As if getting locked up could be even worse, RadarOnline.com has learned that the release of some inmates at Turner Guilford-Knight Corrections Facility was delayed on Thursday due to Justin Bieber's VIP treatment. Some inmates complained of a delay of up to two hours, RadarOnline.com can reveal, as officials locked down the facility so Bieber could get out.
"There's always a lockdown when you have to move a high-profile inmate," Miami-Dade Corrections Community Affairs Manager Janelle Hall confirmed to RadarOnline.com exclusively. "That's just our standard procedure."
As to claims other inmates were delayed in getting released, she said, "I can't say that one way or the other."
This shocking news comes on the heels of new reports that four Miami police officers have been placed on leave as a result of an investigation into their special treatment of Bieber. The officers allegedly gave Bieber an unauthorized police escort from the Opa-Locka Airport to a Miami strip club, where he splurged $75,000 on the dancers.
In addition, the ACLU spoke out exclusively to RadarOnline.com Thursday with concerns that Canadian citizen Bieber is receiving unfair treatment from U.S. immigration officials due to his celebrity status.
Bieber is currently out on $2,500 bail in his DUI drag racing case, for which he was arrested in Miami early Thursday morning. He is also facing a felony vandalism investigation in Los Angeles over the alleged egging attack on his neighbor's home, as well as a lawsuit from a Miami photographer who claims Bieber's bodyguard roughed him up. Bieber missed a scheduled deposition in that case on Thursday.
