Justin Bieber has been arrested for a DUI and for drag racing on a Miami Beach street, police say.
Miami Beach Police Department confirmed the pop star’s arrest to CBS News station WFOR in Miami.
The 19-year-old singer was in a yellow Lamborghini when he was arrested and later failed a sobriety test.
Miami Dade-Police spokesman Sgt. Bobby Hernandez says officers saw two cars racing at 4:09 a.m. Thursday.
Hernandez says two vehicles apparently had been used to block off an area for the drag race. He says the second car was a red Ferrari, and that driver was also arrested. Both cars were towed.
Hernandez says Bieber failed a field sobriety test and was taken to the Miami Beach police station for a breathalyzer and processing. Hernandez says Bieber will be transported soon to the Miami-Dade County jail.
The arrest comes on the heels of another controversy for Bieber. Officials have said that detectives in California recently searched Bieber's home looking for surveillance footage that might serve as evidence the pop star was involved in an egg-tossing vandalism case that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a neighbor's home.
In that case, authorities arrested one member of Bieber's entourage on suspicion of drug possession.
