Justin Bieber charged with drag racing, DUI, resisting arrest in Florida

Police in Miami Beach say Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber has been charged with resisting arrest without violence in addition to drag racing and driving under the influence.

Police also say the singer told authorities he had consumed alcohol, smoked marijuana and taken prescription drugs.

Chief Ray Martinez told a news conference this morning the singer was initially not co-operative when an officer pulled him over for drag racing.

Martinez says the singer also had an invalid Georgia driver's licence.

According to police, Bieber was driving a Lamborghini and R&B singer Khalil, who was also arrested, was driving a Ferrari. Both cars were towed.

Television footage showed a van believed to be carrying the pop star from a Miami Beach police station to a Miami-Dade County jail.

    Is he that stupid?? Or is he trying to get a bad boy reputation? If he gets convicted he's deported from the US. Maybe he should move in with Rob Ford and they can be the dynamic duo!

    Good!!! But remember he's a so-called "celebrity", so he'll get a suspended sentence and not much more.

    It's time that the courts set an example with these punks. REAL jail time and a REAL hefty fine. Someone innocent could have been killed because an idiot like bieber wants to drink and race.
