Justin Bieber was arrested early Thursday morning after leaving a Miami Beach club, accused of drag racing and DUI, police said. Police allege the pop singer admitted to having beer, marijuana and prescription drugs in his system.
Miami Beach police said Bieber was pulled over for speeding in a yellow Lamborghini and failed a field sobriety test. This is a first-degree misdemeanor, which could get him up to six months in jail and have his license suspended for six months.
But he may be eligible for a program for first-time offenders that recurs the charge to reckless driving, says defense attorney Mark Eiglarsh, who is not involved in this case. Florida has zero tolerance for underage drinkers and if the singer enters a program for first-time offenders Bieber will have to steer clear of all drugs and alcohol.
Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald that Bieber was under the influence of drugs and incoherent. He had his hands in his pockets and resisted arrest without violence, the chief said, adding that the singer didn’t have a driver’s license. His Georgia license was expired.
