Police say two SUVs blocked the road so that the 19-year-old popstar could race friend and fellow singer Khalil in a rented yellow Lamborghini.
Earlier in the evening Khalil used Instagram to post a number of photos showing Bieber in the supercar, with one photo captioned “Miami nights ridin thru yo city in that hot wheel.”
When pulled over by Miami Beach Police Department around 4 a.m. , police say Bieber was uncooperative when asked to get out of his car, and subsequently failed a field sobriety test.
Police spokeswomen Vivian Hernandez said that Bieber was also charged with resisting arrest without violence and driving with an expired Georgia driver’s license.
