In breaking news, teen pop star Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami earlier today for drag-racing and being under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The 19-year-old Canadian singer initially resisted arrest and verbal assaulted police officers when they caught him drag racing in what is believed to be a rented Lamborghini. Justin eventually cooperated and admitted to police that he had smoked marijuana and taken prescription drugs that day. Following a bail hearing, Bieber left the jail with his personal entourage and police officers, controversially sitting on top of an SUV and waving to his awaiting fans before being driven away. His bail was set at $2,850.
A Miami police chief said that two SUV’s had blocked off a four lane road so Justin and his friend – driving a rented red Ferrari, could race. He was allegedly driving at around 96km in a 40km zone. In the police report an officer says that Justin had bloodshot eyes and the smell of alcohol on his breath when he was first arrested. His mug shot shows him smiling, which has been a highly talked about point in this case. The other driver on the scene was said to be R&B singer Khalil Sharieff, who was arrested for driving under the influence.
Justin Bieber has been charged with resisting arrest without violence and driving on an expired license.
