When Justin Bieber was pulled over by police in Miami on Jan. 23, he had model Chantel Jeffries in his passenger seat. Now, HollywoodLife.com has learned exactly why the stunning beauty — who has had run-ins with the law before — wasn’t worried about being involved with Justin’s DUI.
Though her name may be unfamiliar, Chantel Jeffries is no stranger to the spotlight — the 21-year-old North Carolina native has dated celebs, and is signed to a huge modeling agency. However, she’s also used to being on the wrong side of the law. The model has reportedly been arrested a whopping five times, and HollywoodLife.com got the scoop on why Justin Bieber‘s arrest left her with a smile on her face.

Chantel, who has already reportedly dated Justin’s friend Lil Twist, is fame-hungry, according to HollywoodLife.com‘s insider.
“I guess she finally got the come-up she’s been f—ing for,” our source says. “She literally only hangs out with famous guys; that’s all she cares about. Athletes, rappers — [she will date] whoever. The only thing that matters to her is their status. This whole thing is a dream come true for her.”
Justin Bieber — Inside His Arrest
Moments before the big arrest, Justin posted a pic with Chantel, which was captioned “@chanteljeffries taking me for a ride in the lambo.” Justin, who was reportedly drag racing, was pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence. The singer was let out on a $2,500 bail about nine hours after his arrest, as well as a publicly televised bond hearing. Once out of jail, Justin climbed on top of his SUV and waved to his adoring fans.
It’s still unknown whether or not Justin will enter rehab. He admitted to smoking marijuana, taking prescription medications and drinking a beer to his arresting officer, and Los Angeles police officers found drugs and drugs paraphernalia scattered around his home during their raid on Jan. 14.
