Justin Bieber has had his share of troubles, and now it’s landed him in police custody. The pop superstar was arrested for DUI and drag racing in Miami Beach on Thursday.
According to TMZ, the 19-year-old singer was leaving SET nightclub in his rented Lamborghini when he was pulled over by cops around 4 a.m. on Thursday morning. He was given a field sobriety test and failed.
Officers approached Bieber’s car and they instantly smelled alcohol and noticed that he had bloodshot eyes.
He resisted arrest and cussed the cop out, saying, “Why the f**k are you doing this? … What the f**k did I do? Why did you stop me?”
During the arrest, he admitted that he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
“[Justin] made statements he had consumed some alcohol, been smoking marijuana, and consumed some prescription medication,” said an official during a news conference.
He was reportedly going between 55 and 60 mph in a 30 mph residential area and was driving on an expired Georgia license. Model Chantel Jeffries was a passenger in his vehicle.
Bieber was taken into custody and booked. He also posed for a smiley mugshot in a jail-issued orange jumpsuit.
His friend, 19-year-old Def Jam singer Khalil, was racing alongside him in a red Ferrari before he was arrested for DUI.
Bieber has been seen around Miami this week, visiting the beach, a skate shop, and King of Diamonds gentlemen’s club, where he reportedly dropped $75,000.
Earlier this month, he made headlines for egging his neighbor’s house. Police raided his Calabasas mansion and arrested his friend Lil Za for drug possession.
UPDATE: Bieber has been released from jail on $2,500 bond. He got on top of a car and waved to fans as paparazzi surrounded the vehicle.
