Justin Bieber arrested for DUI

  • Print

Justin Bieber has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) and drag racing.

The 'Boyfriend' hitmaker was arrested earlier today (01.23.14) in Miami Beach, Florida, after driving a rented Lamborghini, police sources told NBC 6 South Florida.

There are no further details about the arrest at this stage but Justin is believed to be in police custody and a police statement is due this afternoon.

According to TMZ, Justin had just left a club and had a model in the passenger seat when he started racing a man in a red Lamborghini, who was also arrested.

Justin has visited a number of place in the town this week and yesterday posted a photograph on Instagram of him at a skate park with friends.

Meanwhile, Justin - who reportedly spent $75,000 at a strip club over the weekend - had his home in Calabasas, California, searched by police last week after he was accused of a vicious egg attack on his neighbor.

Detectives raided the 19-year-old star's mansion and one person was arrested on suspicion of drug possession.

The star has a number of run-ins with police and in July last year, marijuana and drug paraphernalia was also seized from one of the the singer's tour buses, although he was not on the bus at the time.

Justin's mother Pattie Mallette urged fans to pray for her son this week and insisted fame was to blame for his behavioral issues and wild antics.

She said: ''I think so many people go into the entertainment industry with amazing Christian roots and they go in with the right morals and they get influenced somehow.

''I ask that people keep me and Justin in their minds. I pray for him every day.''
