MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Just days after an alleged text argument between him and ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez surfaced on the Internet, Justin Bieber is again making headlines– this time, for being arrested in Miami. 

nbcmiami.com reported that Justin was arrested for drag racing and for alleged DUI (driving under the influence) in Miami Beach.

According to this report from local news outlet WSVN, police said that Justin was arrested a little after 4 am after police noticed two cars drag racing in a residential area. 

Bieber was driving one of the cars, a yellow Lamborghini, when he was pulled over by police. 

According to the arrest report tweeted by the Miami Beach Police, police noted Justin’s bloodshot eyes and that his breath smelled of alcohol. He at first refused to get out of the car, saying, “Why the f*** are you doing this.” He eventually got out of the car and was arrested. 

He was reportedly taken to the Miami Beach Police station for further DUI investigation. Reports also say that Bieber’s friend, singer Khalil Amir Sharieff, was also arrested for DUI. 

The Miami Beach Police also tweeted the photos of Justin and Khalil’s mug shots: 

In a news conference, Miami Beach Police Chief Ray Martinez said that after his arrest, Bieber admitted to having taken alcohol, prescription drugs, and having smoked marijuana. No specifics as to the quantity of the drugs and alcohol were given. 

In the news conference, police also confirmed that the charges would be DUI, having no valid driver’s license out of the state of Georgia, and resisting arrest without violence.

The singer has been spotted enjoying time in Miami. A skate shop (Instagram @miaskateshop) recently shared this photo of the singer with friend Khalil visiting their shop.
