January 24, 2014 – Justin Bieber Arrested For DUI & Driving With Expired Drivers Licence

Justin Bieber has been arrested in Miami accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, marijuana and prescription drugs, BBC reports.

Miami Beach Police said the Canadian pop star was detained after racing on a street early on Thursday.

Police said he did not co-operate when pulled over and was also charged with resisting arrest without violence and having an expired driving licence.

He later appeared in court and was granted bail set at $2,500 (£1,500).

The 19-year-old has had several run-ins with police in recent years.

The arrest comes a week after his home in Los Angeles was searched by police following allegations he had thrown eggs at his neighbour’s house.

He was accused of causing significant damage to the property. One member of his entourage was arrested for alleged drug possession following the search.

In the latest incident, police said the singer had been driving a yellow Lamborghini when he was arrested in the early hours of Thursday.

The Miami Herald reported that members of the musician’s entourage had apparently used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, effectively creating a drag strip.

Police say the star didn’t co-operate at first, questioning why he had been stopped. He also had an invalid Georgia driver’s licence, officers said.

The driver of a red Ferrari was also arrested and both cars impounded, said Miami-Dade Police spokesman Sgt Bobby Hernandez.

Police later named the other driver as an R&B singer known as Khalil.

“During the investigation Bieber made statements that he had consumed some alcohol, that he had been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication,” said Miami Beach police chief Raymond Martinez.

“They were starting from a stop position and they were accelerating to a high rate of speed, going almost double the speed limit… in that area.”

The arrest report said the pop star “had slow deliberate movements” and a look of “stupor” when the officer told him to step out of the Lamborghini.

The two men were first taken to Miami Beach police station and later transferred to a Miami-Dade County jail before their court appearance.

The street where police say Justin Bieber was racing is a residential area in mid-Miami Beach.

    The cops are loving it , they would indirectly encourage him to do more by releasing him quickly. You know his bail fee is what the city is craving right now. Please young punk, do more shits!

    Dis is whr laws & oda r mentained irrespective of who u r. Here in Nigeria, 1ce u r a celeb, even whn u break d law, wt a little tips, u‘d go scot free. And d slogan is usually:- oh! Oga na u? Notin dey happen, oya carry go!

    4 instance, if sb lk Wizkid finds himself in Justin Bieber‘ shoe down here in Naija, wt just sm little Naira notes, he wld be release rt dia on d rd even if he was arrested by road narshals themselves.
    Well, we will get thr smday.
