Justin Bieber arrested in Miami

Justin Bieber is in trouble - again.

The pop star was arrested early Thursday for drag racing and DUI in Miami Beach, police confirmed on Twitter.

Police say R&B artist Khalil was also arrested. In an Instagram photo before the incident, he wrote: "Miami nights ridin thru yo city in that hot wheel."

Bieber, 19, was booked at Miami Beach police headquarters on charges of driving under the influence, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest "without violence", according to police records. He is listed as being 5-foot-9 and 140 lbs.

After his arrest, Bieber cursed out the arresting officer then admitted to having beer, pot and prescription drugs in his system, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald.

At a press conference Thursday morning, police chief Martinez said, "At first he was a little belligerent ... using some choice words, questioning why he had been stopped."

Bieber was in a rented yellow Lamborghini. Khalil was in a red Ferrari.

The bad boy's entourage had apparently used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, says the Miami Herald, to create a drag strip for the star.

According to Miami Beach Police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez, the incident happened about 4 a.m. "He was pulled over and failed a field sobriety test," Hernandez told the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.

Police Chief Martinez told the Herald that Bieber was incoherent, had his hands in his pockets and was driving with an invalid Georgia driver's license.

For a first drunken driving offense, there is no minimum sentence and a maximum of six months, a fine of $250 to $500, and 50 hours of community service. For anyone under 21, there is an automatic six-month license suspension, according to AP.
