New York: No one is a stranger to Justin Bieber's roller coaster life. His outbursts and every minuscule emotional moment in the past are a well-known fact. This weekend, the pop star took some time to reflect upon his once troubled days, which according to him, are long behind him.
On Sunday, Bieber posted his 2014 mugshot from his DUI arrest on Instagram, next to a current photo of himself captioned: "I love this because it reminds me I'm not exactly where I want to be but thank God I'm not where I used to be! The best is yet to come do you believe it?"
For some time, Bieber became a poster boy for bad behavior. In 2014, Bieber's arrest stemmed from a drag racing incident in Miami, following which he failed a sobriety test and was found to be driving with an expired license.
In July 2014, Bieber was placed on probation for two years following a plea deal for vandalizing his neighbor's home with eggs and he had to complete 12 anger management sessions, community service and pay $80,900 in restitution.
A month prior to that, a video circulated of the singer using the "N-word" and singing about joining the Ku Klux Klan. However, he released an apology stating: "I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously, and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake."
In 2015, Bieber was found guilty of assault and reckless driving when his ATV collided with a minivan in Canada.But Beliebers reckon that their hero has in a way found his "purpose."
