Oh dear. After months of bad behaviour – visiting brothels and throwing eggs at people’s houses – Justin Bieber has been arrested. Nope, it’s not chicken related, the singer was picked up at in Miami for DUI and drag racing in the early hours of this morning their time.
The singer was reportedly speeding in a residential area when he was pulled over by the Miami Beach Police in his yellow Lamborgini. According to the police report – which they have bizarrely tweeted the whole of – Bieber tried to resist being searched eventually resulting in his arrest. He was then taken to the police department where he was tested for alcohol and drugs.
The Police Chief Raymond Martinez confirmed the arrest himself and said the officer on the job had smelt alcohol in Justin’s car. ‘The officer smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Mr Biebers car,’ he said. There have been unconfirmed reports that Justin had been drinking beer and was under the influence of anti-depressants and weed. The police report also notes that Bieber does not have an in date drivers license.
Recently Justin’s Mum Patti revealed that she was worried for her son, asking that people not judge him too harshly. She told The Sun newspaper, ‘I think so many people go into the entertainment industry with amazing Christian roots and they go in with the right morals and they get influenced somehow,’ adding, ‘I ask that people keep me and Justin in their minds. I pray for him every day. If Justin's struggling, don't kick him when he's down or condemn him - pray for him.'
Since his arrest Justin’s mugshot has been released. In it the singer is pictured smiling widely wearing an orange t-shirt a second shot shows him side on looking more sobre. Justin isn’t the first celebrity to face the wrath of the law for his bad behaviour these five have also faced the police…
1. Hugh Grant
Hugh Grant kind of shattered completely obliterated that innocent English gentleman thing he had going on when he was arrested in 1995 and charged with indecent conduct with a prostitute in LA. He was even going out with Liz Hurley at the time. Oh dear.
2. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie has been arrested not once but TWICE! Once in 2003 for heroin possession and driving with a suspended licence and once in 2006 for DUI. We’re pleased to say she’s put it all behind her now (we think).
3. Heather Locklear
And another odd one: in 2010, Heather was arrested for a hit and run - and she was also previously arrested for driving under the influence of prescription medicine. Maybe celebrities just shouldn’t be allowed in cars. Is that the answer?
4. Khloe Kardashian
Dear famous people, how about not getting drunk and getting in your car? Khloe joins a lot of other starry types who have been arrested for DUI. Perhaps she ought to hire herself a chauffeur.
5. Samantha Ronson
Samantha Ronson, who spent a lot of time going out with Lindsay Lohan (ie: Hollywood’s most arrested person ever), was picked up herself for DUI in 2009. She was apparently leaving a DJ show when the police stopped her. Oops.
