Why was Justin Bieber arrested is a question on his fans’ minds as the young singer is currently in jail following a DUI and drug use arrest.
Police stated that Justin Bieber was arrested after the 19-year-old pop sensation was pulled over for drag racing. Upon further inspection, police state that Bieber was intoxicated and under the influence of drugs.
Bieber reportedly told police that he consumed alcohol, smoked marijuana and had taken prescription drugs prior to drag racing through the streets of Miami. Ray Martinez, police chief in the Miami area, told reporters that Justin Bieber was drag racing his yellow Lamborghini against another driver in a Ferrari. Martinez also stated that Bieber was uncooperative with police at the time of his arrest.
According to the police report, Bieber was under the influence as the report states:
“The driver had slow, deliberate movements and a stupor look on his face.”
The drag race took place along Pine Tree in Miami, where both vehicles were speeding 55-60 mph in a 30 mph street.
Justin Bieber has been making headlines as the singer is also a suspect in a vandalism case against his neighbors.
Justin Bieber and his representatives have not commented about the arrest at this time. The other driver who was arrested has not been publicly named by police.
Below is the description by the arresting officer in the police report at the time of Justin Bieber’s arrest:
