Is nothing sacred? Pop star Justin Bieber was arrested for drag racing and DUI early Thursday morning in Miami Beach.
Formerly best known for his teen-friendly pop hits earlier this decade (and being Canadian), Bieber has run afoul of the law in recent months. He was recently investigated for allegedly egging a neighbor’s house — the neighbor says the egging did thousands of dollars with of damage, so I imagine the perp used ostrich eggs — and neighbors say he terrorizes the neighborhood with late-night music and reckless driving (in Bieber’s defense, this is the American dream immigrants come here for).
And now — the same week he was so friendly with the cops, receiving an unauthorized police escort — Bieber has been busted.
The incident happened around 4 a.m. in the area of Pine Tree Drive and West 26th Street, Miami Beach Police spokesman Sgt. Bobby Hernandez said.
Bieber, who was in a rented Lamborghini, was pulled over in the area along with another car, police said. He failed a sobriety test at the scene and was taken into custody, Hernandez said. The other driver was also arrested. No one was injured.
TMZ adds that both men were driving Lambos. Just your average 19-year-old’s night!
Bieber, as noted, is Canadian. One cause for deportation is crimes of “moral turpitude.” Drunk drag racing seems like a crime of “moral turpitude” to me! Better get started on a legal defense fund, Beliebers.
