Bieber Arrested In Miami Over Alleged DUI, Drag Racing [Official Mugshot]Authorities in Miami Beach, Florida have arrested and charged pop star Justin Bieber with resisting arrest and impaired driving as he was stopped by the police early Thursday morning for drag racing.
Furthermore, police Chief Raymond Martinez said that Bieber even told the police after being arrested that that he had smoked marijuana, consumed alcohol and taken prescription medicine.
According to the official report coming from the authorities, the 19-year-old celebrity was pulled over in a yellow Lamborghini. A red Ferrari was also taken by the police after the two vehicles were seen racing, with speeds of up to 100 km/h, over twice the speed limit, in a residential neighborhood.
Four sport utility vehicles which are part of the singer’s entourage reportedly travelled as a pack and blocked the road to make way for the race.
Bieber’s bail has been set at USD 2,500. At the time of arrest, the singer had an expired Georgia license.
According to the authorities, the driver of the red Ferrari is singer Khalil Sharieff, 19. Sharieff’s bail was set at USD 1,000.
Cursing and Resisting Arrest
Bieber is said to have been unwilling to cooperate with and even cursed at the police officer who stopped him.
The official police report said that the singer had bloodshot eyes, smelled of alcohol, made slow and deliberate movements and had a “stuper” (sic) look on his face at the time he was stopped.
The officer who arrested Bieber said in the report that when he asked the pop star to step out of his vehicle, he reportedly asked him, “Why the f*** are you doing this?”
After alighting the vehicle, Bieber is said to have been repeatedly reaching for his pocket prompting the officer to advise him to stop doing this for their safety. Bieber also reportedly resisted putting his hand on his Lamborghini to have a pat down.
At one point, Bieber took his hands off the sports car, faced the officer and said, “I ain't got no f***ing weapons, why do you have to search me? What the f*** is this about?”
The officer took Bieber’s right hand and told him he was under arrest after the singer turned around again. Bieber reportedly resisted and pulled his arm away while saying, “What the f*** are you doing?”
