Justin Bieber has been arrested for allegedly drag racing in Miami Beach, Fla., and driving under the influence, the Miami Beach Police Department confirmed in a press conference.
Police said 19-year-old Bieber was arrested Thursday just after 4 a.m. on Pine Tree Drive and 26th Street. According to police, he was driving a yellow Lamborghini while under the influence of marijuana, prescription pills and alcohol.
Officers saw two cars racing at 4:09 a.m. Thursday, with two vehicles apparently used to block the area off, Miami Dade Police Chief Raymond A. Martinez said during a press conference. He says the second car was a red Ferrari, and that driver, R&B singer Khalil Sharief, was also arrested. Both cars were towed.
The singer was booked at Miami-Dade County jail, the Miami-Dade County Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation confirmed to FOX411. His bail was set at $2,500, and the star’s mug shot was released, showing him smiling for camera.
The pop star was stopped by police because his car was going nearly double the speed limit in the residential area, and when a police officer approached the singer the officer “smelled a strong odor of alcoholic beverage” coming from the Biebs’ car, Martinez told reporters. According to the arrest report, Bieber’s eyes were bloodshot and he had “a stuper [sic] look on his face.”0
