Justin Bieber arrested!

Story Highlight

There are reports that Justin Bieber has been arrested in Miami.

Police in Miami Beach say Justin Bieber has been arrested and is accused of DUI and drag racing.

The Miami Beach Police Department confirmed 19-year-old Bieber’s arrest Thursday morning in a tweet on its official Twitter page.

UPDATE:

Authorities say Bieber was arrested after police saw him and R&B singer Khalil racing two luxury vehicles down the street in Miami Beach with two other vehicles apparently being used to block off the area. Both Bieber and Khalil face drag-racing and driving under the influence charges.

Police Chief Ray Martinez told a news conference Thursday morning the singer was initially not cooperative when the officer pulled him over. Martinez said the singer also had an invalid Georgia driver’s license and admitted to smoking marijuana, taking prescription medication and drinking.

Police say Bieber was clocked at 55 to 60 mph in a 30 mph zone.

According to the arrest report, Bieber “had slow deliberate movements” and a look of stupor on his face when the officer ordered him to exit his vehicle.

Bieber failed a field sobriety test and was taken to the Miami Beach police station for a Breathalyzer, police said. Results have not been released.

The Miami Beach Police Department also released images of the arrest report and Bieber’s mugshots.

 

The arrest comes just a week after the singer’s California home was raided by police over claims he pelted his neighbour’s house with eggs, causing thousands of dollars of damage.

In that case, authorities arrested one member of Bieber’s entourage on suspicion of drug possession.
