What's Justin Bieber's punishment for his DUI arrest back in January? Anger management classes, apparently. The singer pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and careless driving, rather than to the initial DUI charge. In exchange, he'll sit through 12 hours of anger management classes, donate $50,000 to a children's charity, and meet with people whose lives were affected by drunk driving, the Guardian and ABC News report. Oh, and "the Immigration and Naturalization Service will consider this conviction in any deportation decision," the agreement states. The state attorney called Bieber's behavior "some rash, juvenile-type conduct" and said (somewhat optimistically, in our opinion) that the consequences "should provide a pathway toward adult responsibility."
