Justin Bieber has been arrested for driving under the influence and drag racing in Miami Beach.
FANS SHOW THEIR SUPPORT FOR JUSTIN BIEBER
19-year-old Justin's blood alcohol content (BAC) was .04, which will see charges against him raised even further.
REPORT: BIEBER'S MOTHER GAVE HIM THE PRESCRIPTION MEDS?
Both Justin and the person he was drag racing with were both arrested, with his mugshot being released to the public. In it, he is seen smiling (below).
Police say that Bieber is charged with driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and resisting arrest. He also did not have a valid driver's licence.
The young star told police that he'd been drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana and consuming prescription medication.
"What the f*** did I do? Why did you stop me?" Bieber asked the police officer who pulled him over just after 4 a.m.
The officer pulled Bieber's car over, but the singer was "was not cooperating with the officer's instructions," Martinez said.
"At first, he was a little belligerent, using some choice words questioning why he was being stopped and why the officer was even questioning him," he said.
He allegedly ignored a police officer's request to keep his hands on the car while he did "a cursory patdown for weapons," the report said.
"I ain't got no f***ing weapons," the arresting officer quoted Bieber as saying. "Why do you have to search me? What the f*** is this about?"
The arrest report describes Bieber as having a "flushed face, bloodshot eyes, and the odor of alcohol on his breath."
A standard $2500 bond was set for his release, and Bieber has now left the courthouse.
Bieber's night in jail doesn't appear to have dampened his mood. He was spotted smiling while leaving court and then jumped on top of an SUV waving to the crowd.

Will this be the wakeup call Justin needs to get his life in order? Or is this just a major step on his downward spiral?
Justin Bieber's mother Pattie Mallette is said to have supplied the prescription medication to her son shortly before his arrest for DUI.
Justin Bieber's fans have come to his defence, and offered support after the young singer was arrested earlier this morning.
