Justin Bieber Arrested in Miami Beach for DUI and Drag Racing

Singer Justin Bieber has been arrested in Miami Beach, Fla., for drag racing and DUI, according to police.

The Miami Beach Police Dept., in a post on its official Twitter account, said Bieber was arrested Thursday morning after he was drag racing.

Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald that a test showed that Bieber was under the influence of drugs. Martinez also said Bieber was incoherent, had his hands in his pockets and resisted arrest without violence.

According to a police report obtained by TMZ, the arresting officer “immediately smelled an odor of alcohol” on Bieber’s breath, along with bloodshot eyes, slow deliberate movements and “a stupor look on his face.”

Bieber also told police that he’d had beer, pot and a prescription drug.

Bieber was arrested at around 4 a.m., after police stopped the 19-year-old Canadian pop star and another driver. Police said Bieber, who was driving a rented yellow Lamborghini, was taken into custody after he failed a sobriety test. The second car was a red Ferrari, and that driver was also arrested, police said.

Last week, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. searched Bieber’s Calabasas home to investigate a complaint that eggs were thrown at a neighbor’s house, causing thousands of dollars in damage. One member of Bieber’s entourage was arrested on suspicion of drug possession.
