Just after being investigated for a felony vandalism of his neighbor’s home, Justin Bieber has been arrested in Miami, Florida!
Bieber, 19, was taken into custody for DUI after police spotted him drag racing a rented yellow Lamborghini. Justin admitted drinking beer and smoking weed “all day”. He is also being charged with resisting arrest.
The Miami Herald reports Justin and his entourage used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, a residential area, at 4:30 a.m. to create a drag racing strip for the singer.
Miami Beach police confirmed the arrests of Justin Bieber and R&B singer Khalil Sharief.
Officers spotted the two cars racing at 4:09 a.m., with Justin driving a Lamborghini and Khalil driving a Ferrari. Both cars were towed.
Police Chief Raymond Martinez said Justin failed the sobriety tests. Martinez stated, “Tests showed that Bieber was under the influence of drugs. He also did not have a valid license.”
The officer pulled Bieber’s car over, but the singer was “was not cooperating with the officer’s instructions,” Martinez said.
“At first, he was a little belligerent, using some choice words questioning why he was being stopped and why the officer was even questioning him,” he said.
“When he opened up the window and confronted Mr. Bieber, he smelled a strong odor of alcoholic beverage,” Martinez said. The officer believed “Bieber may have been impaired.”
The Miami Herald reports Bieber was “incoherent, had his hands in his pockets and resisted arrest without violence”.
Justin got out of his car, but kept putting his hands in his pocket. The officer stated in his report he asked the teen to then put his hands on the vehicle. That’s when the singer said, “What the f*** did I do, why did you stop me?”
Justin told police, “I ain’t got no f****ing weapons, why do you have to search me? What the f*** is this about?”
The officer “grabbed his right hand and stated to him that he was under arrest.”
Bieber then “began to resist me by pulling his right arm away as he stated ‘What the f*** are you doing?'”.
That is when another officer was called for assistance and Bieber was arrested.
Police have confirmed Bieber had been drinking beer, was under the influence of anti-depressants and had been smoking marijuana. The singer’s friend Khalil was also arrested.
