Early Thursday morning, Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami for DUI and drag racing. The Miami Beach Police Department confirmed the arrest via their Twitter account, writing, "Breaking News, confirming @justinbieber has been arrested for DUI & Drag Racing more info & press release coming." They also confirmed that Khalil Sharief was arrested with Bieber for drag racing and DUI, as well.
Details remain scant at this point, but according to reports, the "Heartbreaker" singer was driving a rented Lamborghini at the time of the bust.
So far, nothing's comin' up Bieber in 2014. The singer's arrest comes smack dab in the middle of an ongoing investigation in California that connects Bieber to an egg attack on a neighbor's house.
It's been reported numerous times over the past few months that Bieber has a drug problem. He's yet to confirm that he is, in fact, addicted to cough syrup with codeine, but sources claim that many of his friends, including his manager, Scooter Braun, are urging him to get help. Clearly, he's not there yet.
Who knows what it's going to take to get Bieber to check into a rehab facility, but hopefully this arrest will get him a little closer, as a DUI is nothing that should be taken lightly. He and everyone who was around him at the time may be okay (and he may wind up getting off easy, like most celebrities), but the sad truth is, he could have killed himself or someone else. It's time he admitted he has a problem.
What do you think is going to get Justin to rehab?
