Justin Bieber was arrested shortly after 4 a.m. Thursday on suspicion of DUI, after leaving a Florida nightclub and reportedly drag racing near Miami Beach.
According to MSN.com, Bieber was arrested on Pine Tree Drive and 26th Street in Miami Beach. He was driving a rented yellow Lamborghini, police told NBC 6 South Florida, and allegedly failed a field sobriety test. He was allegedly drag racing.
Yes, of course this is shocking ... and here we thought he was spending his evenings at home, reading the Bible and drinking hot cocoa.
MSN.com reported the 19-year-old singer was expected to be booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail. Singer Khalil, 19, was also arrested for DUI and drag racing. Just a few hours earlier, Bieber tweeted, "Just livin life, blessed."
Us Weekly reports Justin Bieber was seen driving with model Chantel Jeffries after emerging from Miami nightclub SET with a large group of people.
According to the police report, obtained by Us Weekly, officials later spotted yellow and red Lamborghinis racing each other at approximately 55-60 mph and stopped each at approximately 4 a.m. The report says the arresting officer "smelled an odor of alcohol" from the yellow Lamborghini Bieber was driving, and describes Bieber as having "bloodshot eyes" and "a stupor look on his face."
The report says Bieber was digging in his pockets and cursing during a subsequent pat-down. "What the (expletive) did I do? Why did you stop me," the singer reportedly asked. "I ain't got no (expletive) weapons. Why do you have to search me? What the (expletive) is this about?"
According to the report, the arrest officer said, "I advised the driver that if he continued to take his hands off his vehicle, he would be subject to arrest. The driver again turned around to face me. At this time, I grabbed his right hand and stated to him that he was under arrest. The driver began to resist me by pulling his right arm away as he stated: 'What the (expletive) are you doing?.'"
The driver of the red Lamborghini, identified as 19-year-old singer Khalil Amir Sharieff, was also arrested for DUI and drag racing.
The website reported Bieber was spotted around town for a few days, making stops at a strip club and a skate shop. Just hours before he was arrested, a source reportedly told E! News that Bieber's advisers have been "encouraging him to go to rehab for a while. He won't listen to his team."
During a reported texting spat with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, the contents of which were obtained by Radar Online, the actress is said to have urged Bieber to get into rehab as wello.
The arrest comes on the heels of an incident in which Bieber is accused of egging a neighbor's house near his Los Angeles mansion. During a subsequent investigation, sheriff's deputies reportedly found two cookie jars full of pot in Bieber's house and evidence that Bieber was using the codeine-fueled cocktail known as "sizzurp."
"His ego has gotten out of control," the source said, noting Bieber's friends are known troublemakers. "Lil Za, Milk, and Lil Twist are particularly bad influences on him."
