Justin Bieber and friends just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. The 19-year-old pop phenom was picked up in Miami Beach early Thursday morning (Jan. 23) for drag racing and a DUI, reports TMZ.
Police spotted The Biebs in a residential neighborhood after leaving a nightclub driving a yellow Lamborghini with a model in the passenger seat. He was given a sobriety test at the scene and failed. The driver of the car he was racing — a red Lamborghini — was also arrested.
Just last week, on the other side of the country, his friend Lil Za was arrested twice in 24-hours, once at Bieber’s Los Angeles home, where authorities raided and took him in for drug possession. That raid was prompted by a call about Bieber egging a neighbor’s house — to the tune of $20,000 worth of damages.
Za was then arrested again for vandalizing a phone at the police station.
And that’s only the first month of 2014. There were similar antics that found his friend Lil Twist in trouble last year as well (sometimes involving Bieb’s Ferrari); and it’s gotten so hot in paradise that Bieber has threatened retirement.
Bieber is still under investigation for the egging. This was his first arrest.
