which the site's source attributed to him still being "under the influence," before he then allegedly "cried his eyes out" after he returned to his cell after the video link, People reports.
