Justin Bieber has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) and drag racing early Thursday (January 23) morning whilst on holiday in Miami, Florida.
Police sources speaking to NBC 6 South Florida disclosed that Bieber was driving a rented Lamborghini, and was apprehended for drag racing in Miami Beach.
Miami Beach spokesman, Sgt. Bobby Hernandez, said that the incident occurred around 4am local time in the area of Pine tree Drive and West 26th Street. Another car was similarly apprehended.
Bieber failed a sobriety test at the scene and was taken into custody. Hernandez stated that the other driver was also arrested. Bieber is due to be booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail later today.
Bieber has spent several days in Miami, Instagramming pictures of himself at a Miami skate park earlier in the week.
The teen star has been at the centre of a series of troubling reports recently, with his house being raided by police last week following the egging of a neighbour’s house. Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette, has asked fans of the Canadian singer to pray for her son in this period of personal struggle, sparking the Twitter hashtag #prayforbieber.
