Justin Bieber arrested for driving under the influence and drag racing

Justin Bieber has been arrested in Florida on suspicion of driving under the influence.

He was also picked up by cops on Miami Beach for apparently drag racing in a rented Lamborghini.

The incident is alleged to have happened early on Thursday morning (January 23) on Pine Tree Drive and 26th Street.

The Associated Press report that officials at the Miami-Dade Department of Corrections have confirmed that the singer has not yet been booked into jail.

Police have since told the Miami Herald that Bieber was most likely under the influence of drugs and that he resisted arrest without violence and held no valid licence.

His entourage also blocked off the road in order to create a drag strip for the 19-year-old and his friends. Rapper Khalil was also arrested.

Police recently searched Bieber's house in Los Angeles after the singer was accused of throwing eggs at a neighbour.

His friend Lil Za was arrested on charges of possessing drugs.

Bieber's mother Pattie Mallette meanwhile recently asked poeple to pray for her son instead of kicking him when he's down, saying:

"I ask that people keep me and Justin in their minds. I pray for him every day."
