According to Miami Beach police, Justin Bieber was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license.

The police report states that  Justin was drag racing rented Lamborghini at speeds of 55-60 MPH in a residential area with a speed limit of 30 MPH.

Upon seeing this, a Miami Beach police officer, Officer Cosner, asked Justin to put the car in park; when the officer approached the 19-year-old, he asked, “What the fck did I do, why did you stop me?”

At this point, the officer asked JB to put his hands on the vehicle, which he did, although he quickly turned around the face the officer during a pat down, asking, “I ain’t got not fcking weapons, why do you have to search me? What the f*ck is this about?”

Justin was warned that if he continued to take his hands off the vehicle, he would be subject to arrest. When he failed to listen to these instructions, Officer Cosner told him he was under arrest.

At this point, he began to resist. With the help of additional officers, he was taken into custody.

When confronted, Justin Bieber "smelled a strong aroma of alcohol beverage," Miami Beach Police Chief Ray Martinez said.

During the investigation, he made statements that he consumed alcohol and smoke marijuana prior to being pulled over.
