Justin Bieber broke the law again, and he's going to pay for it.

About $162, in fact.

According to TMZ, that's the average price of a ticket for being on your mobile phone while driving in California.

A police officer spotted the pop star, 23, driving around Beverly Hills in a black Mercedes G-Wagon on July 15 -- and Justin was on his device, which is against the law in Cali.

TMZ reports that the Biebs was then pulled over and issued a citation for using his phone while driving, though it's unknown if he was texting or talking on it at the time.

"Cops tell us Justin was calm and cooperative, took his ticket and moved along without further incident," TMZ explained.

Just has, of course, been in much more serious trouble with the law before.

In January 2014, he was arrested in Miami Beach and charged with DUI and resisting arrest after cops saw him speeding down a residential street in a yellow Lamborghini. He also had an expired license.

At the time, police also claimed he was uncooperative and had admitted he'd been drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana and taking prescription medication earlier in the day.

He eventually settled the case by pleading guilty to careless driving and resisting arrest.

In April 2017, Justin took to Instagram to post a split image of himself then -- as seen in his mugshot -- and now, and celebrate how far he's come.

"I LOVE THIS because it reminds me IM NOT EXACTLY WHERE I WANT TO BE BUT THANK GOD IM NOT WHERE I USED TO BE!! THE BEST IS YET TO COME DO YOU BELIEVE IT?" he captioned the image.

Later in 2014, Justin accepted a plea deal in a vandalism case -- he'd damaged a neighbor's home when he repeatedly pelted it with eggs -- that saw him pay $80,900 restitution. He was also put on probation for two years.

In June 2015, he was found guilty of assault and careless driving in Ontario in his native Canada, stemming from an ancient in which his ATV collided with a minivan, CNN reported.

In February 2017, the "Sorry" singer was being investigated for allegedly head-butting a man on Feb. 11 at a pre-Grammys party in Los Angeles. The same month, he was named as a suspect in an assault case that occurred in June 2016 in Cleveland. Both seem to now be well in the past.
