Well that didn't take long. Just a few hours after the news broke that Justin Bieber was busted drag racing while under the influence, we get the good stuff: the mug shot. Yup, Justin Bieber's mug shot has surfaced and man oh man it makes me want to slap him.
I mean come on, even the biggest of Beliebers have to be a bit disappointed in their idol here. The 19-year-old told cops that he was under the influence of anti-depressants, had been smoking pot all day, had a beer, and then got behind the wheel. Bieber could have died, he could have seriously injured his competitor Khalil Sharieff (who was also arrested), or he could have killed someone else.
That doesn't sound like a stream of occurrences to smile about, dude. Here, see Justin Bieber's mug shot:
See what I mean?! Even though I've admittedly downloaded a few myself, I don't care how many #1 songs Justin's had on iTunes. I don't care if he's in the middle of potentially rekindling things with Selena Gomez or that he's "retiring" from being a pop star. At this point, it seems like the kid (and yes, after this I think it's safe to say he has a LOT more growing up to do) has let all this fame seriously go to his head, to the point where he feels invincible. I'll say it again: This is NOTHING to smile about, Justin. This is serious.
More from The Stir: Justin Bieber's Wild Downward Spiral Has One Obvious Explanation
Someone needs to give Bieber the harsh awakening that he deserves. Maybe that someone's his mom Pattie Mallette. Maybe that someone's a jail security guard or perhaps a physician at a rehab facility. One thing's for sure: the next time (god forbid), he may not be so lucky.
Bieber fan or not, do you think it's time for Justin to get a wakeup call? What would you do if this were your child?
