Troubled pop star Justin Bieber returned to Los Angeles from a Panama vacation Tuesday, following his DUI charges, but many in the U.S. who are fed up with his bad behavior want him deported to Canada and have started a petition.
A petition demanding that the Obama administration deport Bieber to his native Canada
has surpassed the 100,000 signatures required to receive an official White House response.

Bieber is set to be arraigned on Valentine's Day in Miami on charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
He doesn't have to be present in court, and his lawyer, Roy Black, may be allowed to argue on his behalf.
Titled "Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card," the petition reads: "We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug-abusing Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked.
"He is not only threatening the safety of our people, but he is also a terrible influence on our nation's youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
The document was posted on the White House's "We the People" website, which asks Americans to create petitions on issues they are passionate about. Last year, more than 100,000 "Star Wars" fans petitioned the White House to build a Death Star, but were rejected because "the Administration does not support blowing up planets," and "the construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it."
Bieber, 19, has had a rough week, stemming from his arrest last week for DUI and drag racing in Miami. He then spent a spent a few days in Panama, where he was joined by his mentor, Usher, manager and other friends.
Citing a source, E! reported that Bieber
is doing well amid the controversy.
"Justin is doing OK right now," the source said. "He's with friends and family. That's what is most important now, being surrounded by family and his closest friends."
