MIAMI (AP) -- Two people involved in the case tell The Associated Press singer Justin Bieber will plead guilty to lesser charges over his arrest in South Florida in what police initially described as an illegal street race.

The two people said Tuesday that the 20-year-old star will plead guilty to misdemeanor careless driving and resisting arrest without violence charges, rather than the original driving under the influence charge. Bieber also will agree to take an anger management course and make a $50,000 charitable donation, in addition to paying court-ordered fines.

The plea agreement doesn't call for any jail time.

The two people insisted on anonymity because they weren't authorized to comment publicly before a Wednesday court hearing. Bieber isn't expected to attend. The Miami Herald first reported the plea deal.
