Justin Bieber's mugshot released following arrest for DUI and drag racing
Dressed in orange, the singer appeared dishevelled, but in high spirits, as he smiled for police behind the camera
Justin Bieber’s mugshot has been released following his arrest for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and drag racing.
Dressed in orange, the singer appeared dishevelled, but in high spirits, as he smiled for police behind the camera.
The singer, who is currently still in custody, was stopped in his yellow Lamborghini by officers in Miami Beach this morning.
He had been partying at a strip club on Lincoln Road just hours before he was caught drag racing against Def-Jam rapper Khalil, who was driving a red Lamborghini, on a public strip in the area.
Bieber was further charged for resisting arrest.
Khalil was also arrested at the scene.
A second person is thought to have been travelling with Bieber in the passenger seat. TMZ reports that the person is a model named Chantel. The article also suggests that Bieber's management blocked off the street especially for Bieber to drag race.
According to the police report obtained by the site, Bieber was defiant from the outset, shouting at the officers on the scene: "Why the f**k are you doing this?"
He also yelled: "What the f**k did I do. Why did you stop me?"
When an officer tried to perform a routine pat down, Bieber said, "I ain't got no f**king weapons, why do you have to search me? What the f**k is this about?"
Bieber claimed he wasn't drunk and that he was returning from recording music in a studio.
However, the report suggests he had lied to law enforcement officers and was returning from the club.
Before the pat down, Bieber "kept going into his pants pocket" as he exited his vehicle.
The officer ordered him to put his hands on the vehicle, and Bieber initially complied but soon took his hands off the car, before turning round and swearing at the officer.
The policeman then grabbed Bieber by the right arm. He pulled his arm away, and said, "What the f**k are you doing?"
The report says Justin was driving between 55 and 60mph in a 30mph residential area.
A representative for Bieber is yet to return The Independent's request for comment
The news comes just one week after Bieber's Californian home was raided over claims he pelted a neighbour's house with eggs.
Bieber spent most of December teasing the music world of his retirement.
