Justin Bieber arrested for DUI and drag racing in Miami Beach - Updated

By Daniel S Levine,

Singer Justin Bieber has been arrested in Miami Beach for allegedly driving under the influence and drag racing.

Police sources told NBC 6 South Florida that the “As Long As You Love Me” singer was driving a rented Lamborghini. Although there were no further details from officials, TMZ has reported that Bieber is already in custody at a local police department. There, he will likely be tested for his blood alcohol level. He will then be booked in jail.

TMZ reports that police stopped Bieber for drag racing and then checked to see if he was intoxicated. He failed a field sobriety test, according to a source for the site.

UPDATE: Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told The Miami Herald that Bieber was under the influence of drugs. The paper reports that his entourage allegedly blocked off part of a street just so he could have a drag race. Another driver, Khalil Sharief, who has a recording contract with Island Def Jam records, was charged with a DUI.

Police told the Herald that hen he was stopped, Bieber yelled the f-word at them.

This is just the latest incident for Bieber, who has already had an eventful trip in Miami. He reportedly spent $75,000 at a strip club there, a report the club owner later confirmed.

He’s also in the middle of an egging controversy, in which the Los Angeles County Sheriff searched his Calabasas home. He could be charged with a felony in that case, since the neighbor he egged claims Bieber caused thousands of dollars in damage.
