Looks like the inevitable has happened. Justin Bieber, one of pop music’s more maligned and troubled stars, was charged in Miami for drunk driving, resisting arrest, and driving without a valid license after being pulled over for drag racing in a rented Lamborghini.

A Miami Beach police officer first observed Bieber’s yellow Lamborghini racing a red Lamborghini in a residential neighborhood, with both cars speeding between 55 and 60 mph in a 30 mph zone. According to Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez, Bieber “was not cooperating with the officer's instructions” after the strong smell of alcohol wafted out of the car’s open window.

"At first, he was a little belligerent, using some choice words questioning why he was being stopped and why the officer was even questioning him," Martinez said. After he failed a roadside sobriety test, Bieber admitted to consuming alcohol, smoking marijuana, and taking undisclosed prescription drugs.

The arrest was the latest in a series of widely publicized brushes with the law for the Biebs. Just last week, Los Angeles Sheriffs raided the singer’s Calabasas home following an egg-throwing incident that resulted in the drug possession arrest of live-in friend, Lil Za.
