Justin Bieber Busted For Drag Racing, DUI

Justin Bieber
It hasn't been easy being Justin Bieber lately, and now the singer has run into more trouble in Miami Beach. Early this morning, Bieber was arrested for drag racing and suspicion of DUI. The Miami Beach Police Department confirmed the incident on its Twitter page, and later said the singer resisted arrest and had an expired Georgia driver's license. The official police report states that an officer pulled over Bieber's Lamborgini while he was racing with another Lamborgini. When Bieber asked, 'Why did you stop me?,' the officer explained that he was pulled over for drag racing, noting in the report that he, "Immediately smelled an odor of alcohol emanating from the driver's breath and bloodshot eyes. The officer said Bieber had "slow, deliberate movements and a stuper look on his face," which are indications of impaired driving.

He ordered Bieber out of the car and the singer had his hands in his pockets, prompting the officer to tell Bieber to put his hands on the car so he could perform a pat-down. The singer cursed at the officer and refused to keep his hands on the car. Finally, after being told that he would be arrested if he took his hands off the car again, Bieber again turned to face the officer, at which point he grabbed the singer's right hand and informed him that he was under arrest. Bieber resisted being cuffed and was then taken into custody. The report goes on to say that during transport to the police station, Bieber once more asked why he'd been arrested, telling police that he was not drunk and was on his way back from working on new music at a recording studio. Once they arrived at the station, Bieber was given a field sobriety test, which he failed.

The singer
was booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail on $2,500 bond and will be charged with DUI, resisting arrest without violence, and driving with an expired license. The driver of the other Lamborghini, R&B singer Khalil Sharief, was also arrested and will be charged with DUI. The complete police report and mug shots for both singers can be seen on the Miami Beach Police Twitter page, @MiamiBeachPD.
