Justin Bieber Arrested
On Jan. 23, Justin was stopped at 4:09 AM for drag racing after leaving a SET nightclub on Pine Tree Dr. and 26 St. The speed limit was 30 MPH on the street, where he was driving around 60 MPH. He was driving a rented yellow Lamborghini when police realized he was under the influence, Miami Dade-Police spokesman Sgt. Bobby Hernandez told HollywoodLife.com.
“Justin wasn’t cooperating, he wouldn’t take his hands out of his pants initially,” Hernandez told us. “His team did shut down the streets for him, and yes that is illegal.”
In the press conference, police said that Justin was being “belligerent, using some choice words” at the time of his arrest and was questioning why he was even being arrested. Justin also admitted that he had consumed a beer, had smoked marijuana and had taken prescription drugs.
Justin’s Friends Post Pics Of Lambos Before Arrest
Model Chantel Jefferies was driving the Lambo in photos that Justin had posted earlier in the night and has since deleted. Khalil, who was racing against Justin and also got arrested, posted a photo of Chantel and Justin in the yellow car, but she was behind the wheel. He captioned the pic “U know bizzle brought that lambo out.” However, police have confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that he was driving when they pulled him over and Chantel was not arrested.
Khalil also posted a photo of him behind the wheel, writing “Miami nights ridin thru yo city in that hot wheel,” and a pic in front of a red Lambo next to Justin in front of a yellow one.
Justin’s rep had no comment about his arrest.
Justin is currently in police custody at the Miami police department to determine his blood alcohol level. He failed his field sobriety test and resisted arrest, refusing to take his hands out of his pockets. He also was driving with an expired license.
Once he is processed, he will be taken to the Miami Dade County Jail and it will be about eight hours from the time he was taken in. It will be noon, at the earliest, before he is released. His bail will be set as $500. He will not go before the judge because it’s a traffic violation, the police confirmed.
This follows Justin’s adventure at King of Diamonds club to celebrate his friend Lil Scrappy‘s birthday in Miami on Jan. 20 where he spent $75,000.
