The 19 year old singer was stopped by the Miami Police at about 4 am.
After driving drunk, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license, Justin Bieber was arrested on Thursday morning. Bieber was apparently racing a yellow Lamborghini in a residential area, driving over the speed limit. The pop singer asked the police officer casually: “What the f*** did I do? Why did you stop me?”. He spent the night in jail after failing the sobriety test (having drank alcohol, smoked marijuana and taken some medication) and appeared before a judge in an orange uniform. The bail was set at $2,500. Meanwhile, sources close to the singer say they’ve been asking him to seek therapy for a while now, according to TMZ.
After news of the arrest surfaced, celebrities as well as fans reacted on Twitter – some concerned, some humorously. There’s even an account called JustinBiebersMugshot now, and hashtags like #WeWillAlwaysSupportYouJustin but also #DeportBieber are trending. Here are some of the tweets concerning the arrest:
Lena Dunham: “The only crazy part of Justin Bieber arrest is that he was “popping anti-depressants all day.” Anti-depressants take like 3 months to work.”
Ellen DeGeneres: “It’s hard to hear all this news about @JustinBieber. I hope he makes his way to adulthood without him or anyone else getting hurt.”
Ricky Gervais: “Prison name: Justine Bieber” followed by “Prison Game: Just in Bieber”.
Jason London: “Finally. Bieber. Street cred. #VanillaKilla.”
