Everyone on the Internet yesterday was subjected to leaked video surveillance of Justin Bieber being patted down by police while in custody after his arrest last month for DUI, driving without a license and resisting arrest.

Turns out Bieber's lawyers are (completely justifiably) trying to keep further footage—and semi clad images—taken following his arrest from being released.

According to Reuters, a motion was filed on Friday by the troubled popstar's Miami lawyers, Black, Srebnick, Kornspan & Stumpf after they learned that the state attorney's office had filed public records requests for footage.

"While in custody at the Miami Beach police station the defendant was captured on videotape in various states of undress which show intimate personal parts of the defendant's body," the motion reads.

It also asserts that the release of the footage and images is in defiance with the Florida constitution and state law.

The "Beauty and the Beat" singer has endured an impressively bad past couple weeks which included a surrender to Toronto police for assault charges amongst other legal issues.
