Pop star Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach early Thursday on charges of DUI and drag-racing, a police spokesman said. The bad-boy musician’s entourage had apparently used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, a residential area, at 4:30 a.m., creating a drag strip for the young star, who was in a Lamborghini.
Test showed that Bieber was under the influence of drugs, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald.
Bieber was incoherent, had his hands in his pockets and resisted arrest without violence, Martinez said. He also did not have a valid license, the chief said.
"When the cars are going that fast, it takes awhile to catch up," said Martinez, whose officers heard the racing in the distance.
Officers are working to book Bieber into jail. He's at the police station and then will be taken to county jail for processing.
The arrest caps a highly visible week for Beiber in South Florida, where he reported to have blown tens of thousands of dollars at the King of Diamonds strip club.
The Opa-locka police department has also said it is investigating an officer who gave Beiber and his crew an unauthorized escort through traffic after landing at the Opa-locka airport.
His arrest is another black eye for the embattled pop star.
Earlier this month, a neighbor in Los Angeles accused Bieber and his pals of hurling eggs at his home, causing extensive damages. Officers searched Beiber's home and one person was arrested for drugs.
