MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Pop star Justin Bieber appears to be heading to a South Florida jail after being arrested on drag-racing and DUI charges on a residential Miami Beach Street.
Television footage early Thursday showed a van believed to be carrying the pop star from a Miami Beach police station to a Miami-Dade County jail. The van was trailed by squad cars. After the van left the station, police said Bieber was gone.
Police say Bieber and an R&B singer known as Khalil were arrested early Thursday.
According to police, Bieber was driving a Lamborghini and Khalil was driving a Ferrari.
Sgt. Bobby Hernandez says Bieber failed a field sobriety test. Bieber and Khalil both face drag-racing and driving under the influence charges.
