    Justin chose to mark the anniversary this year with an Instagram post showing one of the images of him in handcuffs. "7 years ago today I was arrested, not my finest hour," he began.

    "Not proud of where I was at in my life. I was hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, mislead, misunderstood and angry at god. I also wore too much leather for someone in Miami."

    Justin then got religious, continuing, "All this to say God has brought me a long way."

    He added, "My encouragement to you is to 'let your past be a reminder of how far god has brought you. Don’t allow shame to ruin your 'today.'"
