"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.
