Canadian pop star Justin Bieber was charged with drunk driving, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license after police saw the singer street racing early Thursday morning.
Bieber also reportedly resisted an arrest at first, by yelling threats to the cop who pulled him over saying, “What the f*** did I do? Why did you stop me?”
The officer saw Bieber driving a yellow Lamborghini in a race against a red Ferrari in a residential area of Miami Beach.

The 19 year old singer was released from a Miami jail an hour after he made a brief appearance before a Miami judge, who set a “standard” $2,500 bond Thursday afternoon.
He strutted out of the jail dressed in black, with a baggy hoodie covering his head. Bieber then briefly sat on top of a black Cadillac Escalade, where he waved to screaming fans, before he was chauffeured away.

his stay in Brazil.
The officer that pulled Bieber’s car over says that the singer was “was not cooperating with the officer’s instructions”.
“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.

“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?”
This arrest was followed after many activities that Bieber had made himself known for recently, which caused many headlines like the short video online by Tatiana Neves Barbosa, a Brazilian hooker, taping the “Baby” singer sleeping. Bieber has also famously missed several of his own concerts and arriving late, and wrote a controversial note in Anne Frank’s house during his visit.
