Justin Bieber has been arrested in Miami Beach after being accused of DUI and drag racing.
The Miami Beach Police Department said Justin Bieber, 19, was detained after racing on a street early on Thursday and had failed an alcohol test.
The singer has had several run-ins with police in recent years.
The arrest comes a week after Justin Bieber’s home in Los Angeles was searched by police following allegations he had thrown eggs at his neighbor’s house.
Justin Bieber was accused of causing significant damage to the property. One member of his entourage was arrested for alleged drug possession following the search.
In the latest incident, the Associated Press quoted police as saying Justin Bieber had been driving a yellow Lamborghini when he was arrested in the early hours of Thursday.
The Miami Herald reported that members of Justin Bieber’s entourage had apparently used their cars to block traffic on Pine Tree Drive at 26th Street, effectively creating a drag strip.
The driver of a second car, a red Ferrari, was also arrested and both cars impounded, said Miami Dade-Police spokesman Sgt. Bobby Hernandez.
Police later named the other driver as an R&B singer known as Khalil.
The street where police say the singer was racing is a residential area in mid-Miami Beach.
Small apartment buildings are along one side of the street and on the other side are a high school, a youth centre, a golf course and a fire station.
Justin Bieber lives in a gated community in Calabasas, about 30 miles north-west of central Los Angeles.
