Justin Bieber was arrested this morning on charges of drag racing and failing a sobriety test, Miami Beach Police tell New Times this morning.

"Kid needs help," police spokesperson Bobby Hernandez says. Hernandez added that Bieber's entourage blocked traffic at Pine Tree Drive and 26th Street to create a "drag racing strip" so the pop star would have ample space to speed.

Upon arrest, Bieber wouldn't remove his hands from his pockets, and he might face charges of resisting arrest without violence, the Herald reports. Tests show he was under the influence of drugs.

"He showed symptoms of someone under the influence of drugs or alcohol," Hernandez said.

As of this morning, no charges have materialized against him in Miami-Dade Court, and a review of prison records shows he's not incarcerated. But Bieber is on his way to jail and booking, police say. Update: Bieber was booked at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center at 10:36 a.m.

Here's the full arrest report:

Surprised to hear his long-lost father was in on the street racing by helping to block off a street to make it free of vehicles-way to go Dad! Justin needs some tough-love or a good spanking. Seems like he went from a nice, thoughtful kid to a spoiled brat-so much for instant stardom-wonder what his mom thinks about all this (I can just imagine).

I don't blame the media for all the attention they give Bieber. They are just reacting to what people will read. Just look at how many comments this story got. That's not the messenger's fault. That's out fault.

"Justin Bieber Arrested in Miami Beach"

Uh, don't look now, but the USSA has eliminated habeus corpus, it has LEGALIZED torture, financial fraud, kidnappings, wiretapping EVERYBODY, drone bombing U.S. citizens at presidential whim, secret courts, secret warrants, gag orders, drone bombing weddings & birthday parties in the Middle East (then waiting for emergency responders to arrive on site in order to drone-bomb them yet AGAIN), war crimes, crimes against humanity, embezzlement on a scale previously unknown to mankind. We're FORCED to buy over-priced 'healthcare' that SVCKS. Our presidente seems to think that he's a DICTATOR. ....I dunno...

MAYBE THERE A MORE I M P O R T A N T THINGS HAPPENING IN THE USSA RIGHT NOW? Just a thought.

Y'all shouldn't put so much media attention on this. There are bigger things taking place in our streets. He needs help. And other ppl could use the spotlight.

At least he was being safe about drag racing... and he paid for a strippers college degree. Honestly, he's going down a pretty good path.

My question is, where the F does one drag race on Miami Beach? Pine Tree Road? He picked Pine Tree Road? Why not just start burning rubber on ocean drive? Washington Ave? #IDIOT
