This story has broken wide open in the past 24 hours. To the chagrin of tweens everywhere, pop star Justin Bieber has been arrested in Miami on a multitude of charges. Will the defense of “he is too dreamy to be guilty” be enough?
It has been a rough few years for Justin Bieber. Perhaps desperate to change his bubble gum pop image, he has begun to act out. First there was photos of him smoking marijuana. Then a police search warrant for his house turned up cocaine. Now in his latest stunt, Justin was arrested for a DUI in Miami early this week.
The singer of “Baby” and other pop hits was clearly not using his head. He had his entourage close down a street in Miami so he and his friend could drag race a rented Ferrari and Lamborghini! The locals were not amused. Police were called and when they arrived they found a high Justin Bieber after allegedly consuming a large amount of alcohol, marijuana and prescription pills.
Per published reports, multiple cars were used to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive for the drag race. One of the people that was blocking the street was Justin’s 38-year-old father! Officers on the scene noticed signs of impairment on Justin.
Per the police report, the arresting officer said, “I immediately smelled an odor of alcohol eminating from the drivers breath and bloodshot eyes. The driver (Justin Bieber) had slow deliberate movements and a stuper look on his face. The police report can be read in full here.
The pop star did not help matters by reportedly cursing out the police and failing to follow directions. He was arrested for DUI and resisting arrest without violence. His friend and fellow drag racer was also arrested for driving under the influence.
Once at the police station, Justin was reported to be cooperative. He volunteered to undergo a drug test and a breathalyzer.
The next day his first appearance in front of the judge also went well. He was released on $2500 bond, a standard amount in this type of case.
Justin was not the only victim of his own carnage. A last minute report out of Miami mentioned that up to four police officers were suspended for escorting Bieber and his entourage to a strip club!
