The 19 year-old teen singing sensation was all smiles in his mugshot after being arrested in Florida early this morning for reportedly drag racing along the streets of Miami beach.
And thanks to social media, fans knew immediately as the Miami Beach police released details of the arrest on via its Twitter page:
According to CBS News:
Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald that Bieber was under the influence of drugs and incoherent. He had his hands in his pockets and resisted arrest without violence, the chief said, adding that the singer didn’t have a driver’s license.
The 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 Bieber, who was in a Lamborghini, the newspaper reported.
Bieber was at the police station early this morning and was to be taken to county jail for processing.
Bieber was arrested after police saw him and R&B singer Khalil racing two luxury vehicles down the street at 4:09 a.m., with two other vehicles apparently being used to block off the area. Both Bieber and Khalil face drag-racing and driving under the influence charges.
According to the arrest report, Bieber “had slow deliberate movements” and a look of stupor on his face when the officer ordered him to exit his vehicle.
Biebs was placed under arrest after repeatedly refusing to put his hands on his vehicle so the officer could pat him down to look for weapons, the report said. It says he cursed several times at the officer and demanded to know why he was being arrested.
