Early this morning, (Jan. 23) Justin Bieber was arrested after he was pulled over for drag racing and driving under the influence. According to CBS Miami, a Bieber blew a .014 and .011 on a breathalyzer. Both results are below legal limit, but the 19-year-old is still underage. Bieber appeared in court earlier today and his bail was set at $2,500.
The arrest report states that the officer smelled an “odor of alcohol emanating from the drivers breath and bloodshot eyes.” It continues to explain that Bieber had “slow deliberate movements and a stupor look on his face.” Under the influence, Bieber did not understand why he was being arrested and continually asked each officer, while cursing, why he was being transported to the Miami Beach Police Department.
“Why the f*** are you doing this?” Bieber said. “What the f*** did I do? Why did you stop me? I ain’t got no f***ing weapons, why do you have to search me? What the f*** is this about?”
OFC. COSNER #526 WAS TRAVELING SOUTHBOUND ON PINE TREE DRIVE AND OBSERVED TWO LAMBORGINIS (ONE YELLOW AND ONE RED) NORTHBOUND IN THE 2600 BLOCK OF PINE TREE DRIVE. OFC. COSNER STATES THAT HE OBSERVED TWO BLACK SUV’S BEHIND BOTH VEHICLES AS IF TO STOP TRAFFIC GOING NORTHBOUND. THIS FACILITATED AN OPEN ROAD FOR THE TWO LAMBORGINIS TO RACE.
OFC. COSNER THEN MADEAU-TURN AND BEGAN TRAVELING NORTHBOUND TO CATCH UP TO THE VEHICLES. OFC. COSNER OBSERVED BOTH VEHICLES START A CONTEST OF SPEED (DRAG RACING) FROM A START . OFC. COSNER ESTIMATES THAT BOTH VEHICLES ATTAINED AN APPROXIMATE SPEED OF ABOUT 55-60 MPH. THE SPEED LIMIT IN THIS RESIDENTIAL AREA IS 30 MPH. OFC. COSNER VIA HIS RADIO ADVISED OTHER UNITS OF THE SPEEDING VEHICLES. I WAS AT 41ST AND PINETREE WHEN THE RADIO TRANSMISSION WAS MADE. I OBSERVED BOTH VEHICLES APPROACHING 41ST STREET. OFC. COSNER INITIATED A TRAFFIC STOP ON THE RED FERRARI AT 41ST AND PINETREE DR. THE YELLOW LAMBORGINI MADE A RIGHT TURN ONTO 41 ST AND CONTINUED EAST BOUND.
I CAUGHT UP TO THE YELLOW LAMBORGINI AND INITIATED A TRAFFIC STOP AT THE 300 BLK OF 41ST. I APPROACHED THE VEHICLE ON THE DRIVER SIDE. I ASKED THE DRIVER TO PLACE THE VEHICLE IN PARK. AT THIS TIME, THE DRIVER. BEGAN TO STATE: “WHY DID YOU STOP ME.”
I EXPLAINED TO THE DRIVER THAT HE WAS STOPPED BECAUSE HE WAS DRAG RACING WITH THE OTHER LAMBORGINI. I IMMEDIATELY SMELLED AN ODOR OF ALCOHOL EMANATING FROM THE DRIVERS BREATH AND BLOODSHOT EYES. THE DRIVER HAD SLOW DELIBERATE MOVEMENTS AND A STUPER LOOK ON HIS FACE. THESE ARE ALL INDICATORS OF AN IMPAIRED DRIVER. I ASKED THE DRIVER TO EXIT THE VEHICLE TO CONTINUE MY INVESTIGATION OF A POSSIBLE IMPAIRED DRIVER. THE DRIVER STATED: “WHY THE F*** ARE YOU DOING THIS”?
FINALLY, THE DRIVER EXITED THE VEHICLE AS HE KEPT GOING INTO HIS PANTS POCKETS. I ASKED THE DRIVER TO NOT GO INTO HIS POCKETS FOR MY SAFETY AND HIS. FEARING THAT THE DRIVER MIGHT HAVE A WEAPON OR CONTRABAND, I ASKED THE DRIVER TO PLACE HIS HANDS ON HIS VEHICLE IN ORDER TO FACILITATE A CURSORY PATDOWN FOR WEAPONS. THE DRIVER STATED: “WHAT THE F*** DID I DO, WHY DID YOU STOP ME.”
AGAIN I ASKED THE DRIVER TO PLACE HIS HANDS ON HIS VEHICLE. THE DRIVER COMPLIED BUT TOOK HIS HANDS OFF THE VEHICLE SOON AFTER AND TURNED AROUND TO FACE ME. AGAIN I ASKED THE DRIVER TO NOT TAKE HIS HANDS OFF HIS CAR AND TO LOOK FORWARD BECAUSE I WAS GOING TO PERFORM A CURSORY PATDOWN. THE DRIVER STATED: “I AINT GOT NO F***ING WEAPONS, WHY DO YOU HAVE TO SEARCH ME,WHAT THE F*** IS THIS ABOUT?”
I ADVISED THE DRIVER THAT IF HE CONTINUED TO TAKE HIS HANDS OFF HIS VEHICLE, HE WOULD BE SUBJECT TO ARREST. THE DRIVER AGAIN TURNED AROUND TO FACE ME. AT THIS TIME, I GRABBED HIS RIGHT HAND AND STATED TO HIM THAT HE WAS UNDER ARREST. THE DRIVER BEGAN TO RESIST ME BY PULLING HIS RIGHT ARM AWAY AS HE STATED: “WHAT THE F*** ARE YOU DOING.”
I ADVISED THE DRIVER NOT TO RESIST AND WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF OFC. MOLINA ID# 064 AND OFC. SOCARRAS #501 , WE PLACED HIM INTO CUSTODY WITH NO FURTHER INCIDENT. THE DEF.WAS TRANSPORTED TO THE MIAMI BEACH POLICE DEPARTMENT BY OFFICER DIONNE. WHILE EN ROUTE TO THE STATION, DEF INQUIRED AS TO WHY HE’D BEEN ARRESTED. OFFICER DIONNE ADVISED HIM THAT HE BELIEVED HE WAS IMPAIRED. DEF ADVISED THAT HE WAS NOT DRUNK, AND THAT HE WAS COMING BACK FROM RECORDING MUSIC AT A STUDIO.
ONCE AT THE MBPD HOLDING FACILITY, OFFICER DIONNE OBSERVED DEF TO HAVE A FLUSHED FACE, BLOODSHOT EYES, AND THE ODOR OF AN ALC. BEV. ON HIS BREATH. DEF WAS OFFERED SFSTs ON A FLAT, DRY, SMOOTH, AND WELL LIT SURFACE (SEE DUI TEST REPORT FOR RESULTS). DEF DID NOT PERFORM TO STANDARDS. DEF LATER AGREED TO A BREATH TEST AS WELL AS A DRUG EVALUATION.
