Iowa track team uses ‘The Biebs’ to recruit girls

- Associated Press - Saturday, February 1, 2014

ANKENY, Iowa (AP) - A central Iowa high school is trying to convince girls to go out for track and field by warning them not to turn out like troubled pop star Justin Bieber.

The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/1i52Qf0) Ankeny Centennial High School has posted a tongue-in-cheek flyer sporting one of Bieber's latest police mug shots. It reads: "Justin Bieber never ran track. Now he's in jail. Coincidence? Don't Beliebe it. Don't end up like Bieber. Run track."

The 19-year-old Bieber was arrested Jan. 23 during what police describe as an illegal street drag race. He was charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and having an invalid driver's license and has pleaded not guilty. He was also charged Wednesday with assault in Toronto, accused of hitting a limousine driver in December.
