Justin Bieber Arrested on Drag Racing, DUI Charges
(MIAMI) -- Justin Bieber was arrested early Thursday morning after leaving a Miami Beach club, accused of drag racing and DUI, police said.
The arrest was announced on the Miami Beach Police Department's Twitter page.
Police said Bieber, 19, was pulled over for speeding in a yellow Lamborghini and failed a field sobriety test, ABC News affiliate WPLG-TV reports.
The Canadian singer has faced increasing legal trouble in the past year. He was recently investigated by Los Angeles police after a neighbor accused Bieber of throwing eggs at his house.
Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald that Bieber was under the influence of drugs and incoherent. He had his hands in his pockets and resisted arrest without violence, the chief said, adding that the singer didn't have a driver's license.
The musician’s entourage had apparently used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, a residential area, at 4:30 a.m., creating a drag strip for Bieber, who was in a Lamborghini, the newspaper reported.
Bieber was at the police station early Thursday morning and was to be taken to county jail for processing, the Herald reported.
