Is it a Canadian disease? First Rob Ford, now… Justin Bieber Is Arrested For driving while drunk and high?
Pop star Justin Bieber was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and drag racing on Thursday morning, prompting detractors to declare there is a deity.
Miami Beach police Detective Vivian Hernandez said the arrest comes days after sheriff’s deputies in Los Angeles County, California, used a felony search warrant to raid Bieber’s mansion as they investigated his alleged involvement in a January 9 egg attack on his neighbor’s house.
The police spokesperson told reporters Bieber was charged with drunken driving, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license. It’s the first arrest for the 19-year-old pop star, although he is under investigation on allegations of egging his California neighbor’s home.
The entertainer, who’s been to Barbados, was driving a yellow Lamborghini that police saw drag racing a Ferrari in a residential area and showed “signs of impairment,” Hernandez said. He added Bieber failed a field sobriety test.
Two SUVs “blocked the traffic at 26th and Pine Street so that they could race on Pine Street, almost making it like a makeshift race track,” Hernandez said. The Ferrari’s driver, whom Hernandez called “an associate of Bieber,” was also arrested on a drunken driving charge, he said. Police didn’t identify the Ferrari driver.
