1st Time in Jail: Justin Bieber Arrested !!
Justin Bieber was arrested for DUI and it wasn’t pretty — cops say Justin was wasted and resisted arrest. Bieber was busted in Miami Beach and it didn’t end with DUI … he was also busted for resisting arrest without violence, drag racing and driving on an expired license.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … they believe Justin was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.
The arrest occurred early Thursday morning.
Bieber is now in custody and is at the police department where he is being tested — presumably to more precisely measure his blood alcohol level. Our law enforcement sources say Justin was given a field sobriety test at the scene … and failed.
His next stop will be jail, where he will be booked and processed and bail will be set.
We’re told Bieber had just left a club and was driving a yellow Lamborghini at the time cops spotted him in a residential neighborhood. Our sources say Justin’s people actually blocked the street off so Bieber could drag race.
Sources say the person Justin was racing was also arrested. We’re told that driver was Khalil, a well-known rapper on Def Jam Records. He was in a red Lambo.
Justin had a passenger in the car — a model.
Based on what we know … the traffic stop was for drag racing and cops determined he was driving under the influence.
Bieber allegedly yelled “Why the f— are you doing this?” and “What the f— did I do? Why did you stop me?” at police, who wrote in their report that as they approached his Lamborghini, the singer smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and appeared to be in a “stupor.”
Police then attempted to perform a routine pat-down on the singer, who claimed he wasn’t drunk and had just left a recording studio (several photographs actually placed him in a Miami nightclub before being arrested). Bieber reportedly told the officers “I ain’t got no f—ing weapons,” and reportedly kept placing his hands in his pants pocket.
The police report says Bieber was driving between 55 and 60 MPH in a 30 MPH residential area. According to the Miami Beach Police Department, the singer is still in custody.
