NEW YORK: Canadian pop star Justin Bieber was arrested for drunken driving, drag racing and resisting arrest in Miami early Thursday.
Beiber had left a South Beach club. Soon he was pulled over for drag racing in a yellow Lamborghini alongside a red Ferrari driven by his friend singer Khalil. He was subjected to sobriety test and arrested, Miami Police said.
Miami Beach police Chief Raymond Martinez told a news conference that Bieber became “a little belligerent, questioning, using some choice words, why he had been stopped.’’
The teen star told the cops that he had been smoking marijuana, drinking beer and using some prescription medicine.
The arrest is the latest trouble in which Bieber has been embroiled in recent months since his last birthday in March. In fact, Beiber has described his last birthday as his `worst birthday’ because of the troubles in his life since then.
On January 14, police searched his Los Angeles home for an allegedly throwing eggs at his neighbour’s house. Though Bieber was not charged, his entourage member Lil Za was arrested for possessing drugs during the search.
