Justin Bieber might have been boozing the day Miami cops busted him for allegedly drag racing in Miami, and he’s finally copping to it.

Bieber made the confession to Complex — which sees him as a sort of PR Houdini, who keeps walking away clean after his screw-ups. JB initially denied speeding or drag racing, and blamed the arrest on a cop looking for his 15 minutes.

Justin, who was 19 at the time, tells the mag, “I wasn’t drinking. I blew the thing and I had 0.01” and then goes back on his word saying, “I might have had a beer earlier in the day or something.”

He ended up striking a plea deal for resisting an officer without violence and careless driving — and got no jail time. Instead, he paid $50k to a kids’ charity, and attended 12 of hours anger management.

Bieber also had an excuse for that peeing in the mop bucket debacle. He says a club employee told him to go there since it was closer to the exit than the real bathroom.
