Canadian pop star Justin Bieber continues his downward spiral. The 19-year-old was arrested early Thursday morning in Miami for drag racing and driving under the influence of alcohol and marijuana.

According to TMZ, Bieber was pulled over in Miami after his yellow Lamborghini was spotted as one of two vehicles racing at 4.09am on January 22. Apparently Bieber’s people blocked off a whole road in order for him and another singer by the name of Khalil to be able to race. Both were arrested and their cars towed.

Miami police spokesman Sergeant Bobby Hernandez revealed that the pop star resisted arrest and failed a field sobriety test after being caught driving at 55mph in a 30mph residential area. Bieber’s initial reaction when he was pulled over was, “What the f*** did I do? Why did you stop me?”

Bieber “had been smoking marijuana and he did consume a beer” according to Hernandez.The police department confirmed Bieber’s arrest on Twitter. Here’s the infamous mugshot, courtesy of TMZ.


Bieber has since been release from a Miami jail. He made a brief appearance through a video link before a Miami judge, who set a “standard” $2,500 bond Thursday afternoon.

Earlier this month Bieber had another run-in with the police. He was accused of throwing eggs at his neighbour’s house while his neighbour and neighbour’s daughter were on the balcony filming him. Police arrived at his home with a search warrant but did not arrest Bieber.
