Justin Bieber and his entourage filled their private plane with so much marijuana smoke during a flight last week that the pilots had to don oxygen masks, according to a police report obtained by NBC News.

The reportedly hot-boxed flight came Friday as Bieber, his father and 10 friends were on their way to the Super Bowl in a leased Gulfstream IV. The plane was met by federal authorities when it landed at a small New Jersey airport. “The captain of the flight stated that he warned the passengers, including Bieber, on several occasions to stop smoking marijuana,” the official report of the incident reads, according to NBC. “The captain also stated he needed to request that the passengers stop their harassing behavior toward the flight attendant and after several warnings asked the flight attendant to stay with him near the cockpit to avoid any further abuse.”

The report goes on to describe how one flight attendant claimed that Bieber and his father were verbally abusive during the trip.

The plane was met by DEA and Customs and Border Protection agents and the police when it landed. The cabin still smelled like marijuana when police entered it, NBC reports. When questioned, Bieber admitted to smoking weed and drinking alcohol, the report says. No marijuana was found and none of the members of the flight crew were willing to press charges against the pop star, so the group was allowed to leave.

Bieber has run into legal trouble several other times in recent weeks. In late January, he was arrested for allegedly drunk driving and drag racing in Miami, and later that month he was arrested in Toronto for alleged assault on a limo driver — an incident that took place in late December.

I'm going to bet it will be a little more difficult for young Mr Bieber to charter a plane next time.  Might even have to start flying coach to make all his court appointments.

@cholvenstot I dunno.... There will always be a pilot and/or plane owner who wants to make money, and Bieber is obviously not a penny pincher.

my name is cassie and what I think about wat Justin bieber did was wrong but wen he smoke weed on the plane like hot boxed it he should have opened the window before he landed so the smell of weed wouldent get the police wouldent have gotten there attention

@cassiemaguire1  Honey. The Windows on a plane don't open. The police would have been able to tell he had been smoking, regardless of the smell. If the pilots had to don oxygen masks, that means it was bad enough they were worried about getting second hand high. Do you know what that means? If they had gotten high, the plane would have probably crashed because they wouldn't have been able to control it.


Now, perhaps you are a fan of the Beibmeister, and that's your choice. But there is no avoiding that his behaviour has been reckless, dangerous to those around him, and most importantly, illegal. 


He's not a United States Citizen. Any other average person would have been deported for these offenses. Just because he is a celebrity does not mean he is above the law -- especially when he's endangering other people. The boy either needs to get deported or find some help before -- and trust me when I say this is almost inevitable -- he causes someone's death.

@nico707 As a marijuana expert that splits time between the Bay Area, Humboldt, and Trinity counties, yes, people can get a contact high from being in a hotboxed room/car/(and I guess) plane. An experienced smoker would not feel the effects, but a non smoker can get a low-to-moderate buzz going if stuck in a hotbox for hours on end, which is what happened with the pilots. In my above post I say they probably weren't getting an actual contact high and were most likely just overreacting, but still, it's possible.

@JGKaye @cassiemaguire1They would not have crashed due to a second hand contact high. 70% of the marijuana smoke is absorbed when the smoker breathes. Not to mention that planes fly on auto pilot and pilots only 1)take off, 2) land, 3) take control if auto pilot fails. Granted they did have to land the plane, but marijuana does not inhibit motor skills like alcohol does. 

The pilots probably just don't like the smell of smoke. I have family that can't handle the smell of smoke of any kind because they being sneezing and coughing. I would understand needing to wear a mask in that instance, but most likely the pilots were just overreacting to someone smoking marijuana. I am *NOT* a fan of Justin Bieber, and was critical of him when he was arrested recently, but if they were smoking as much as the article makes it seem, the DEA would have found paraphernalia (pipes/bongs/etc), a bunch of joint/blunt remains or a bunch of stems/bits of weed.

@JGKaye @cassiemaguire1  LOL! Please do your research, you dont get 2nd hand high from weed, it might get in your system but you won't feel high and even if they did they wouldnt crash the plane. You obviously must think a weed high is like alcohol, its not, only thing it does is make you more relaxed (relieve stress), hungry and think more deeply, dont see how that would cause someone who's been flying for years to crash.

@cassiemaguire1 I totally agree, Biebs should have opened the window prior to descent, at 30,000 feet.  All of that pot smoke would have been sucked out of that plane in seconds... along with everything else.

@cassiemaguire1  Is that a serious remark? Opening a window of a flying airplane? Only if he wants to have have no oxygen and freeze to death, that is a very good idea!

Okay. So I'm a Canadian. My son is doing a graduate degree in the US and wants to immigrate there. People are telling him that Bieber has ruined it for Canadians who want to immigrate. Let's not let it be so. The US must stop tolerating Bieber's nonsense. Get him out of there. These pilots are remarkable. I don't think many of us would have blamed them if they landed in a field somewhere and dumped these fools due to dangerous and illegal activity. Bieber is on a fast decline. His father is an idiot. It's only a matter of time. We can only watch.

@Phoebe1950  Don't take it personally..it is just a typical teenager new to money acting his age,with an irresponsible dad.

People are people,does not matter what your place of birth is.

Beiber and his daddy need parental guidance. Please Canada, take your naughty little spawns of a nuisance back to your land and keep them in a locked cage there.

Isn't it a crime to smoke on a plane? Maybe they can at least take away his rights to fly?

Any parent who allows their underaged child to drink alcohol and smoke pot is totally irresponsible. Any parent who allows a kid to needlessly be abusive to employees is screwed up. Jeremy Bieber is nothing but a wannabe black rapper, just like his son. This guy is 38 years old and dresses/acts like a punk in his teens, with tats all over, earrings, wife beater, etc. He apparently has read Dina Lohan's Book of Child Rearing, because instead of acting like a responsible, mature adult, he is Justin's drug buddy and best friend. I suspect he is on Justin's payroll and living off of his son's money. Not surprising, considering he never married Justin's mother and appears to be nothing but a white trash freeloader and enabler to his son's bad behavior. What a horrible role model; no wonder Justin is so messed up. It appears Daddy Biebs paid off the flight crew so they wouldn't press charges against them. He is a total tool just like his son, and I wish the two of them would be shipped back to Canada. We've already got Lohan and her terrible parents; we don't need any more destructive, rich, self-entitled, spoiled brat celebrities in the US.
