Pop star Justin Bieber was arrested early this morning in Miami Beach, FL with TMZ.com listing his charges as including driving under the influence, drag racing, resisting arrest and driving on an expired license. TMZ says that Bieber was stopped for street racing his Lamborghini Gallardo, then failing a field sobriety test, and is being charged with resisting arrest for "refusing to take his hands out of his pockets."

It's also being reported that Bieber was racing against rapper Khalil (also arrested) who seems to have been driving a Ferrari 16M Scuderia Spider (although it was mistakenly called a "red Lambo" in the article). There is no additional information about the arrest of either men, but TMZ has obtained eyewitness video, which is posted below, that shows Bieber in his Lamborghini surrounded by fans and then later shows the car stopped by police officers.

UPDATE: As it turns out, the cars in question didn't actually belong to either Bieber or Khalil. We just received an email that indicates that both the Ferrari and the Lamborghini involved in the incident were rentals. The president of Lou La Vie, an exotic car rental outfit in Miami, is claiming ownership of both vehicles, though didn't provide any other significant information regarding the case.

      On behalf of Canadians and humanity in general, we'd like to apologize for inflicting this weapon of mass douchebaggery on the rest of the world.

        Ah, don't feel bad. The United States still leads the rest of the world by light years in douche bags per square mile.

      Aw, screw it. I'll jump in too: He looks like a lesbian "special guest star" on Designing Women circa 1988. Also, I'm pretty sure Blanche from Golden Girls wore this once, if I'm not mistaken.

        Exactly what I was thinking. This is another example of what happens to children thrust into fame with bad handlers (read: parents). He is going to get worse and worse till he crashes and burns…which could happen at any moment with the crowd he hangs with!

      Can we please agree that this place will be a Bieber free zone, even if it involves a car in some way? E V E R Y other media outlet will carry stories on this dweeb's actions so it's not like we'll miss out on it. Please, let's set some standards.

      This is "obsessively covering the auto industry?" I thought I was on AB not TMZ. I can understand posting about what happened to Paul Walker. He had ties to auto enthusiasts. But this idiot has nothing to do with the auto world. Just because he has a nice pricey car doesn't make him worthy of being covered by you. Seriously - take this story down.

      I'd be the first person to donate to a Kickstarter campaign designated to kidnap this waste of combustible oxygen, stick him on a Delta III, and shoot him out of the galaxy. Make him Andromeda's problem...

      I think Jeremy Clarkson's sign was referring to this guy.

      Please leave Hillary Swank alone. She has done nothing to you. If she wants to drive fast, then let her.
