Justin Bieber has dodged another massive legal headache after working out a plea deal with prosecutors in his Florida DUI case, according to reports.

The “Baby” singer was arrested after Miami Beach police officers allegedly caught him drag racing with a pal in January.

Bieber was taken into custody and charged with resisting arrest and a DUI, but it appears he won’t be facing trial anymore.

A source tells Us Weekly magazine that the charges against him will be dropped if he completes an anger management course.

It has been a lucky week for the 20-year-old, who learned on Thursday that a felony cellphone stealing charge against him had been passed to Los Angeles’ City Attorney officials following an investigation into the May incident.

Bieber was accused of taking a cellphone from the handbag of a fan’s mother after he caught her taking pictures of him at an arcade in Sherman Oaks, California.

The woman filed a police report but no witness actually spotted Bieber grabbing her phone.

City Attorney officials will now determine if there’s enough evidence to file a misdemeanor charge against the star.
