“Why the f**k are you doing this to me?” – Bieber’s rant at police after arrest
Justin Bieber reportedly swore at police after he was arrested for drag racing drunk
The 19-year-old Canadian pop star Bieber, who was at the wheel of a rented yellow Lamborghini, was arrested at 4.19am on Thursday morning.
According to the police report obtained by entertainment site, TMZ Bieber was defiant from the outset, shouting at the officers on the scene: "Why the f**k are you doing this?"
He also yelled: "What the f**k did I do. Why did you stop me?"
Bieber’s entourage had used large, black SUVs to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive, turning the street into a drag strip. Bieber was allegedly driving at up to 60mph.
Police officer Fulgencio Medina said that as he approached Bieber’s vehicle he noted Bieber’s “bloodshot eyes” and “stupor look”.
The police report states Bieber confessed to having beer, marijuana and prescription drugs in his system. Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez said the star was “a little belligerent”.
Bieber objected to Medina’s body search, reportedly saying, “I ain’t got no f***ing weapons, why do you have to search me, what the f*** is this about?”
R&B artist Khalil, who was driving a Ferrari, was also arrested. A drink driving conviction in Florida has a maximum jail term of six months.
Bieber reportedly visited a strip club on Lincoln Road on Wednesday night. The incident is thought to have taken place shortly after he left the venue, where he allegedly spent a cool $75,000.
A second person is thought to have been travelling with Bieber in the passenger seat. TMZ reports that the person is a model named Chantel. The article also suggests that Bieber's management blocked off the street especially for Bieber to drag race.
Bieber claimed he wasn't drunk and that he was returning from recording music in a studio.
However, the report suggests he had lied to law enforcement officers and was returning from the club.
Before the pat down, Bieber "kept going into his pants pocket" as he exited his vehicle.
The officer ordered him to put his hands on the vehicle, and Bieber initially complied but soon took his hands off the car, before turning round and swearing at the officer.
The policeman then grabbed Bieber by the right arm. He pulled his arm away, and said, "What the f**k are you doing?"
The report says Justin was driving between 55 and 60mph in a 30mph residential area.
“Justin just isn’t taking this seriously at all,” a source told Radar Online.
“He expects his attorneys to get him out of this mess.”
On Thursday afternoon Justin was released from jail after posting a $2,500 bail bond.
Before hopping into his chauffeured car while exiting the detention centre, he waved to screaming fans surrounding the premises.
"[Justin] made statements he had consumed some alcohol, been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication,” officials said at a news conference following the Canadian singer’s arrest.
And a resident of Justin’s exclusive Calabasas community shared his glee over news the teenage star is getting into trouble with the law.
“They finally caught HIM!” former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson tweeted.
“Everyone grows up at some point. Hopefully he learns from it.”
Justin has been accused of causing terror in his neighbourhood with his behaviour. His residents have complained he drives recklessly on the streets and throws wild parties.
A spokesperson for the singer has yet to issue an official comment on his arrest.
The news comes just one week after Bieber's Californian home was raided over claims he pelted a neighbour's house with eggs.
Bieber spent most of December teasing the music world with news of his retirement.
