The 19-year-old pop star was busted by Miami Beach Police early this morning. According to officials, Bieber was pulled over for speeding after leaving a Lincoln Road club. A field sobriety test was administered, which he failed.
"He is in custody," a source close to the singer has confirmed, adding that it's "not clear" if drag racing was actually involved. "There had been another car pulled over in front of him."
The arrest comes after a series of wannabe bad-boy maneuvers from Bieber, included alleged trips to brothels and strip clubs and his recent egging of his neighbor's home. Just yesterday, his mother, Pattie Mallette, was quoted in The Sun as urging fans to "pray for him." Perhaps a night in jail will get Bieber back on the straight and narrow. Kiddo, if you want us to think of you as a man, start acting like one.
More details after the jump.
