In a press conference on Jan. 23, a police spokesperson revealed that Justin imbibed a dangerous mix of drugs and alcohol, drove twice the speed limit, and swore at officers as he was arrested. Read on for more details.
Justin Bieber is officially in the hottest water possible. Sgt. Bobby Hernandez of the Miami-Dade Police Department confirmed on Jan. 23 that the 19-year-old singer was under the influence of a dangerous concoction of prescription drugs, marijuana, and alcohol when he was pulled over and arrested early in the morning for drag racing in a residential area.
Justin Bieber Was On A ‘Combination Of Narcotics, Marijuana & Alcohol’
Justin was going “anywhere up to 55 to 60 miles per hour,” on residential street, Pine Tree Dr., Sgt. Hernandez said. That doesn’t sound too fast, except when you consider that the speed limit on Pine Tree Dr. is 30 miles per hour — Justin was driving twice that. Plus, Sgt. Hernandez revealed that Justin and the car he was racing — which was driven by rapper Khalil — were accelerating when police first drove by.
And what’s worse, Justin was definitely under the influence while he was behind the wheel. “I don’t have the levels,” Sgt. Hernandez said in the press conference before adding, “He did admit he had been taking a prescription medication, he was high on marijuana, and he had drank a beer.”
Justin Bieber Swore At Police During DUI Arrest
Finally, Sgt. Hernandez confirmed the report that Justin was not cooperative with the authorities who had pulled him over. “First he was belligerent,” the spokesman said, adding that Justin cursed at the cops and kept questioning why he had been pulled over.
Justin is currently still in custody at the Miami Beach Police Department, Sgt. Hernandez told HollywoodLife.com over the phone. “Once he is processed he will be taken to the Miami-Dade County Jail and it’ll be about eight hours from the time he was taken in, a minimum of noon before he is released.”
What a mess for Justin. He is facing some serious charges, and on top of the problems he has in relation to his egging scandal back in Los Angeles — it’s just getting worse and worse.
