MIAMI  — A South Florida judge has ordered the release of remaining police video of Justin Bieber after his January arrest with sensitive portions blacked out to protect his privacy.

Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield said today that two of the five video clips depict the singer’s genitalia during a urine test for drugs. Altfield agreed with lawyers for Bieber, who turned 20 Saturday, that the video’s airing would be an invasion of privacy that outweighed the public’s right to know.

Attorneys for The Associated Press and other news outlets had previously suggested any sensitive portions be blacked out.

Bieber has pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. Police video released last week showed Bieber walking unsteadily during sobriety tests.
