Early this morning, (Jan. 23) Justin Bieber was arrested after he was pulled over for drag racing and driving under the influence. According to CBS Miami, a Bieber blew a .014 and .011 on a breathalyzer. Both results are below legal limit, but the 19-year-old is still underage. Bieber appeared in court earlier today and his bail was set at $2,500.
The arrest report states that the officer smelled an “odor of alcohol emanating from the drivers breath and bloodshot eyes.” It continues to explain that Bieber had “slow deliberate movements and a stupor look on his face.” Under the influence, Bieber did not understand why he was being arrested and continually asked each officer, while cursing, why he was being transported to the Miami Beach Police Department.
“Why the f*** are you doing this?” Bieber said. “What the f*** did I do? Why did you stop me? I ain’t got no f***ing weapons, why do you have to search me? What the f*** is this about?”
