Justin Bieber has a Valentine's Day date with a South Florida judge on charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license.

A Miami-Dade County judge on Tuesday set a Feb. 14 arraignment date for the 19-year-old pop star. In an arraignment, prosecutors formally file charges and a plea is entered, although a defendant's lawyer can enter the plea in writing. Bieber might not be required to attend.

Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff were arrested last week in Miami Beach during what police described as an illegal street drag race between a Lamborghini and a Ferrari. Neither has been charged with drag racing.

Police say Bieber admitted to smoking marijuana, drinking and taking a prescription medication.

In more Bieber news, prosecutors in Los Angeles have asked for further investigation into accusations that Bieber egged his neighbor's house in Calabasas, Calif., causing $20,000 in damage, a spokeswoman for the L.A. County district attorney's office said Tuesday.

Authorities have been investigating allegations Bieber threw eggs at his neighbor's home in the 25000 block of Prado del Grandioso, causing the damage, this month.
