Justin Bieber’s personal jet was held on the runway after authorities smelled a suspicious odor coming from the passenger area of the cabin.

The plane was headed for New Jersey for the Super Bowl.

The plane had just arrived at 2:53 p.m. from Toronto when authorities detected what was described as a strong odor of pot.

The plane, believed to be a twin-jet Raytheon Hawker 800, was ordered held until drug-sniffing dogs could check it out.

It was not clear if Bieber was aboard. The singer planned to fly from his native Canada so he could take in the Super Bowl and pre-game festivities.

The incident comes after Toronto authorities decided to charge the 19-year-old Bieber with assault on Wednesday.

He is already facing a driving-under-the-influence case in Miami and remains under investigation for felony vandalism in Los Angeles.
