Justin Bieber was held at Brisbane airport after a drug search on one of his entourage.

The group were held at the Australian airport while customs agents looked for drugs, allegedly finding marijuana on one of Justin's friends, reports TMZ.

The website has obtained information from the Australian Federal Police relating to the incident.

“A 19-year-old man was detained back on Nov. 24 but was released after getting a stern warning for using ‘inappropriate language.’ He reportedly swore at the officers,” TMZ said.

“Sources connected with the incident tell us Justin was the one with the potty mouth.”

Radaronline reported that Justin insulted a woman customs officer at the airport, telling her “You’re just a female vagina.”

It’s alleged that the US citizen, thought to be one of Justin’s bodyguards, caught with the marijuana had a dissolvable vaporiser

“The AFP says a security check turned up an unknown amount of pot on a 23-year-old man in Justin's entourage. The suspect was released, but got a ticket for allegedly importing drugs,” reported TMZ.

“Sources close to Justin tell us the suspect had a disposable vaporizer -basically an electronic device to smoke marijuana - which had residue in it. We're told an attorney for the suspect appeared in court today, and paid the fine,” the website added.

The news comes after Australia’s Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate reprimanded the 19-year-old singer for spray painting a hotel wall.

Calling him a “pop princess”, Tom made sure Justin knew that his vandalism would be not tolerated.
