This is the startling revelation contained in an official report obtained by NBC News and published Wednesday.

“The captain of the flight stated that he warned the passengers, including Bieber, on several occasions to stop smoking marijuana,” the report reads.

The 19-year-old Canadian pop star and his father were also allegedly harassing the flight attendant, who took refuge in the cockpit during the flight in the leased Gulfstream IV.

Bieber was flying to Teterboro, New Jersey to attend Super Bowl weekend festivities. He had been in Toronto to surrender to police in connection with an alleged assault on a limo driver at the end of December.

Bieber’s jet was met by Drug Enforcement Agency officers and Customs and Border Patrol agents and police. According to the report, Bieber admitted to officials that he had smoked marijuana and consumed alcohol.

No marijuana was found on the plane. Bieber was not charged with any criminal offence.

NBC News was not able to get comments from officials or the company that operates the jet, Meridian Air Charter.

Jeremy Bieber was in Miami Beach when Bieber was arrested Jan. 23 on suspicion of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. He was also with the pop star on the night Bieber allegedly assaulted his driver in downtown Toronto.
