Pop singer Justin Bieber has been arrested after drag racing on a Miami Beach street in a yellow Lamborghini and failing a test for drink-driving.
Officers saw two cars racing at 4:09 am today Miami Dade-Police spokesman Sgt Bobby Hernandez said.
Two vehicles apparently had been used to block off an area for the drag race. The second car was a red Ferrari, and that driver was also arrested. Both cars were towed away, Sgt Hernandez told WSVN.
Bieber failed a field sobriety test and was taken to the Miami Beach police station for a breath test and processing.
Police say the 19-year-old will be taken soon to the Miami-Dade County jail.
The arrest comes on the heels of another controversy for Bieber.
Officials have said that detectives in California recently searched Bieber's home looking for surveillance footage that might serve as evidence the pop star was involved in an egg-tossing vandalism case that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a neighbour's home.
In that case, authorities arrested one member of Bieber's entourage on suspicion of drug possession.
