TETERBORO, N.J.(CBSNewYork) — The drama would not stop for Justin Bieber on Friday.
The pop star’s plane was held at Teterboro Airport while he was questioned by customs agents, CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported.
It was Bieber’s third run-in with authorities in the past week. Customs agents and other officers boarded his chartered plane and smelled what they believed was marijuana.
The singer was questioned while authorities searched the cabin for drugs. The investigation dragged on for most Friday afternoon and evening but authorities did not find anything.
Fans of the troubled pop-star braved the cold for five hours on Friday night.
“I haven’t seen him yet but I hope I do,” Bella Plasencia said.
No one caught a glimpse of Bieber after investigators cleared him and his entourage of any wrong doing.
The pop-star faces numerous other troubles; earlier this week he was booked on assault charges in Canada. Last week, he was allegedly street racing in Miami Beach under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, and xanax.
He is also under investigation for vandalism in California.
The native of Canada is in the U.S. on a temporary work visa that could be revoked. Immigration attorney Michal Wildes said that the Bieber should limit his travel and lay low.
“No doubt Justin Bieber is facing a challenge. Something that he created by himself,” Wildes said, “Whether it’s throwing eggs, drag racing, having marijuana, or even making concessions or admissions to police officers.”
His fans said that everyone makes mistakes.
“He’s made a lot of mistakes but everyone makes mistakes,” Plascencia said.
Plascencia’s mother Kristen hoped her daughter would focus her attention on other acts.
“I don’t think this will change her mind regarding how she feels about him but she also likes one direction so hopefully she will focus on One direction at this point because they seem to be good boys,” she said.
